Former Facebook executive: social media is ripping society apart
Ethiopia is certainly facing the "ripping apart" effect of this social media tool! The youth is totally consumed by it and evil forces are making sure the youth is reading their hateful messages and fake news that magnifies the diversity not the unity! Time for the government to think hard how to tackle such effect on its own instead of waiting for Facebook to come up with a better tool. The government must save the youth now, not tomorrow!

With what kind of measuring stick is the likes of Ginbot 7 and its members considered as dissidents?

It is not fair at all!
