Lawrence THE HANDLE, which varies in length according to the height of its user, and in some cases is made by that user to his or her specifications, is like most of the other parts of the tool in that it has a name and thus a character of its own.
It is hard to grasp just how extraordinary that is. Bear in mind that thefacebook — its original name — was launched exclusively for Harvard students in No human enterprise, no new technology or utility or service, has ever been adopted so widely so quickly.
The speed of uptake far exceeds that of the internet itself, let alone ancient technologies such as television or cinema or radio. The increase in numbers is not, as one might expect, accompanied by a lower level of engagement.
In the far distant days of Octoberwhen Facebook hit one billion users, 55 per cent of them were using it every day. At two billion, 66 per cent are. Three of the next four biggest apps, or services, or whatever one wants to call them, are WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram, with 1.
Those three entities have something in common: A non-Facebooker reading that is likely to ask: Connection is presented as an end in itself, an inherently and automatically good thing.
For instance, Facebook is generally agreed to have played a big, perhaps even a crucial, role in the election of Donald Trump. The benefit to humanity is not clear.

Plenty of companies, indeed entire industries, base their business model on being evil. Just ask anyone who has had a property suffer a major mishap.
This is especially an issue in the world of the internet. Internet companies are working in a field that is poorly understood if understood at all by customers and regulators.
Google and Facebook have both been walking this line from the beginning. Their styles of doing so are different. An internet entrepreneur I know has had dealings with both companies.
That kind of thing. But Google in my experience knows that there are ambiguities, moral doubts, around some of what they do, and at least they try to think about it.
That might sound harsh. There have, however, been ethical problems and ambiguities about Facebook since the moment of its creation, a fact we know because its creator was live-blogging at the time. While in his first year at Harvard, Zuckerberg suffered a romantic rebuff.

Misc thoughts, memories, proto-essays, musings, etc. And on that dread day, the Ineffable One will summon the artificers and makers of graven images, and He will command them to give life to their creations, and failing, they and their creations will be dedicated to the flames.
That seems different, though, because it requires rejecting one ideology/ingroup, namely Catholicism. It makes sense that people identifying as Catholic would resent that the Protestants found a way to weaken Catholicism, and apparently people who “took the soup” were ostracized.
