Social media is ‘undermining our democracies’

In an interview with FRANCE 24 at the Paris Peace Forum, US billionaire Frank McCourt strongly criticised tech giants, saying social media is “undermining our democracies”. The owner of French football club Olympique de Marseille told us more about his Project Liberty plan. He has invested $100 million in the initiative, which he hopes will “transform the way the internet works”.

The current tech architecture “is fundamentally flawed”, McCourt told FRANCE 24, saying that social media is “undermining our democracies”. His initiative is a “tech solution to a tech problem”, which aims to “give agency to individuals so individuals own and control their data”.
