Do you think tying Facebook employee bonuses to ‘social progress’ will accelerate positive changes? Curious to get your thoughts — and if you are a current / former employee, DM me or ask for my Signal 

Employees have told me that managers obsesses about their bonuses, and look for short-term projects that will get them to hit a certain metric every three months. So, a good-case scenario is that this inspires more thinking about what can be done quarter to quarter

A bad-case scenario is that these projects themselves have nasty unintended consequences! Anyway, I’m writing more about this today, would love to hear your thoughts 🙏
