* Footnote:

Facebook
• Fosters info bubbles, political division, polarization, dis/misinformation & conspiracy theories in the US & worldwide. Despite pressure to address these issues, they have repeatedly insisted they have little capability to address the problem.
• Facebook is being investigated on antitrust, users privacy & content moderation by the Federal Trade Commission, State Attorneys General, House Subcommittee on Antitrust, Senate Judiciary Committee & Federal Communications Commission.

Yelp
• Yelp’s mission is “to connect people with great local businesses.” Due recent challenges to local businesses, we are requesting that Yelp include a filter option for locally-based, independent businesses (i.e., not franchises & chains).
• In the meantime, you can type "Family Business" or "Family Restaurant" in the Yelp search window.
