NFX partner James Currier talks with Sarah Frier, who reports on social media companies for Bloomberg News from San Francisco. Her stories have earned her a reputation as an expert on how Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter make business decisions that affect their future and our society as well as being the author of ‘NO FILTER: The Inside Story of Instagram.’

In this timely episode, Sarah and James discuss the role and effect social media has on society, what tech companies with tremendous network effects are doing or not doing with their influence, and how to think about navigating your social media impact as an early-stage Founder.   Listeners will be tempted to think of their own answers to the question: What would you do if you were CEO of Facebook?
