The Interface
Facebook is my beat, and it can be an overwhelming one. That feels particularly true in this moment, when the company is under growing scrutiny from seemingly all sides. The company’s role in the 2016 election sparked a public-relations crisis, a Congressional investigation, and an endless series of takes about how the company should operate — or be regulated.
I spend much of the day reading, reporting, and writing about Facebook, but I don’t share much of that experience with an audience. This feels like a waste: it’s a huge part of my day! 
For fun, I’m putting together a newsletter. You can expect the day’s top stories about Facebook and its rivals, along with a sprinkling of analysis. I’m eager to get your feedback on what would be useful for you to hear — I’m @CaseyNewton on Twitter, and casey@theverge.com.
