Alex Roarton, chief executive of the Recode network, sits down with Recode co-host Alex Pappas for a special podcast about the weird, the surprising, and the fascinating.
This episode of Recode Radio: It’s not just weird, it’s crazy.
Alex talks to Recode senior editor-in-chief Kara Swisher about the most bizarre and the most unexpected Facebook chats she’s ever seen, and why she believes she’s the only person who can handle it.
Alex shares the thoughts of Facebook users who have been sharing personal content on Facebook with strangers, like this guy who shared a link to a “basket of dog treats” on his timeline.
Alex also discusses why some users seem to enjoy sharing their own personal information, such as the guy who recently shared a selfie on Facebook and wrote, “I love this,” on his post.
This is not the first time Alex has talked about her own experience sharing information on Facebook.
Alex and Kara talk about the impact of this kind of sharing on the network, what she’d like to see in the future, and how Facebook will continue to evolve in the years ahead.
Alex is also the host of Recoded’s The Best of Kara Swishers and the author of the new book The Most Dangerous Man in the World: The Inside Story of the Most Dangerous Person in America.
