Casey Newton is The Verge’s lead editor covering Silicon Valley. In addition to digging up scoops on startups and their founders, he maintains an active (and hilarious) Twitter presence, a Facebook community (Casey Newton’s Maximum Content Zone) and curates a daily—yes, DAILY—email newsletter on the tenuous relationship between social media and democracy. In this special fireside chat, we’ll dive into the trends Casey is predicting ahead of 2018 and explore how Facebook and other social networks are recalibrating their strategies for the common good.
