Quote of the Day (Jonathan Franzen, on Social Media as a ‘Protection Racket’)

“[Social media] feels like a protection racket. Your reputation will be murdered unless you join in this thing that is, in significant part, about murdering reputations. Why would I want to feed that machine?” —American novelist Jonathan Franzen quoted in Emma Brockes, “Jonathan Franzen Interview: ‘There is No Way to Make Myself Not Male,'” The Guardian (U.K.), Aug. 21, 2015
