What do you do if you’re Facebook?

Amid the waves of criticism over the way in which Facebook data has reportedly been misused to effectively penetrate people’s thoughts and target their psychological weak points, The Social Network is tasked with not only weathering the storm, but also keeping their ongoing initiatives moving, which includes getting more people to use Facebook more often.
