But the core idea—that tools can be used well or badly, and that the people who make them are not responsible for how others use or misuse them—resonates with Zuckerberg’s frequent refrain that Facebook is a “neutral platform.”
But there is a fundamental difference between designing things to be used and trying to design use or the user experience.
One and the same thing can be used for many purposes. A chair might be used to support a sitting person but also as a ladder to stand on while changing a light bulb or as a clothes valet. Beside having particular material qualities, which make a chair usable as such, it also has the particular designation for its use. When no chair is at hand, other things might be used as a seat, and so the designation of a thing can be changed as fast as one can turn an empty bottle crate upside down to change its purpose from a container to that of a support.
