Roger McNamee, who manages private equity firm Elevation Partners with U2's Bono and other investors, was an earlier mentor to Mark Zuckerberg and one of Facebook's earliest investors. But now he is one of the platform's most poignant critics. In this interview with Real Vision's Brian Price, McNamee shares intimate stories from the early days of Facebook. He also discusses issues of privacy and addiction, and makes the call for social media titans like Facebook, Google and Twitter to be regulated. Filmed on April 5, 2018 in Menlo Park, California.
