E-Mail is mechanical - each article you share ends up in the folder
of the recipients - no filtering, no logic by which something important
can disappear from your dashboard.

No. Additionally you want to share the articles themselves rather
than the links as it means that your readers can get information
without exposing which one they considered most worth reading.

Little gestures that reduce how much we are a predictable populace
rather than a democratically enabled electorate.

If in 20 years time your kids ask you why you didn't act against
total surveillance while there was still free speech and such
you will be able to say, well, at least I helped inform the 
population on corruption scandals without exposing their interests 
in it more than technically necessary.

By using Facebook it isn't clear if the monitoring of population
interests outweighs in damage the achievements of informing people
about the Panama Papers.

Maybe you're just being another brick in the wall.
