Cover Battle: Fast Company or Businessweek

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. Today we have Fast Company versus Bloomberg Businessweek. Fast Company went with a cover advising us all to “unplug” from social media. Here’s what we always say when this tired subject comes up: If you feel the need to unplug from social media, you shouldn’t be using social media.

For its latest cover, Businessweek went with a scary illustration of Uncle Sam’s pet bald eagle, swooping down to kill us all. Enjoy the nightmares, everyone.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
