  1. Stop making excuses for Facebook they know exactly what’s going on it’s a lot of hate on Facebook right now

    1. It’s all ratings and ad revenue. You know what I do when I see a facebook ad? I flag it for false news, or sexual activity.

    2. Ironic how a Jew ,like Zuckerberg , uses Fascist Tactics!!!!! ! Boycott Facebook! Or as Elsa would say ” Let it GO!”

    1. @Shannon Greene ryereteusyrystyssyystsyeyrrersyrysreysetrryeryryr erteyyryseys really refuse eeyryryrtydtrysyryrre rswryrrsreeeyrysrreryrryrrtreyyryster eeserysdrysetysyryrsys tteyryruuseysyeursuyrtysrdryseeteryssryseryrryrrsyyrydey do yruru Dr urysur de ystrrreur we sryrtrusudyyeuuseurueusryrrsusysyr Dr rusruerfrtsdurueusesyeuerrudrruruseutrueu ururursurtrurureru ree were still Dr

    2. @Jaak Savat will you marry me? Finally someone clever enough to mangle my yt moniker in a creative way. One step further would be….immoral aspirations! That’s me lol and I am waiting for the class action against the evil Murdock empire to arise, but I prophesy its downfall as well….

      ….also if you like Japanese anime just search my name. Golden Kamuy is a great show and Asirpa is an awesome female character. Not a kid’s anime. Big sweeping historical adventure story. Also subtly romantic and hilariously funny. Meh…I must be bored. Makes me chatty. Cheers, my friend.

    1. Russia made him richer. He knows it. Loves it. That prck still has the first penny he was given as a child.

  2. I don’t get it – of course the stock soared after they threw out the antitrust lawsuit. Doesn’t that always happen?
    But yeah, they are using whackamole on purpose, they don’t want to change the algorithm because it’s so profitable. Democracy be damned.

  3. I left years ago, and hate, Hate, HATE Facebook to this day.

    What I REALLY HATE are the BUSINESSES whom use it for their website. I have lost count of the restaurants whose menus are inaccessible, and therefore lose my money. Oh well.

    1. I’m with you, I tried facebook for about a few months and got tired of showing people facts and all the meme that where just down right discussing. I wanted to join to see how family was doing and connect with old friends but quickly was bombarded with BS ads and hate speech.

    1. Same as all companies. Our system is setup for this type of behavior. When we worship money these things happen.

  4. “If all you had ever felt toward another person were the cold wish to “win,” how would you understand the meaning of love, of friendship, of caring? You would not understand. You would simply go on dominating, and denying, and feeling superior. Perhaps you would experience a little emptiness sometimes, a remote sense of dissatisfaction, but that is all.”
    ― Martha Stout, The Sociopath Next Door

  5. Much as I loathe Facebook, *ruthlessly exploiting your customers and endangering their lives* is a standard American business practice, isn’t it?

  6. Facebook is garbage. I regret ever being a part of it. I left it a few months back and I do not miss it.

  7. The DOJ & LEO Agencies can and have subpoenaed posts & sites that FB has taken down, because FB still has all Their Digital Archives, since Day 1.

  8. Funny how a platform used to find hook ups would turn into a platform of disgusting information, who would have seen that coming?

  9. I’ve stopped using facebook for nearly a year now..Got tired of the newsfeeds and nonsense.. It used to be great for keeping in touch with friends but now it’s just toxic.

  10. I don’t understand how millions of people voluntarily allow personal data about them to be commodified into making billions by one guy. The world is a strange place.

  11. While I definitely won’t ever excuse “the zuck”, I think it’s important to point out that his “social network” does nothing but allow people to reveal their true nature, starting with their prejudices and general stupidity. It’s been nearly 20 years, you’d think a so-called “intelligent species” would have ditched this evil enterprise by now. FB is the best proof I can give that humans aren’t, in fact, intelligent. Clever, at best, and only for a few of us.
