Break up Facebook

Even the EU Parliament is skeptical of Zuckerberg's Monster:
Zuckerberg responded after the questioning, addressing the issue of political bias.

"We are committed to being a platform for all ideas," he declared. "It's very important to me that we're a service that allows a wide variety of political discourse."

"We have never and will not make decisions about what content is allowed or how we do ranking on the basis of a political orientation," Zuckerberg said.

"We've made a number of changes this year to make sure we're showing people's friends and family and community content," he said, citing the "well-being" research the company has done to make sure that the technology is helping people. All the research, he said, shows that connecting with people you care about is "good for your well-being." He explained that news "isn't correlated with those same benefits."

He reiterated that Facebook is "not targeting any specific political ideology."
I'm dubious that such shameless lying is going to help his cause much.

Lolwut, Zuck?

I wonder if he lives in one of those bubbles where nobody says, 'no' to him. Nobody is brave enough to call him out when he lies. Either that or he's a sociopath who just lies for the hell of it.

I just got suspended from Twitter for a post containing two words: "Operation Wetback."

They won't allow me to reference a well-known historical term for an official policy implemented by the Attorney General for the INS in conjunction with the Mexican government.

That's nothing. Facebook is letting you send preemptive nudes so they can block attempts to post those images.

Wow...that is pretty shameless lying, sufficient to coin a new word, "zuckerless," meaning "more shameless than shameless."

When Allison Mack was involved in something like that, she got arrested.

They've clearly decided to burn Zuckerberg for the failure of 2016. They clearly helped in our Lizard Memetics against Zuck, even to the point you see it trend on the image hosting sites a bit. In all his autistic glory, he's managed to piss off all of the factions. That's kind of impressive.

They might actually send the Anti-Trust department after them. That'll be fun.

Its a bit confusing, and hypocritical, of the EU to be grilling Zucker on the issue of censorship of political and other content.


After all, every EU country censors right wing or just pro-White political discourse with heavy handed tactics and censors internet access to 'badthink' sites.

Pot meet kettle.

Not really. This is wholly payback for failing. The Elites have clearly decided that Zuck is a liability. Expect Sheryl Sandberg to be the next CEO, then the entire thing crash & burn.

I saw a thing while walking in the Philly suburbs today -- a large 'Facebook' print ad in one of those glass bus-stop shelters.

I didn't think to take a picture of it, but the basic gist was that "unauthorized data use" is a very bad thing, and they're taking steps to prevent it, because Facebook is all about friends sharing their lameness with friends and family.

It's certainly not a platform for political organization and agitation; perish the thought!

They will intentionally conflate Neo-Nazi with Alt-Right and group me with White Supremacists.
Sounds like fun.

Zuckerless.

And everyone believing his garbage is being taken for a zucker.

Y'all are too mean to Unit Zuckerberg. It's not his fault he wasn't programmed to deal with this situation.

Blogger Welsh Woodsman May 22, 2018 11:29 PM  

@5
Well... it's the one and only way for all the incels who work there, to get a chick to send them nudes ?
To see what a group of low T fags were dealing with all you need to do is look at their fearless leader. The king of the shit pile and all he can pull is some short, fat, waifu. What a hopeless sad sack. All of his billions and stature and thats all the weirdo autist can pull. Bahhhahha

Right.

I have been inundated with ads for FB on other apps I use including a really stupid card game. FB looks desperate.

Facebook tracks your political ideology and even tells you about it on a hard to find option on your profile. Take a look for yourselves.

I don't much fancy the EU regulating FaceBook either.

"It's very important to me that we're a service that allows a wide variety of political discourse."

He's not lying. It's just that for liberals, a "wide variety of political discourse" runs the gamut from 'homophobes should be jailed' all the way to 'homophobes should be merely fired and registered in an offender database'.
