https://www.yahoo.com/news/body-parts-threatened-wildlife-widely-sold-facebook-234807698–politics.html Facebook is a bizarre for selling threatened and endangered dead wildlife.
http://money.cnn.com/2018/04/09/technology/fake-black-lives-matter-facebook-page/index.html Most of Facebook is Fakebook. I’ve covered similar fake Twitter accounts before. Social media is big alligator infested swamp with lots of poo.
“We are not sweeping up data. People are inputting data. People are sharing data with Facebook,” she said. You mean like our Android telephone and text message metadata? Everyone knew they were just giving this to Facebook?

Facebook scans all your messages for proper “public opinion orientation” Imagine if the post office opened all your mail or the phone company listened to all your conversations to ensure you did not use banned words or subjects they did not approve of.

They control what you see and what you may send; they monitor, record and analyze everything.
TV and radio stations, newspapers and magazines pay for their content for the purpose of providing eye balls to advertisers. YouTube shares ad revenue with qualified content producers. Facebook sells user created content it steals for free, gives them nothing. Sheryl Sandberg thinks users should pay Facebook. Sheryl Sandberg is an idiot. Zuckerberg is worth $62 billion because he stole personal property and sold it to others. He’s little different than 19th century “robber barons” http://fortune.com/2018/04/07/sheryl-sandberg-says-facebook-users-would-have-to-pay-for-total-privacy/
