  1. Anyone else a little curious about how much Facebook drama is in the news since the Pandora papers released. Look over here at this evil behemoth, not the illegal tax havens destroying the world.

  2. I don’t know what good talking to the senate does.

    [Praphrasing here but:]

    >**Senator:** *Tell me what you are doing to stop “Finsta Accounts?” And everyone take note: I said something ‘all the kids say’ so clearly I know what I’m talking about.*

    >**Facebook Rep:** *umm.. that’s Instagram, not Facebook. And it’s literally when someone creates a second account and is more selective about who it links with. I’m not sure what your trying to ask or what your expectation here is?*

    >**Senator:** *Let the record show they refuse to answer my question. All you parents, afraid of the internet, who can’t police your kids should vote for me! Your champion. *

    Like fuck the fucking government for making me even remotely defend Facebook… but it’s literally like aliens vs Predator up in here. No matter what the public is fucked.

  3. Facebook is a monster because Zuckerberg is rotten to his core:

    **Zuckerberg in the early days**

    Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard

    Zuck: Just ask.

    Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS

    [Redacted Friend’s Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?

    Zuck: People just submitted it.

    Zuck: I don’t know why.

    Zuck: They “trust me”

    Zuck: Dumb f***s.

    His core personality is still the same. Guaranteed.

  4. The issue is the “whistle-blower” was just upset they aren’t censoring enough. I didn’t hear anything really whistle-blower material, it was mainly about how they favor engagement over all else, which we already knew.

  5. Nothing will ever happen with Facebook. Your only option is deletion or live with it. Would people stop hoping someone else fixes it and just give up the addiction and stop using it.

    Just stop relying on this government to do anything to stop big businesses.

  6. About time for some of these developers to open up– BUT, you just have to hope that IF the government ever does anything about this, the people up top are actually held responsible.

    I’m so tired of how every time Congress wants to pretend they’re cracking down on companies who avoid regulations and harm the American people, they just wind up bailing out the executives and letting the people who actually need help fall by the wayside.

  7. From the article: Sophie Zhang, a former Facebook data scientist who went public with her criticisms of the company in September 2020, has told CNN she is willing to testify before Congress.

    Zhang also said on Twitter on Sunday that she had provided a US law enforcement agency with “detailed documentation regarding potential criminal violations.”

    When asked by CNN, Zhang did not say which agency she gave documents to. An FBI spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by CNN.

    “If Congress wishes for me to testify, I will fulfill my civic duty, as I’ve publicly stated for the past half year,” Zhang said in a tweet Monday that linked to her CNN interview.
