To be fair, someone who came on to try to figure out how to give folks Farm Sims and goofy photo filters is probably a bit lower on the scale of Ebbil, but the signs have been sort of building for years now that the data miner that IS Facebook has been leaning that way for a bit now.

Zuckerberg is a robber baron. He will do whatever he thinks necessary to make more money and have more power. He'll be an "ass-sucker" to whoever has power to achieve those ends.

You know, I think I have some scrap brass in the garage.  I'm thinking of sending it to Zuck so he can have it melted down and make himself some balls.

Nobody's forcing them to work there.  If they morally disagree with the work they're doing then they should do other work or stop pretending to have morals.  They can't have it both ways.

The problem is that not having morals is lucrative.
 
2020-05-30 9:54:18 AM  
Yes, yes you will  be judged harshly. But what really matters is that Zuckerberg has grown to love the feeling of farting thru pure silk. And nothing or no one will take his right to fart thru pure silk away. Understand? Good. Glad I could help clear that up for you.

Ass sucking isn't the safest practice during a pandemic. So it should surprise no one, that he Zuckerberg cought Covid and died.

Facebook doesn't care that it's a safe haven for hate and extremism. They know grandma and grandpa won't unsubscribe.

Pretty sure that ship has sailed.

Zuckerberg kind of makes you pine for the days when folks with his "condition" were just sent away to an institution and forgotten about.

It's funny, because I'm typing this while binging "Devs", and I thought "yeah, it didn't take long to mae Tech Company execs the new bag guys".

And deservedly so.

It's a BBS. It even has door games. And anyone that dealt with old BBSes in dial up days knows they were always suspect. Games? Sure. Chats? OK. News!? Lol no.

He doesn't give a shiat about you or any of facebook's users. He only cares about growth and staying un-regulated. That means staying out of the way of governments, especially authoritarian ones.
People don't matter; governments do. It's easy math.

History gave up giving a shiat sometime during the GWB administration.

As I understand it, Facebook began as a program that allowed students at Harvard to rate the 'hotness' of other students at Harvard, following in the venerated footsteps of Hugh Hefner, who, in 1979, published an issue of Playboy titled Girls Women of the Ivy League Revealed. Armed with this juvenile and misogynistic mentality a young prodigy named Mark Zuckerburg dropped out of college and proceeded to create one of the world's largest data mining businesses. Guided by his clear vision and questionable morality Zuckerburg has amassed information about not only Facebook's users, but about people who just happen to know Facebook users, and used this data to capture advertising revenue.
While Zuckerburg and his company get rich his "social networking platform" has served to facilitate genocide in Mayanmar, helped political bad-actors to influence elections, and enabled stalkers and sexual predators, just to mention a few of the undesirable uses Facebook has been put to.
I'm surprised to learn that there are employees at Facebook who have found time between riding their scooters, playing ping-pong in the lounge and adjusting their standing desks to notice President Trump*'s behavior. They certainly didn't notice when Cambridge Analytica was scraping their data for illicit purposes. I see that they are looking for guidance from the higher-ups in the company. Guidance from Mark Zuckerburg, of all people.

If you're still working for Facebook after they help enable a genocide in 2016, you're a farking monster no matter how tightly you clutch your pearls.

eiger: Zuckerberg is a robber baron. He will do whatever he thinks necessary to make more money and have more power.


Someone posted a "conspiracy theory" about Facebook. That there is a huge amount of illegal drug trade going on through some of it's pages, which Facebook have decided to turn a blind eye to. As well as the adverts targeting white supremacists.

Because of that trade, the Republicans know that they can make a huge amount of problems for Facebook, if Facebook ever tries to stop being evil. And that's the reason why Zuckerberg is trying to stay balanced on the knife edge.

Trump Facebook posts make Facebook money. Why would they cut off revenue streams? These companies don't give a fark about anybody but themselves. Why are all of you shocked?

One thing to add, that I think is notable. He did that first bit without consent or even knowledge of the University that held that information for an expressly different purpose, or the women he objectified.

Facebook should change its name to StormFaceFrontBook. It's become a dumping ground for the alt-right and neo-Nazi movement, and if Zuckerberg can't be bothered to at least pretend to be disgusted by that, he should just go all-in and openly tell these piles of human detritus to use his site as a recruitment tool. Maybe in the 2000s, Facebook was fun and cutesy and whatnot, but now it's become one of the most dangerous sites on the Internet, and he just doesn't give a shiat.

If that's their position then fine but they shouldn't be too surprised when people post about Mark Zuckerberg being a sodomizing pedophile and make similar attacks aimed at other company officials. If Trump making baseless accusations accusing Joe Scarborough of murder are ok then so are posts questioning the consensual sexual relationship between Monika Bickert and her parents and siblings, or Jack Dorsey engaging in bestiality.

PanicAttack: If you're still working for Facebook after they help enable a genocide in 2016, you're a farking monster no matter how tightly you clutch your pearls.


After they did that, the company marched them into rooms with lawyers to explain their choices. Some left, many stayed. Anyone that still works there chose money over society.

The funny thing is that the money isn't all that good compared to other techs, but I guess it is a bird in the hand type thing. I haven't met anyone who has bragged about working for facebook since 2016. The people that still work there know exactly what they are and what they are enabling.

Coolstorybro comment: I remember they put on a hackathon at a local university a few years ago. The employees seemed more pissed off about apple removing the headphone jack than anything else, including running their farking hackathon. They literally complained about it every single time they had the podium. They were the rudest, shiattiest, people we had for a hackathon and that is saying a lot because Cisco followed that group a few weeks later.

You forget this is classic oligarchy BS. He said the platform should not. He said nothing about not using your vast resources to pursue liable lawsuits to curtail messages you do not like....

It's about prevent others from having control not the absence of control...

It's weird how Mark Zuckerberg ate his own mother and regularly gets pegged by Mike Pence, and manages to run an international fentanyl smuggling empire in coordination with the Catholic Church, yet all we ever hear about is his being a pedophile.

Look, I get it, you think your comment is funny. Imagine that joke told every single time someone was at the podium to update scores, announce lunch, talk about the company, aware prizes. 6 freaking hours 1 joke.

I literally thought it was a super troopers meow type thing.
