This article is a little out of date, in that we now know that P&G has dropped Facebook too. So now we know what it takes to get Zuck's attention. He is desperately holding on to the belief that he doesn't have to police user speech, but that stance is now farking with the money. You don't fark with the money.

I'm suspicious of the advertising value of platforms in which most of the content is bots repeating contents from bots and most of the consumers are old people.

Fireproof: Rapmaster2000: I'm suspicious of the advertising value of platforms in which most of the content is bots repeating contents from bots and most of the consumers are old people.

That said, considering how virtually every ad I see anywhere is about how to get rid of sagging skin, how someone that totally lives in my town won a slot machine using an app, or how the warning signs of dementia, I have to wonder how much of the Internet is aimed at old people nowadays.

/It's probably that they're the only ones unsavvy enough to click anymore


Or that the ad networks track everything you do online and present ads based on keywords and demographics that fit their profile for you.
