Seriously, did people learn nothing from Zuck taping over his laptop camera?

I have a sudden flags of inspiration, to sell semi translucent camera covers with a silhouette of the purchaser's choice. The factory default will be Ron Jeremy's face.

Facebook vs. Ken Paxton?  Kind of hard to believe or root for either side here.

Turn off your adblocker so we can tell you how bad Facebook is.

It's threads like these that make me regret not buying any Facebook stock.  Since nothing is going to happen, I should at least make a few bucks off of it.

Meh, Facebook users are, or should be, well aware of what's going on yet they still use it so I can only conclude they are fine with whatever steaming pile of dog sh*t Facebook chooses to pump down their throats.

Manfred J. Hattan: Facebook vs. Ken Paxton?  Kind of hard to believe or root for either side here.


This^

Its an election year stunt.

He's a Trumper running for reelection and he's about to be primaried out by a Bush.

Yes, ignore the fact that they have huge portfolios of personal information on US citizens that have NEVER set foot on Facebook, let alone ever had an account.

Prompting the question again: does FARK still allow Facebook hooks?

Yeah.  If you have a slow connection, you can see it.  I guess you could check somehow, but I've had slow internet before, and you can watch Facebook popping up multiple times on here before the page loads.

I agree with Ken Paxton. Am I going to die?

I'm waiting waiting for the class action suit so I can cash my check for 17cents.

Biting the hand that feeds.  And both have rabies.  And maybe dentures are involved.

The only social media I have left is instagram, because pictures of steak and ton80's are important. Thats all that goes on there.

Well, if we can't get our tax revenue the old-fashioned way, we'll just sue them.

Both Republicans and Democrats hate Facebook. Why can't they join forces and actually take it down?

Making money off of human suffering is certainly a choice.

He is likely going to handily beat the Bush in the primary, but there will be a runoff if he doesn't get 50%. Polling on Monday had Ole Crosseyes at 47% and Bush at 20%.
