Mark Zuckerberg wants everyone to think App Tracking Transparency is to blame for Facebook's struggles


Yes, it's certainly not because it's decayed into a cesspool of radicalized geriatrics, literal Nazis, lethal medical disinformation and nightmare-grade privacy intrusion.

Go grease up your face and surf into hell, Zuck, you lying piece of shiat.

"Facebook is a mature app that is facing increasing difficulty attracting younger users. Sure, it's a great place for grandma to get radicalized so she can protest the space aliens that animal shelter volunteers are harboring in the basement of a local bagel shop, but how can we get kids into dangerous whack-a-doodle conspiracy theories?"

So true.

Teenagers were calling it "Mombook" back in 2015 so I'm sure it's only declined even more since then.

Macworld taking a surprisingly strong pro-Apple stance in this dispute.

I guess this is part of what explains all the "Meta" TV spots I've been hurriedly clicking away from.

We're not gonna start calling it "Meta," assholes.

So what's actually safer re: privacy/tracking?  The app or mobile browser version?

Sure, you could have improved on that headline:

Facebook is lying

Ah, yes, schadenfreude as Facebook loses users to Tik Tok.  Let's celebrate as users leave an evil company who cares only about money, as they instead use products from a company with close ties to an evil government who cares only about increasing its hold on global power.

Such a good trade-off!

To The Escape Zeppelin!: Teenagers were calling it "Mombook" back in 2015 so I'm sure it's only declined even more since then.


Yet they still pretend they have 2.5 BILLION users (even though only about 4 billion people actually even have access to the internet)

Next time the economy crashes, it won't be because of Failbook's lack of ability to spy on certain people.

No matter what The Zuckerbot says.

The facebook sucks.
But somehow I don't really give much weight to Macworld's version of an apple fight.
