Can't get no antidote?

Wait until the Right sees how much of their news is suppressed on social media. It will upset them that most of their news is untrue and should be mitigated.

Looks like California is going to have a data privacy initiative on the November ballot. It would require companies like Facebook and Google to disclose what data they collect and would let users prevent its sale. Naturally the effected companies are fighting it like it's a dagger aimed at the heart of their business model, which it is.

TFA starts off by making it a politicized issue, "the left thinks this, the right thinks that"

Can we not talk about Facebook and its problematic, questionable practices without being partisan?

I keep Facebook so far away from me.

"The media" is biased against "conservative" thoughts and opinions-they're biased against losing money. They know what brings in the clicks and eyeballs, and it is pretty much everything that conservatives hate: Hollywood, progressive cultural and social norms, topics that appeal to younger folks and minorities, and so on. That's why the lifeblood of the RW and evangelical echo chambers is grift, because advertising for boner pills, doomsday slop, and term life insurance doesn't buy Gulf Streams.

Umm, no. Cognitive thought is not their thing.
The Right believes what they want to believe. If presented with conflicting data they simply deny it, get angry, and go stroke their guns..

You are right!

No, no, I meant right in the correct sense!

I'm trying out Vero. They say they're eventually going to charge (and not sell your info), but if you get in on the beta it will always be free. It's pretty but still needs some work. My biggest gripe is you currently have to post at least a pic. You can't just have a straight text post. There's also no one on it besides some celebrities and artists they've managed to nab.

I thought that was odd too. I haven't noticed any cheerleading from "the left" that Zuckerberg "escaped" from Congress without punishment. If anything, intelligent people on "the left" are pissed at FB for selling out the country to the Russians.

I'm a proud Hillary voter and would love to see FB's privacy practices regulated better.

We can't. Any privacy concerns are due to paranoid, covetous, superstitious greedhead Conservatives.

Facebook needs to be burned down to the waterline.
