Trouble in Fuckerberg's FaceBook Utopia.

" Co-founder of Facebook called for the government to break up the tech giant in an op-ed article Thursday in The New York Times.

“The Facebook that exists today is not the Facebook that we founded in 2004,” Chris Hughes, who started Facebook with Mark Zuckerberg in their Harvard dorm, told NBC News after the op-ed was published.

“And the one that we have today I think is far too big. It's far too powerful. And most importantly, its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, is not accountable,” Hughes said of his former business partner."

People are waking up.

1. Well, I understand that "the kids" don't use Facebook anymore

after they found out that mom and dad are on the platform. The "kids" (and I include 30-somethings) now obsess over Instagram (photos only, none of that annoying reading, you know). Facebook and Twitter are now for "old people". I don't know about Reddit and the dozen or so other "platforms". Don't care, personally, I have never had a "social media presence" myself.

2. Fuckerberg also owns Instagram.

His organization is a gigantic " 1984" data mine.

3. Indeed.

Once the "old people" start using it, the "Master" will invent another so the "kids" will have another choice to willingly give up their data.

4. Through FB I reconnected with many of my British friends from the 60's and early 70's.

(We all turned out okay). I'd love to drop FB but it's hard now I'm back with my old gang.

5. Yeah, that is one reason "the kids" are abandoning Facebook.

They don't want their parents using the same platform.
Anything their parents use MUST be totally OVER!!
They think "adults" are doing it wrong.

7. The way things are going these days

if you DON'T have a FB page (or SOME social media), you will not be able to access society.
Locally, our Emergency Management Agency sends out tweets about dangerous weather.
That's it!
Tweets only!
Oh, the TV and radio stations give warnings, but not EMA.
Without a twitter presence, you are left out.
Weird.
