    I personally have a dummy FB. just so I can log on.
    my twins have a P.G. account. meaning Rikki and I can deactivate or edit them as we see fit. (we have done so.)
    my 11 year old son does not have one.
    nor will he until he is 13. Face book messenger is very bad news.
    Kate got a message from a sexual predator. this was reported to the police. Face book is a great platform.
    but far from safe.

    I think facebook sucks, Over the years for me, It's developed into a page where all the people I know like friends and family are. I've got to be fair, I can't go on to facebook and be ShadowProphet, No, All my friends and all my family are there, To everyone on FB, I'm just Darren Bray, The guy who they all know everything about down to the last flaw.

    Can I approach someone on Facebook with a scientific theory I have been working on? No, Because they all remember when I was seven and got covered in leeches that time I swam in the neighbor's pond...

    Facebook is a strange concept, They take everything about a person that motivates them to move out on their own and create their own lives, And they force-feed that environment to you, And People somehow, like that? Sigh....

    I love my family and friends don't get me wrong, But a great portion of the reason I moved out on my own was to get the fuck away from those people. :/

    I may be cynical But I own up to it :/

    Facebook’s ‘Fake News’ Crusade is a Fraud: Now Partners in Propaganda with U.S. Government

    [​IMG]

    They tell us we’re facing a ‘crisis of democracy’ and that it’s all to do with plague of fake news.There is a crisis, but it’s not ‘fake news’ – it’s a crisis of authoritarianism. If left unchecked, it will introduce some disturbing implications for western democracies, but also for humanity in general, because when Silicon Valley firms impose their rigid regimes of censorship, it’s not only content for the American market which is being ‘disappeared’ – it’s being wiped globally.

    This is a level of control and corruption which the world has never experienced before. Corporate technocrats and their automated algorithms are making arbitrary decisions which dictate which pieces of communication or user accounts are allowed to exist, and which of ones cannot.Invisible technocrats curating your news feeds, and deleting accounts on a whim, or worse – deleting them at the direction of governments. This is Kafka going global.

    Hackers stole details of 29 million users in Facebook breach
    "On Friday, the company revealed that stolen data on 14 million users included birth dates, employers, education and lists of friends. For 15 million users, it was restricted to just name and contact details.

    "All of those could help a fraudster pose as Facebook, the employer or a friend. They could then craft a more sophisticated email aimed at tricking users into providing login information on a fake page or into clicking on an attachment that would infect their computers."

    This seems rather suspicious, no?
    The FBI Doesn’t Want Users To Know Who Hacked Facebook

    'Hackers took advantage of an intersection of three different and distinct bugs in Facebook’s website to gain “access tokens” to users’ accounts, according to Guy Rosen, the vice president of product management at Facebook.

    “We’re cooperating with the FBI, which is actively investigating and asked us not to discuss who may be behind this attack,” Rosen wrote in a post entitled “An Update on the Security Issue.”"

    Fake News Media Archives - Big League Politics

    Facebook has thus far not commented to Big League Politics regarding the assistance they provided Daily Beast journalist and former convicted hacker Kevin Poulsen in doxxing the formerly private citizen who shared the viral meme of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appearing to speak even less clearly than usual.

    Poulsen bragged about receiving private information directly from Facebook about Shawn Brooks, the man who uploaded the viral video of Pelosi that was slightly edited to make her appear less coherent than usual from big tech platform Facebook in his hit piece.

    But a Facebook official, confirming a Daily Beast investigation, said the video was first posted on Politics WatchDog directly from Brooks’ personal Facebook account.

    From this it is unclear exactly how much information Facebook provided about Brooks, but it appears Facebook may have completely outed Brooks’ identity.

    Facebook has a history of compromising user data through leaks and accidental overreaches of third party application developers, but this may represent the first time Facebook has ever willingly turned over user data.

    It is not entirely clear whether Facebook furnished Poulsen, a former black hat hacker who fled charges after he “was indicted on 19 counts of conspiracy, fraud, wiretapping and money laundering,” with the information regarding his identity, and thus far Facebook has declined to provide comment to Big League Politics.

    In Poulsen’s article, he writes that “According to the [Facebook] official, there were indeed six other accounts registered alongside Brooks as page administrators,” and goes on to say that “the company determined last week that all six of them were controlled by Brooks.”

    This would appear to suggest Facebook provided a great deal of information to Poulsen that he would otherwise have had little access to.

    In Poulsen’s previous life as a hacker, he was accused of compromising the systems of a popular radio station, stealing private communications from a Hollywood actress, conspiring to steal United States military intelligence, and cracking the systems of the FBI and United States Army. He eventually was caught, and convicted on several of the these crimes. Poulsen served five years in prison and several more on probation. Poulsen was not allowed access to the Internet until his probation officer relented in 2004.

    This event is eerily similar to a previous incident in 2017, when CNN threatened to dox a Twitter user who uploaded a video of President Donald Trump body slamming CNN. This may represent a new pattern of the media declaring war against private citizens who create content not approved by the fake news media.

    Facebook lawyer says 'there is no privacy,' hinting at the challenges of Zuckerberg's pivot

    A lawyer for Facebook argued on Wednesday that its users had no expectation of privacy when using the social network, pushing for a judge to throw out a class-action lawsuit related to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

    “There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy,” on Facebook or any other social media site, company attorney Orin Snyder told U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria.
