Zuck sucks, but I support his right to own a terrible social media platform, and for people to make bad decisions on it.

Shapiro was commenting today that Facebook is increasingly meeting the definition of a journalistic company. A business cannot be held legally liable if they simply allow transmittal of libal, copyrighted works, etc, over their communication medium, but if they apply algorithms that shape the content that is viewed, they approach something more akin to a news outlet, which is responsible for the content they distribute.

All that said, I have had a Facepalm account since the days where you could only "friend" people that go to the same school as you. I was first spooked by Facebook when one day while playing Pandora, it said that one of my friends liked the same song that I was listening to. I had never explicitly given Facepalm or Pandora permission to commingle.

I've also never "liked" anything. I knew its purpose was no good, especially if there is no "dislike" button.

My neighbor had seen the first one, his response was 'meh'. Me? My schadenfreude is tingling.

It seems things are progressing well. The mainstream media are starting feel the Coriolus effect

Thanks are better than Likes.

I think it is a little better now that they allow for other responses than likes, but still, people post bad news, and people like it. My sister hits the rainbow button. I am not sure I want to know what that means.

As an adult I feel obligated to use my words. If, for example, the mother of a friend dies, I am not going to hit a button, I am going to message them and ask if I can help.

However, I am glad we have the Thanks button. It is kind of weird when someone responds "Thanks" and that is it. I understand when people reply "There is a button for that."

If you get the Unicorn drunk first does that mean you get s***-faced afterwards.
What I don't like about Face Zuck are the ads that have nothing to do with any of my internet activities but merely my conversations that I have on my telephone. Even spookier are the conversations I get ads for to which I'm not on the phone. You think this practice is restricted to mr. Zuckerberg you are sorely mistaken Google is also very actively participating in this pretty much Facebook and Google sync up as to who they're advertising based on conversations in person on the phone or on the Internet
