is Facebook bad?

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Whatssapp, Instagram and Facebook messenger are going to be integrated as one - so I guess it's back to SMS texting, because there's no way you'll convince all your friends to switch to Telegram.
https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/jan/25/facebook-integrate-instagram-messenger-whatsapp-messaging-platforms

Facebook is reportedly considering a merger of its three messaging platforms – WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger – allowing users to send messages between the networks for the first time.

The plans are said to come directly from the Facebook chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, the New York Times has reported, and would involve rewriting the basic software of the three apps to ensure they were interoperable. A WhatsApp user would be able to, for instance, text an Instagram user for the first time without needing to switch applications.

is there any more obvious example of a company living off monopoly rents and creating zero benefit to users outside of paying minimal operating costs?

Making $15 an hour watching an endless stream of conspiracy videos and footage of people getting murdered and having only one part time counselor on site to talk to and 9 minutes of "wellness time" per day. Capitalism rocks!

Despite the high degree of difficulty in applying such a policy, Facebook has instructed Cognizant and its other contractors to emphasize a metric called “accuracy” over all else. Accuracy, in this case, means that when Facebook audits a subset of contractors’ decisions, its full-time employees agree with the contractors. The company has set an accuracy target of 95 percent, a number that always seems just out of reach. Cognizant has never hit the target for a sustained period of time — it usually floats in the high 80s or low 90s, and was hovering around 92 at press time.

Miguel diligently applies the policy — even though, he tells me, it often makes no sense to him.

A post calling someone “my favorite n-----” is allowed to stay up, because under the policy it is considered “explicitly positive content.”

“Autistic people should be sterilized” seems offensive to him, but it stays up as well. Autism is not a “protected characteristic” the way race and gender are, and so it doesn’t violate the policy. (“Men should be sterilized” would be taken down.)

This fucking company man.

You use location-based services and more than likely allowed the FB app to access your data

If you want privacy, you have to shed your smart phone and cancel your internet services

I kind of like Instagram because it’s mostly contentless style shots and I don’t feel pressure to follow anyone I know IRL
