#DeleteFacebook, I guess. (Not that Twitter is a paragon of responsibility, itself.)
We've seen entities "too big to fail." What if FB is "too hard to leave?" I have friends that really want to do the same but feel trapped, with FB being the prominent mode of communication/connection they have with people.
Email is too formal, not everybody texts (thinking of my mother, for example), Twitter is too ephemeral for many, other platforms are too big of an ask to move to en masse, and people have a lot of history, memories, etc on FB they'd "lose."

Elizabeth Warren, la candidata demócrata a la presidencia de Estados Unidos, es ahora mismo la mayor amenaza para Facebook.

Y cada día que pasa lo confirma más: su última acción ha sido probar como la red social permite a los políticos mentir abiertamente en la plataforma.

1/
Warren y su equipo subieron a Facebook un anuncio de campaña en el que anunciaban que Mark Zuckerberg apoyaba la candidatura de Trump. El anuncio ha pasado todos los controles de Facebook, a pesar de que es una mentira flagrante.

2/
De esta manera Warren denuncia que Facebook permite a los políticos mentir abiertamente mientras paguen anuncios en la plataforma, algo que el propio jefe de comunicación de la red social, Nick Clegg, reconoció hace unas semanas.

if you're like me and you need @Facebook for work or specific communications, but you hate the platform, its shitty founder , and everything it stands for, try deleting the app from your phone and making a personal commitment to NEVER post content there. #DeleteFacebook
@facebook I promise you, when you no longer have Facebook in your pocket and need to log in via a browser on your computer and you're not making posts people engage with, you'll quickly see what a useless platform it is and you'll completely lose the urge to check it all. #DeleteFacebook
@facebook There was a time when doing progressive political outreach for @facebook (as I did at Medium) would have been a dream gig for me. Now the thought of giving such a hateful, dangerous platform any free content at all makes me want to vomit. #DeleteFacebook

Dear @facebook

You aided & abetted Cambridge Analytica & Russia to favor Trump in 2016.

It didn’t matter to you that a tyrant was installed, not fairly elected due in large part to your platform—all for profit.

You’re clearly favoring him again for 2020.

#DeleteFacebook
2/5

Cambridge Analytica harvested data on 50 Million people & had data on 230 Million more from @facebook

C-A, now Emerdata, is owned by Mercer & was run by Steve Bannon who compiled & used this data to sway the outcome of 2016 elections to favor Trump.

Christopher Wylie blew the whistle on @facebook allowing the harvesting 230M user’s data to C-A, who then used the data to target & sway American voters.

FB deleted his account.

C-A/Emerdata’s entire endgame is to infiltrate & sway elections; Globally

'Drowning in his lies,' Trump lashes out on Wed.

“Just to be clear, Trump is currently, this morning, calling on foreign leaders to investigate Biden in the midst of an impeachment proceeding about whether he has encouraged foreign leaders to investigate Biden”
🔥Meltdown3🔥

Don’t forget:

Trump told RU FM Sergey Lavrov & then–RU Amb Sergey Kislyak that Trump was unconcerned about Moscow’s attack on the 2016 presidential elex.

Trump noted the RU that their assault on the US electorate was no big deal & by the way can you do again?

So, I'm reading Seth Abramson's Proof of Conspiracy, which was released today, and I figured I'd share some of my stream of consciousness thoughts.. I'm up to Chapter 3, "The Young Prince, Israeli Spies, the NRA Junket, and the Flynn Intel Group."
p. 85: "Trump's data firm, Cambridge Analytica, places itself at the center of a UAE-Israeli election meddling scandal with Russian connections." This should be good.
By the way, this chapter is 84 pages, as long as the rest of the book so far combined. I'm not going to complete it tonight, but let's see if I can do 20 or 30.

"My son died here", said the father of one of Facebook's content moderators. What an absolutely deplorable working environment 😞 theverge.com/2019/6/19/1868…
Maybe time to admit that the mission of "connecting the world" has been an abject failure. That the world is worse off from being connected in the ways Facebook has done it.
Facebook pays moderators $28,800/year to be exposed to the most vile content in the world. Content Facebook's fundamental model is the distributor of. It's beyond broken.

Nick Clegg is a disgusting Neoliberal Globalist Fascist shill who wants to #Censor the Truth and Enslave Humanity to the Bankers.

This disgusting piece of Human Garbage should never be given a platform to spew his Elite Corporatist poison

#FaceBook = #Censorship
#DeleteFacebook
The agenda of the Neoliberal Globalists, like Nick Clegg and Mark Zuckerberg, is to transfer ALL power & wealth from ordinary people to an anti democratic cabal of bankers, Oligarchs & CEOs

“Let’s be real. We have a grandpa-grandma Congress that is unable to understand the apps that shape the modern world.”

That and other thoughts on Facebook and privacy live on @NPR's @MorningEdition now, and available at this link: npr.org/2018/12/20/678…
@NPR @MorningEdition We also talked about the cultural tendency nowadays to recast plutocratic predation as issues of personal responsibility for victims.

“When you #DeleteFacebook as an individual, you are personalizing what is, in fact, an issue of systems and the abuse of power."
Me: Facebook is a predatory monopoly.

@NoelKing: “The question of whether or not Facebook is a monopoly — you could put two economists into a room and get a fistfight.”

Me: “It might be a weak fistfight.”

Yeah, deleting Facebook is cool, but have you ever tried regulating it?
I admire the #DeleteFacebook impulse. But it takes so much coordination and scale to work, and most users are not American. And it also owns WhatsApp and Instagram.

It’s too much to take on as consumers.

This is why we have governments.
Trying to fight a predatory, politically connected monopoly through heroic personal responsibility doesn't work.

You can't fight the sugar companies just by dieting harder.

You can't fight Amazon just by buying a few books locally.

System problems must be solved systemically.

@Facebook “used us for crisis PR...They are more interested in making themselves look good & passing the buck…I strongly believe that they are spreading fake news on behalf of hostile foreign powers and authoritarian governments.” ~@brooklynmarie

HT @ChiefCovfefe
Facebook was pushing reporters to prioritize debunking misinformation that *affected Facebook advertisers*, which @brooklynmarie thought crossed a line: “You’re not doing journalism anymore. You’re doing #propaganda.”🤬

Another fact-checker who has long worked on the #Facebook partnership said they were demoralized, saying that #Facebook is “a terrible company and, on a personal level, I don’t want to have anything to do with them.”🔥
