    Default Mark Zuckerberg (and Facebook) is pissing off a lot of people

    http://nypost.com/2017/01/11/mark-zu...lot-of-people/

    Mark Zuckerberg will be grappling with a growing problem in 2017: Facebook hate.

    The social-networking giant has landed on a list of “America’s Most Hated Companies,” with users hacked off over its handling of everything from fake news to privacy concerns.

    “Facebook has been a boon for shareholders, financial news blog 24/7 Wall St. noted as it published its ignominious list. “However, not everyone is pleased with the social media platform.”

    Facebook’s name ended up in sixth place behind Comcast, Bank of America, Mylan, McDonald’s and Wells Fargo.

    Trailing Facebook on the miserable list of 12 were the slightly less-hated Spirit Airlines, Dish Network, Sears, Sprint, Walmart and Charter Communications.

    “In recent years, [Facebook] has drawn significant criticism over its privacy policies and the mass data collection of its users,” 24/7 Wall St. said.

    “According the company’s statements, Facebook collects data on nearly anything it can, including who its users communicate with, users’ financial transactions, and the types of devices users are connecting with.”

    More recently, Facebook has faced “sharp criticism for not doing enough to curb the spread of fake news leading up to the US presidential election,” the blog said.

    Zuckerberg — who, according to recent disclosures has harbored aspirations for public service — was forced to react to complaints over fake news after initially dismissing them as “crazy.”

    His decision to hire left-leaning sites to do the job, however, has drawn the ire of conservatives.

    To be fair, there is no news in MSM about them having any kind of finanacial involvement with any secretive agency as WaPo does. They highly respect privacy of their users.

    A few months ago they started putting stuff in people's feeds that they had no business seeing. So when someone I know tenuously likes someone's post where they dump their purse on the table about her husband having stage 4 cancer, I get to see it.

    Facebook does $#@! like this regularly, and then when people get righfully pissed, they create dozens of carefully hidden privacy controls and make you go set them if you don't want complete strangers getting your life story.

    There is a reason why I have never been on FB. My 8yo nonverbal daughter is, and boy is she a radical.
    There are no crimes against people.
    There are only crimes against the state.
    And the state will never, ever choose to hold accountable its agents, because a thing can not commit a crime against itself.
