Who friggin cares?

What a waste of life...

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

People who are spending money on Facebook probably care

This sounds very, very fishy if true.

allegory - ˈalɪg(ə)ri/ - noun - 1. a story, poem, or picture which can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one.

Why is it fishy? They're a company seeking to maximize profits

What else would you expect? How much money do you think they are making off of selling intel?

Exactly.

Exactly. Now I can see why a clever guy who works in the same company as I do recommended we keep staying away from the Fakebook, not putting a dime in it.

And that was almost 2 years ago.

He must have done some homework of his own, back then.

Low cost click farms

No wonder why the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, is so passionate about immigration. With immigration reform, he can build low cost click farms here in the US.

What a fraud.

It the same thing that bothered me about the Coke Superbowl commercial. Both Facebook and Coke are so disingenuousness about the issue of immigration. Coke and Mark Zuckerberg sing the praises of diversity and immigration yet they profit directly from it.

But, consider that the labor participation rate in the US is at decades lows, technology and globalization continue to replace American jobs, and financial corruption has wiped out the retirement savings of many seniors who are now forced back into the workforce. Youth unemployment is an American crisis. Unemployment for 15- to 24-year-olds is nearly 16 percent. Wage growth is non-existent. The wages of American workers are under assault and many are becoming poorer.

To me, this is not about the virtues of immigration as Mark Zuckerberg and Coke claim. Rather, their support of immigration about reducing labor costs for the benefit of their corporations. They each smack of self interest cleverly veiled behind humanitarianism, patriotism and the virtues of immigration.

From the video - The US State Dept paid $630,000 to acquire

2 million fans whose 'engagement' was 2%.

I shared this on Facebook

To see what happens:-)

Might get negative likes.

Whoa!

I've noticed that the DP's facebook page only reaches a fraction of the subscribers. I thought that was just because Ron Paul is old news now, but someone told me that Facebook has changed its linking algorithm (some of which is described in this video), so you now have to pay to reach your own supporters / likers / community on FB.

Imagine that.

NOT TO MENTION, on at least two occasions, I have found fraudulent FB charges on my credit card statement, for advertising!

I don't know if my data got stolen, or HOW FB got my cc information, because I've never spent to advertise on FB.

Anyway - always check those credit card statements! You never know what is going to show up there!

wait O.O!

FB just managed to accidentally acquire your CC number?
For your anti establishment face book page?
Then accidentally charge you......twice?
O.o?
It would require more than a full frontal lobotomy for me to believe face book.
