So, as the majority of you actually taking the time to read my mindless drivel know, or are about to find out, I’m literally the worst when it comes to writing.
First of all, my mind is all over the place. Second of all, I love, just love, to procrastinate. I am pretty sure it’s actually my favorite pastime. I’m surprised that I get anything done at all.
I’m not even sure why I decided blogging was the best way to go when I decided to leave Facebook, but I had to leave. Perhaps I should have started a Tumblr account, but I thought blogging would give me the ultimate freedom to spew. So, here I am. Thanks for coming. Let’s hope it lasts.
Facebook is the devil. Although, I may have just insulted Satan by even saying that.
Let me list three of the top reasons why Facebook is evil.
- Although living in today’s world you just can’t share enough enough about yourself with absolute strangers, Facebook takes your sharing of information a step further. They bundle a dozen different data companies to target you. They are also buying your offline data and see a variety of things such as your income, the stores you frequent, and how many credit cards you have. What else is Facebook doing with your data? No one really seems to know.
- Facebook adjusts its algorithms showing you what THEY want you to see and trying to keep you happy so that you will spend all your time on Facebook. (Google does this as well.) But, the reality is this is just algorithmic censorship. The biggest example of this is when Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was shot and killed on Aug. 9, 2014, by Darren Wilson, a white police officer, in Ferguson, Missouri. But on Facebook, this incident was on the down low while all the rage was happening over the Ice Bucket Challenge. THIS WAS INTENTIONAL! And wrong on so many levels.
- Facebook IS Big Brother and one of the biggest censors on the internet. Sadly, Facebook is a place where you can post all the hate, spiteful posts and commentaries you want. You can be a cyber bully on Facebook. You can post threatening, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, gender-hate comments all day long, but a female nipple will get you thrown off in a bat of an eyelash.
Face it folks, Facebook is fucking you up the ass and you don’t even know how far up in ya they are. But they are there. Six ways from Sunday.
