From the No D’uh Files:
“Billionaire George Soros said that nothing is keeping Facebook Inc. from spreading disinformation and the company may be in cahoots with President Donald Trump to get him re-elected.
“‘I think there is a kind of informal mutual assistance operation or agreement developing between Trump and Facebook,’ Soros, 89, said Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. ‘Facebook will work together to re-elect Trump, and Trump will work to protect Facebook so that this situation cannot be changed and it makes me very concerned about the outcome for 2020.’”
It doesn’t matter whether or not it is an official, signed deal between Comrades Trump and Faceberg, but that seems like the calculus to everyone who is paying attention.
Facebook is not a good corporate citizen, and in fact it might be the ultimate useful idiot for Russia. I cannot say this often enough: delete your accounts. There is nothing good going on there.
Meanwhile, CNBC has a cut-out-and-keep article on how to prevent Facebook (and Google) from recognizing your face. And yes, we’ve come to that point: they are harvesting not just your data, they are harvesting you.
