The number of angry posts about Facebook and Zuckerberg that I've seen on Facebook in the last few days is astonishing. If you hate the guy so much, stop putting dollars in his pocket.

I know some that have deleted their facebook Most don't seem to know the difference between delete and deactivate. Delete = "We will get around to deleting your information eventually -- We Promise!!!" Deactive = " You only have three years to come back before we start deleting your information."

Of course what they really mean is that even if you have never ever signed up for a Facebook account you still have a Facebook Profile an average of 1,500 datapoints per NON-User (29,000 per signed up user):

"WATCH: Congressman Reveals How Many Data Points Facebook Has On You"



And I wonder if anyone ever considered that Facebook is the mark of the beast?

Yes they have and I am starting to be incline to believe them:

I was Zuckerberg’s speechwriter. “Companies over countries” was his early motto.

This guy (From my home state) knew what he was talking about and really shook up Zuckerberg



The conclusion I have come to from this and other things is that Silicon Valley companies are all about making as much money as they can possibly imagine and then some. Without any regard for anyone else.

Then it's no wonder members of Congress hate the competition.

Yes indeed. REcently I saw a Mark Zuckerberg quoted motto of year gone by that went something like "Companies over countries" Watching the Zuckerberg hearing I was wndering how many of those members of congress had hear of that motto?
