I keep wondering when FB will TOP out.

I also think America is waking up on the gun thing – if all the big corps turned their back on the NRA , shit might happen.

The #1 reason Facebook won’t ever change – Om Malik

The #1 reason Facebook won’t ever change – Om Malik:

Facebook is about making money by keeping us addicted to Facebook. It always has been — and that’s why all of our angst and headlines are not going to change a damn thing.

Yup. Delete the app and use the web version as needed. 

People ping me on FB messenger but I don’t have notifications on – so I see them when I see them.

WhatsApp is so entrenched in people – I have to use it but I don’t want to. 

Instagram – got rid of the app ions ago.

Spend less time on FB properties folks – you will feel better, I promise.

Google’s nemesis: meet the British couple who took on a giant, won… and cost it £2.1 billion | WIRED UK:

But the British couple didn’t celebrate. That’s not their way. “If you embark on something like this you can’t really be a victory or despair personality, because you’d burn out,” says Shivaun, 49. “We insist on it being dispassionate.” Their company was destroyed, their lives bent out of shape – but the pair insist the campaign’s been worth it. “It would have been wrong to back out,” says Adam, 51. “So we just did the right thing.”

Wouldn’t it be cool if giant tech companies like Google would just do the right thing instead of basically being evil but using a slogan of Do No Evil…

Big tech is scary at times.
