Facebook Whistleblower Frances Haugen Promotes Google Search Engine

Facebook wants to trick you into thinking that privacy protections or changes to Section 230 alone will be sufficient. While important, these will not get to the core of the issue — which is that no one truly understands the destructive choices made by Facebook except Facebook. We can afford nothing less than full transparency. As long as Facebook is operating in the shadows, hiding its research from public scrutiny, it is unaccountable. Until the incentives change, Facebook will not change. Left alone, Facebook will continue to make choices that go against the common good — our common good. […] At other large tech companies like Google, any independent researcher can download from the Internet the company’s search results and write papers about what they find — and they do!

It is tricky to find me on social media so my brand is non-existent

My goal is to build my brand to a status where in the local soccer world (Indy Eleven and United Soccer League) my name at least rings some bells. I have been trying to connect with professionals in the areas I am passionate about. I have also tried to interact and engage with fellow fans. I try to interact with them but in such a busy area it does not happen overnight. Like Public Relations consultant and textbook author Karen Freberg said in her presentation in my Strategic Writing for Social Media class, “Use your content to provide value to help others.” Keeping this in mind will give me an edge in capturing the attention of professionals I want to connect with.

Social media collects all kinds of data on people and then uses that data to manipulate behavior

Keywords: {0}

Social media users are thus pawns of all manner of salesmen and autocrats. They are brainwashed to want, fear and believe what corrupt and nefarious forces want them to believe in order to expand those forces’ wealth and power.
