Usually, the social stuff you post, or interesting videos, or pictures goes to the home page of your friends who "follow" you. Doesn't happen with links to political videos by the PC incorrect---Chris Bollyn or Ken O'keefe. Getting more and more controlled.

Facebook is wholly controlled entity, and it's owners can and will legally and with your consent, feed you whatever they deem fit, and use your personal information in whatever way their privacy codes dictate they can. Anyone who thinks they have rights when it comes to things they put on Facebook or any other social media is deluded.

Nothing you share on facebook is truly private. All activity is stored and ready to be handed over to any and all branches of law enforcement and government that ask for it.

There is no internet privacy anymore.

If you are in the throes of a divorce case for example. Assume your ex and his/her legal team are reading every single thing you do on the internet. Because getting access to all that so called private information is cheaper than you think.

The illusion of security companys like Mca**** etc. create are just that. Illusions.

Personally, me and my pals are going back to using Snail Mail. Ironically it's now the most secure form of data transference.

If you use it keep that manipulation in mind. Its becoming more difficult not to utize the main stream social media. Why would seminars be on twitter anyway!?!?

What you say is correct. It is still one of the few ways to get otherwise prohibited info (by the controlled MSM) out to the public, even if in small doses and step-wise fashion.

Facebook is a company...it doesn't belong to the people...realize they can do anything they want to anyone anytime with anything you put on it.

Duh!

I realize that. I'm saying that since that is the case, and since they have become more obvious in their censorship, we have to be a little smarter in the way we transmit certain information on social media.

I don't use facebook, ask me why. Go on I dare you. Seriously though, why be surprised at ANYTHING facebook does? You effectively sign away your rights to privacy when you tick that little box that says accept!

Eduardo Saverin, originally of Brazilian citizenship, later gained US citizenship when his family moved to Miami in 1993. Saverin owns 4% of face books shares, and moved to Singapore in 2009, he renounced his US citizenship in 2011, most likely to save a huge amount of money in capital gains taxes he would have to pay when Facebook became a publicly traded company.

4% only? anyway a bit of gossip
anyway if one of them is hiding already I don't think average user has to fear so much what fb owner reads their stuff but they still censor stuff that is annoying I heared the Feds are planing to censor political opinions during the next election . anyone think that this will happen?

Political opinions, opinions in general, and all posts made on Facebook are all ready censored. The problem with the platform isn't that owners might be reading your posts, they aren't, it's that they use algorithms to decide what kind of posts will be seen by any given user. Eduardo Saverin isn't hiding anywhere, he's in Singapore, a country that allows him to keep the 700 million he would have paid to the US government as capital gains tax.

Like, duh, you expected different? Facebook will soon rule much more than you can imagine, along with Apple and Google and the new FCC/FEC rules for the Obamanet will turn over pricing power to AT&T. That's one of the reasons I don't "Facebook". Of course, I'm sure eventually, they'll install mechanisms that will force the last holdouts to have to sign up for a Facebook account, just as they'll force the last hold outs to get a "Smart Phone" so they can track everyone endlessly.

Resistance is futile, you will eventually become one with the Borg.

Important Disclosure: I own Facebook and AT&T stock because,....I can, and profiting from the stupidity and misery of others is a highly profitable business plan.

Facebook manipulating? No!

Oh wait, like they did when they performed psychological experiments on their users without their informed consent, manipulating users' news feeds to show only negative stories then analysing their status updates to see if the users exhibited negative emotions? (They did.)

www.theguardian.com...

I could fill a whole thread about why I do not use Facebook.

You compared pictures to links. I suspect FB as being collectivist/progressive, but links aren't as visually stimulating as pictures. FB is for feelings more than thoughts.

That said, if the political topics could be summed up or associated with interesting pictures, then FB might use them.

FB sounds like a homeowners association that is big on appearances, and totally against garage mechanics, or welders or front yard gardeners.

Not true. It is easier to obtain metadata from snail mail as the post office takes a photo of every package it handles. Using anonymous email accounts and encryption you can in theory transmit information securely while creating less or false metadata.
