Just did it. Been on the verge for a few months, but finally tired of being used for Zuckerberg’s benefit. And it is for his benefit and no one else’s. Sure, advertisers make hay off his back, but they could care less about ethics. “Z” has fallen into the same mix like so many others that have stumbled into the billion dollar bracket.
Suddenly it’s the “all’s fair in love and war” type attitude. The general public are nothing more than pawns to be moved about for fun and profit. “Z” has without doubt been schooled by others to think he is providing some priceless service to mankind. Sorta like
Al Capone. Remember him?
So, for me, I’m outta there along with all my content. I have three blogs which will give me all the exposure I am likely to ever need. Probably more than I need if I were to really look at who can access it and what they do with it.
Instagram and whatsapp are next, as they are owned by “Z” as well. So there’s no reason to do a halfway job at shedding that vestige either. It’s a shame, as there’s always someone who comes along and ruins a good thing. Come to think of it, the ones who did that are those who caved to the money for their programs in the first place.
Are they repentant? Who really knows. Since the damage has been done, who really cares? Our lives will go on as most will continue to hang on, believing they won’t be affected. This is like a slow developing cancer that by the time it’s discovered time’s up!
Am I going to miss Face Book, whatsapp.com or Instagram? What’s to miss? Sure the ability to communicate was cool, but at what cost. Again, we are like the frogs in the kettle of cold water. By the time most realize that the water has heated up to the degree their strength to hop out, even the willpower, is gone, it’s over.
Someone may come along with a better “mousetrap,” but we have to remember what the purpose of that device is in the first place. As many may have discovered during the past year, the U.S. government has a huge facility that has been copying all sources of digital communications for all U. S. citizens.
That has been discovered and documented. It supposedly is against the law…supposedly. Do you think for a New York second it has been dismantled and destroyed? All bets are that it continues to be added to. Any takers? How safe do you feel? And you thought threats to our National Security were from foreign sources such as China, or Russia.
So “Z” and his ilk are just pawns themselves in the greater scheme of things. While they may appear to be called on the carpet by various government agencies and politicians, it’s all part of the game. The subterfuge. As long as it serves Big Gov. it’s ok. Step out of line and watch how quickly it all falls down.
So the end to all this is a simple message to those who care. If you want to know what’s going on with me, follow my blogs.
