Facebook and social media, what we got wrong

A long time ago, I presented on this blog a few examples of how Facebook and other social media are used as political tools rather than social cement. I was blamed and censored from forums, including the section “r/conspiracy” of Reddit. It seemed that I was being too harsh.

That was until lately when it was revealed that Facebook has been colluding since the beginning with social engineering companies in order to influence people. Video below:

Watch it, totally, even if the guy looks like pink poney land. From The Guardian:

But there are no factors as large and persistent as a weaponized Facebook – the trusted and entirely unregulated delivery vehicle for an astonishing amount of highly targeted disinformation.

Without Facebook, there would have been no Pizzagate, and the hacked DNC emails would have struggled to reach their intended audience. The strangely Russia-loving Green party would never have tallied enough votes to skew those three battleground states towards Trump…

As the now-suspended CEO, Alexander Nix, put it so well: “It sounds a dreadful thing to say, but these are things that don’t necessarily need to be true as long as they’re believed.”

I know, that is rather funny now because the left is in fact trashing its own tool. They hate Trump to the point that even set their baby Facebook on fire. Anyway.

I hope that you believe me when I say that Facebook is dangerous for your mind – both men and women. The only goal of Facebook is to influence you to comply with the mainstream agenda. In scientific terms, Facebook and media use a weak point of our mind named “cognitive ease”, well described in “Thinking fast and slow“. For those who do not want to read, watch this video:
