The Smallness of Mark Zuckerberg

There’s no credible evidence, none at all, to indicate that this jackal has changed his spots, stripes, whatever, since he wrote this private message to a friend at Harvard back in the early aughts:

ZUCK: yea so if you ever need info about anyone at harvard 
ZUCK: just ask 
ZUCK: i have over 4000 emails, pictures, addresses, sns 
FRIEND: what!? how’d you manage that one? 
ZUCK: people just submitted it 
ZUCK: i don’t know why 
ZUCK: they “trust me” 
ZUCK: dumb fucks 


It’s important to remember that on many of the online platforms we use on a daily basis are free because we are not the customer but rather the product. On Facebook we generate and share all of the content which makes the site worth visiting while simultaneously giving away data that is extremely valuable. Facebook takes this data and sells access to it. Just another organization profiting off the labor of others. Seems like Zuck is just a 21st century version of the robber barrens of old.

While individuals are being exploited for their personal data, attention, and social networks the news media is being sucked dry by the social media giant.
