Facebook is a worldwide online social media and global networking service owned by Facebook, but I am over and out of there.

The CBS New Program  60 Minutes says Facebook puts profit over safety and amplifies the worst of human nature.

The platform also owns #Instagram and #WhatsApp, to get messaging and calling for free, available on phones all over the world.

The case for deleting our Facebook account has grown stronger each and every day, so for me, the time came and I went away.

Facebook is misleading the public on progress against hate speech, violence, misinformation. “Facebook has realized that if they change the algorithm to be safer, people will spend less time on the site, they'll click on fewer ads, they'll make less money,” says Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen. She said that a 2018 change to Facebook’s news feeds contributed to more divisiveness and ill will.

Others say engagement through enragement is helping to drive the misinformation wars and tearing the world apart.

Ms. Haugen says in her time with Facebook she saw, "conflicts of interest between what was good for the public and what was good for Facebook." Scott Pelley reports.  https://www.cbsnews.com/news/facebook-whistleblower-misinformation-publ…

And 60 minutes is not alone. The Largest Autocracy on Earth Facebook is acting like a hostile foreign power; it’s time we treated it that way. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2021/11/facebook-authorita…
