    My wife is in a contest where we go on a Tapas Trail and you take a picture of one of the participating restaurants, upload it to the town website and the pictures with the most likes win prizes. It's nothing big but she just feels bad because she doesn't know that many locals. If you have a Facebook account please go to the link and like her photo. She probably still won't win but at least she'll know Freepers support their own. Please Like This Picture

  • Publishers are seeing another big decline in reach on Facebook

    04/20/2017 7:03:38 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 38 replies ^ | 04/20/2017 | Lucia Moses
    The Facebook anguish continues. A Medium post investigating declining Facebook reach has set off the most recent alarm bells among publishers. Kurt Gessler, deputy editor for digital news at the Chicago Tribune, posted that since January, the Tribune has seen a significant drop in the reach of its posts on Facebook, despite having grown its fan base. The post sparked a sigh of validation across publishers as others chimed in on social media that they’re seeing similar declines. @kurtgessler This looks somewhat familiar to me as well. It's not just you. — rob blatt (@robblatt) April 19, 2017 @whet @kurtgessler...

    Facebook officials said they will not punish any employees who choose to take off work May 1 to protest President Donald Trump. Pro-immigration groups, socialist organizations, labor unions, and hundreds of thousands of workers are planning to walk out on their jobs on International Workers Day. “At Facebook, we’re committed to fostering an inclusive workplace where employees feel comfortable expressing their opinions and speaking up,” a representative told Bloomberg. “We support our people in recognizing International Workers’ Day and other efforts to raise awareness for safe and equitable employment conditions.” Facebook told staff about its policy April 14, specifically clarifying...

    Supporters of Black Lives Matters (BLM) took to social media Tuesday afternoon to blame Steve Stephens' actions on white people and other motives. One BLM supporter was upset that Stephens murdered a "black man" and said that he "could've at least killed a old [sic] racist white dude:" Last year, in multiple posts, the same user voiced his support for Black Lives Matter: A number of Twitter users claimed that "white people" were using the incident to "divide" the nation, and another stated that it was "ignorant" to hope that Stephens was killed by police: Still others hinted at some...

    Still on the loose. This is really just a quick public service announcement because we really, really don’t want any of you to get hurt . . . or killed, as Robert Godwin Sr. unconscionably was in Cleveland yesterday. His apparent killer, Steve Stephens, is still on the loose and police have now expanded the search for him to five states - specifically Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and Michigan in addition to Ohio. (As most of you know, I live in the Detroit area. I’m not scared but I’m sure as hell keeping my eyes open.)

Police warned early Monday that residents in Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and Michigan should be on the lookout for 37-year-old Steve Stephens, who is driving a white Ford Fusion and is believed to be armed and dangerous. “Suspect may be out of state at this time,” officials said in a statement. “Those outside of Northeast Ohio: Contact Local Authorities.”

    How much face time will your news story get on Facebook? How many eyes will ogle it on Google? Too often, this is apparently determined not by whether the story is “fake” news or newsworthy, but by whether it’s politically correct. And it’s time to break up the Internet’s left-wing, information-conduit oligopoly. If “knowledge is power” and “The pen is mightier than the sword,” entities controlling what pens you see are powerful indeed.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has apparently decided she's not willing to take the chance of becoming the latest politician to fall victim to the same "Russian hacking" and "fake news" campaigns which 'undoubtedly' caused the downfall of America's liberal darling, Hillary Clinton (forget those pay-for-play scandals, federal record retention violations and willful non-compliance with Congressional non-factors in the 2016 election). And since they can't really control the actions of those pesky 'Russian hackers," Germany's cabinet has instead decided to pass legislation that would impose serious fines of up to 50 million Euros on any social networks that fail to...

In 2014​,​ Facebook challenged Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus’ Vance’s bulk-search warrant demanding information on 381 of its users who were suspects in a major investigation into NYPD and FDNY Social Security scammers. ​More than 100 people have been convicted in the s​​cam.
