Its been two weeks since Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg met with leaders of conservative media to calm down accusations that it was censoring conservative news and opinion. After the meeting, one of the attendees, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell, characterized the meeting between Zuckerberg and conservative leaders as generally positive and cordial but, also expressed a cautious wait-and-see reaction to Facebooks promises of reform, citing the social media giants loss of public trust. He also said Well see how the [internal] investigation turns out.
Bozells caution was well-founded. The internal investigation took only a few days, and Facebook found no evidence of systematic political bias in the selection or prominence of stories included in the Trending Topics feature. Even though they accepted no blame, the social media site took action (sort of).
Facebook made inconsequential changes to their Trending Topics feature and continued its failure to address the anti-conservative bias affecting individual member pages.
On May 23rd, Colin Stretch, Facebook General Counsel posted on the Facebook newsroom page the steps it would take to fix the Trending Topics page, including:

M. Zuckerberg: the billionaire who knocks down all surrounding three storey houses and rebuilds them as ground level dwelling. That way, none of his neighbors can peep into Mark’s private dining room, bedroom and kitchen.
So different than Facebook itself, where personal privacy is laughed at, and made difficult to obtain for long.
Well, y’can’t call obama a faggot ... I have six more hours to go on my suspension
I walked away from Facebook a little over 4 years ago and I will not go back regardless of any changes.
I want nothing to do with Zuckerberg.
You can’t call that Kenyan faggot a faggot?
Classic fake corrective action response in business.....change the procedure, retrain everyone, but don’t change a thing that matters in the process.
Hey...I got three days for calling him a POS raghead! We should start our own page!
FarceBook is evil!
Facebook is more than evil...Amish had the right idea. It is dehumanization and wastes precious time. Try living like the Amish sometime...Oh yes, we would be arrested for child abuse or other absurd things—that my parents/grandparents did to raise virtuous children. Can’t instill virtue in children today (which will collapse civil society) because we have to embed laziness, dependency, sloth and perversions in our little children nowadays, as the “System” requires us to erase Virtue formation and all the Wisdom of the Ages (Christianity.) Children are consumers only.
Facebook feeds narcissism and envy and hate and materialism. I was on it for a few months and started hating my OWN relatives, and realized how dumb and time-consuming it was.
Did the same recently....
...off the grid feels good!

FB just signed a deal with the EU....efforts to block any dissent/free speech.
