Facebook, an Empire Bound to Fail and Fall
Below would be the response I’d gotten from Facebook after reporting a video posted of a snake attacking and eating a puppy. The numbers of those in an uproar over the posting numbered in the thousands or tens of thousands. So I think I can say sans contradiction that quite a percentage of these had followed another’s suggestion in reporting the video.
I’ve said it in the past and now I’m even more convinced than ever. Facebook’s days are numbered. Between the Ad nauseam flood of crappy ‘fake’ news + sensationalizing posts and the huge rise of advertising we’ve seen within this social media outlet I can easily envision someone coming along with a better solution. Not that I myself will be leaving Facebook anytime soon, I won’t. But, like anything else that strays from the universally understood realms of decency, FB is bound to crumble and destroy itself from within and without; regardless of what their stock price numbers might be.
