This is the thing normally I would never do: watching an entire keynote of Facebook Inc. and Mark Zuckerberg (Sugar Mountain, really?!). But after watching a 12 minutes edit from Verge, I had to. I had to go to YouTube and search for the entire Facebook keynote, just to listen if I heard all well. Mark, FB and privacy in one and same context. For an hour and 44 minutes.
I see the irony.
The first 30+ minutes time was the main segment of Mark, the leader of this blue-white abomination and it was filled with awkward cringe-moments (he never misses a chance to laugh about his own jokes). And his first appearance was about lying already:
“…today we are going to talk about building a privacy focused social platform…” – ha ha ha. And I thought my jokes were bad. As Joker once said.
With your business model?! I have to see that. Let alone the business model, just Google and check their trackrecord on privacy and security. If I think of that, Microsoft and Windows look like Alcatraz level security compared to Facebook.
“The future is private” – sounds great, right?! I just struggle to believe this weird, sneaky fellow. Although, there has been a drop of honesty (the only moment in the nearly two hours of plebs blinding):
“Look, I get that a lot of people aren’t sure that we’re serious about this. I know that we don’t exactly have the strongest reputation on privacy right now, to put it lightly.”
Very carefully expressed, but agreed on its REAL meaning. You have been for many years a bunch of lying, misleading, backstabbing asshats. To put it lightly.
Frankly, I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t have changed a lot if the United States government and the European Union political bodies wouldn’t have seriously questioned them and, later, fined them (multi-billions we talk about).
