Siri "Regularly" Listens In On Your Sexual Encounters, Apple Insists "Only For A Few Seconds"
Katy Lin 8/14/2019 2:36:19 AM

Unfortunately, we can no longer trust any of these big tech companies. They care nothing of our privacy or our rights. All they care about is money. #Apple, #Google, #Facebook, #Amazon.

NXT-ID’s Crypto Play Awaits Traction Amidst Delisting Warning
Currency Trader 7/31/2019 5:56:03 AM

You make an excellent point - I often wondered why anyone would actually use #bitcoins to buy items (except for criminals of course), when it is so volatile. It reminds me of Germany's currency after World War I when people never knew how much their money would by the next day. #Facebook's #Libra is a stale coin which makes far more sense to me. Will $NCTD's Flip Pay be compatible with that?

The Table Is Set
Barry Hochhauser 7/26/2019 9:31:03 AM

On the one hand, I don't particularly trust #Zuckerberg or #Facebook. On the other, weren't they just found guilty of privacy violations and required to pay a $5 billion fine and be subjected to oversight? If so, wouldn't that offer some protection? $FB

Could A Cryptocurrency Become A Global Reserve Currency?

Anything is hackable. Including #Facebook. $GB

Libra: Facebook’s Audacious Bid For Global Monetary Control
Bill Johnson 6/30/2019 10:30:14 AM

Thanks Mark Borkowski, this is a lot of pertinent info that was not in the original article but important to know! Makes me realize the hype over #Facebook's #Libra may be more overplayed than I realized. $FB $LIBRA

Could A Cryptocurrency Become A Global Reserve Currency?

What about the concept of a stable coin. For example #Facebook's new #Libra. $FB.

Yes, some people don't trust #Facebook with their personal data (nor any other site). But FB has millions of users. If only a fraction adopt #Libra, it will be highly successful. Plus their platform will likely get many to use it, as opposed to just holding it for investment purposes. A stable coin is quite an intriguing idea. And Facebook has real expertise in taking an idea and turning it into a powerhouse. So yeah, I think Libra could be big! $FB

The Libra Win-Win and the Markets’ Third Wave
Barry Glassman 6/24/2019 5:31:26 AM

I wonder if #Libra will have any real competition. Even #Bitcoin would have a hard time competing against #Facebook.

Very Clever, Those Chinese Folks
Danny Straus 5/21/2019 6:25:37 PM

What about how #Google and #Facebook spies on us ever day? And for proof? Just have a conversation about anything and then look as you are shown ads about what you were talking about on your phone, or how the very question you were asking a friend is now automatically appearing in the Google search bar. That's downright creepy!

Facebook Should Put More Emphasis On Workplace
Mary Holan 4/29/2019 9:59:02 PM

I've used #Facebook's #Workplace. It's great. The company should definitely through more resources behind it.

Report: Facebook Under Criminal Investigation
Duanne Johnson 3/18/2019 6:05:30 PM

In my opinion, #Facebook has always played fast and loose with the law (or at least users' privacy) in order to generate more money. Will it be the end of #Facebook? Doubtful. It's become an indispensable communication tool for too many people. Companies too. $FB

It Just Gets Worse For Facebook

#Facebook is a mess. $FB

Net Censorship on the Rise
Bindi Dhaduk 10/24/2018 5:27:43 PM

Actually, I think more and more of today's youth are turning away from #Facebook and finding new, cooler, social media sites. Who wants to be on a site filled with your parents and all their friends? Facebook's time has come and went. It will still be around for awhile but in 10 years, it will be as dead as... whatever that site was that came before it than no one can remember :)

"Fess Up To Reality" - Former Google Exec Exposes Silicon Valley Hypocrisy In Scathing Essay
Cynthia Decker 10/8/2018 7:02:01 PM

I disagree. I've always thought it suspicious that tech giants like #Google and #Facebook, which have the greatest tech minds in the world working for them, can build amazing software, filters, facial recognition, search optimization, customized ad generators, translation services, and much more, but can't figure out a better way to combat fake news and hate speech. I've often suspected that either they didn't care enough, or simply didn't see the profit in it. Now that we know $GOOGL PROFITED from this behavior, it makes even more sense.

The Trump Tariff Put Will Expire Worthless
Moon Kil Woong 9/24/2018 5:06:06 AM

The market is not going up because of a #Trump put, it is going up because of the tax cut without a spending cut. This is called fiscal stimulus and it has negated the rather limited drop in monetary stimulus. If anything, the #tariffs and shenanigance in Washington over Internet regulation is holding the market back. If tariffs are cut and the trade war ends it will be a positive just like if the absurd hearings on #Twitter, #Google, and #Facebook end, that will help those stocks.

If or when this happens is debatable. Certainly if the whole market starts tanking, hopefully both of these will end and the government will focus on their job rather than creating more problems. Unfortunately, this is most likely to happen when the economy turns sour, providing limited relief, but most likely it will not turn the tide by itself.

Zuckerberg Scrambles To Calm Facebook Employees

I had no idea that #Facebook violated our privacy to such a degree!
