Decentralizing Facebook and Google

Both Facebook and Google have way too much power. They know who we know and can censor what we see.

Are there any viable decentralized ways to accomplish the same functionality as Facebook and Google?

Bittorrent is a good model, I think. Just keeps popping up and they can't squash it yet, though SOPA is definitely intended to.

America needs SKULLFUCKBOOK!, an app that works 24/7 to enroll synthetic personalities and pump them full of plausible, persona-specific transactions and searches at a rate of 100,000 new personalities per minute, until Facebook and Google ads are statistically worthless.


Hmmm, I like this idea. Would not be all that hard, and could be done to Google to, to devalue their ads.

There is already something a bit like it:

There is definitely a monopoly there, completely unregulated markets tend to lead to that, because you can just win by buying up competition and undercutting them to kill the rest off.

Perhaps we've finally figured out to use the internet.

Laura Loomer suspended until after the election.

Got up in Gillum's face too much. Asked him about DreamDefenders, a radical left wing student group he mentored and awarded as some Prog Youth Director a few years ago.

All Proud Boys suspended from Facebook. Gavin was suspended back in August.

Youtube is now removing dislikes from socialist candidates.

That difficult to find it?

Pat, tell me now. Are you ready to face down Larry and Serge and Zuckfuck in your drive way with M134?


Larry was actually a classmate at U. Michigan. He's OK, just too self-righteous and in denial about the evil his company is doing, like all the management at Google and Facebook are.

Spying on people for profit is inherently and unavoidably evil. Suppressing free speech and manipulating our elections is even more evil. Sharing all that collected data with the NSA and government of China is super-evil.

Facebook employees were caught writing 5-star Amazon reviews for its Portal device, and now they must take them down.

Facebook fudges numbers - 50% of users are fake.
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-01-24/facebook-slides-after-report-claims-50-its-users-are-fake

In a report published Thursday by PlainSite, an independent research shop led by Aaron Greenspan, analysts calculated that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been regularly lying to investors and the public about the company's user metrics, and that the company could be overestimating the number of users by as much as 50%.

The team detailed their findings in a 70-page report published on their website.

The first few suggestions when I registered for a new Twitter Account selecting only "Politics" coming in from a VPN in Miami.

The top three: Maddow, Nate Silver, Krugman. NO Conservatives, Not even Fox News or Limbaugh. Only Liberals. Even Obama but not the current POTUS.

Thanks @TwoScoopsOfSpaceForce

I appreciate the independent research you did. More of us should do that to expose media hypocrisy.

Executive Order: Any companies with a contract to hold US Government material on any server can only censor criminal behavior of US citizen users.

Sounds like another big win for Trump and free speech.

Only way to do it is to create a good enough competitor that people will use. Free market solves this.

I was on facebook, 3 groups I was in simply disappeared because they were infowars related. Just people talking among themselves. But some leftists didn't like us talking, so they removed the groups simply.

the spreadsheet of “hate agents” that includes Owens was posted to an internal employee discussion group initially founded by Brian Amerige, the former Facebook engineer who quit the company over concerns about political intolerance.

The source claimed that the spreadsheet includes the names of prominent right-wing and alternative media figures who were recently banned from the platform.

Candace Owens is also included in the spreadsheet, in a separate category marked “extra credit.”

I have to find the link, Commander, but the other day while looking for an updated hosts list, I came across one on Github that included Pro-Trump and "Fake News" websites, including the Epoch Times, Washington TImes, Federalist, Summit, and of course Infowars, mixed in with all the ad servers.

Not quite Facebook level but what the fuck happened that all the 90s Computer Libertarians turned into Left Fascists?

I'm working on it...

Seriously.
