Will Facebook ever become an open marketplace?


>> ANOTHER COMPANY FACING ONLINE SECURITY ISSUES TWITTER NOW RECOMMENDING THAT ALL OF ITS OVER 300 MILLION USERS CHANGE THEIR PASSWORDS, AFTER THE COMPANY DISCOVERED A BUG THAT INADVERTENTLY SAVES USER PASSWORDS UNPROTECTED. TWITTER CLOSING THE DAY IN THE GREEN UP OVER 1%. BACK WITH US IS CURT IS AND ERIC SCHIFFER. ERIC, HOW CAN WE BETTER PROTECT THE PRIVACY OF INTERNET USERS ISN’T THIS A MATTER OF MORE REGULATION OR IS THIS A MATTER OF THE COMPANIES THEMSELVES REGULATING THEMSELVES?>> WELL, I THINK THAT THIS IS TOUGH. I MEAN THE WHOLE ISSUE OF CYBERSECURITY, MANY OF THESE COMPANIES ARE DEALING WITH A VERY CHALLENGING SITUATION AND I DON’T THINK IT’S GOING TO GO AWAY. THIS IS A CAT AND MOUSE GAME WITH HACKERS ET CETERA. WE DON’T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED HERE WE JUST DON’T BUT WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THAT IT’S ALWAYS GOOD TO BE SAFE TO BE CHANGING YOUR PASSWORD ANYWAY, AND I THINK THAT AT LEAST TWITTER WAS IN FRONT OF IT. AGAIN, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT EXACTLY OCCURRED, BUT BE SAFE, CHANGE IT REGULARLY MAKE SURE PEOPLE AT HOME, THE PEOPLE THAT YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE DOING THE SAME. CURT, FACEBOOK HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT REGULATION SPECIFICALLY IN EUROPE PROBABLY THE REGULATION WILL COME FIRST BUT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT BIAS ALLEGATIONS ABOUT FACEBOOK AND THE NEWS THAT COMES ON BUT I GO ON FACEBOOK TODAY AND FIND THE FLAT EARTH PAGE WHICH PROVES THE EARTH IS FLAT AND A BIG FOOT EXISTS PAGE AND YOU CAN’T REGULATE STUPID SO AT SOME POINT YOU’RE AN ATTORNEY WHERE DOES PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY END FOR THIS SO-CALLED FAKE NEWS AND WHERE IS IT FACEBOOK’ RESPONSIBILITY TO TRY TO PROTECT THE CONSUMER FROM THEMSELVES ESSENTIALLY?>> WELL JOHN FIRST OF ALL I’M STILL UPSET BECAUSE NOW I HAVE TO CHANGE MY PASSWORD TO PASSWORD 1.>> [LAUGHTER]>> BUT LOOK, IT IS NOT FACEBOOK ‘S RESPONSIBILITY TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT THEY CAN AND CAN’T SAY. FACEBOOK SHOULD BE AN OPEN MARKETPLACE AND IF YOU WANT TO PUT OUT THAT THE EARTH IS FLAT, AND IF YOU CONTINUE ON, YOU WILL CONTINUE OFF THE EDGE INTO SPACE , THAT IS FINE BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT HUMAN BEINGS ESPECIALLY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW WHAT’S STUPID AND WHAT ISN’T BUT MORE NEFARIOUS MORE FRIGHTENING IS WHEN THEY GET INTO IDEOLOGY AND IF THEY START USING THEIR POLITICAL POWER, THAT IS TO CONTROL POLITICAL SPEECH, WE’RE GOING TO SEE THE PEOPLE WHOSE SPEECH IS BEING CONTROLLED USE THEIR POLITICAL POWER IN CONGRESS, TO REGULATE THESE COMPANIES. THE COMPANIES NEED TO STEP OUT OF THE BUSINESS OF TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT THEY CAN AND CAN’T SAY. AMERICANS, YOU NEED TO STEP UP AND BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH IDEAS YOU DON’T LIKE AND THOUGHTS THAT OFFEND YOU. THAT’S THE ANSWER, FREEDOM.>> AND CERTAINLY LOOKS LIKE REGULATION IS COMING AT LEAST AS FAR AS THE EUROPEAN UNION IS

  1. Would most people be willing to give a Mall operator or Walmart the types of information Facebook has extracted of over a decade, in order to have the right to go into a shopping area or store?

    Why is Facebook different? How about handing Costco all that information instead of a membership fee?

  2. Facebook is a neo-communist front.  They bent on oppressing free speech.  All speech is protected, without free speech we will face death for expressing thoughts.  Without thought we will die in a shithole, Islamic/neo-communist state.

  3. Just say no to Facebook. Search out the smallest alternative social platforms you and your friends can find to minimize their power. If you feel you must get on the major social media platforms to get the news, do it read-only and/or under an assumed identity.
