So it seems that Zuckerberg had a few things to say about the Whistleblower. As you can imagine, it was a word salad of absolutely nothing. For example:
Many of the claims don’t make any sense. If we wanted to ignore research, why would we create an industry-leading research program to understand these important issues in the first place?
It’s called a “CYA” or “Cover Your Ass”, Zucc. You got caught spreading misinformation and doing shit-all about it, so now you’re trying to shut the fucking barn door after the horse ran off six months ago. All you’re trying to do is make yourself look semi-decent in the court of public opinion.
It might work with some. There’s no way in hell it’s going to work on me, you little psychopath.
If we didn’t care about fighting harmful content, then why would we employ so many more people dedicated to this than any other company in our space — even ones larger than us? If we wanted to hide our results, why would we have established an industry-leading standard for transparency and reporting on what we’re doing?
You haven’t. You rely on algorithms and shitty ones at that. The actual moderators don’t stick around for long, because they burn out from the toxic shit you force them to approve. I’ve posted the articles about this on this very fucking blog!
And you have NEVER been transparent about ANYTHING, you pathetic jackass. Your fucking community standards are so nebulous that no one understands them. The only thing that is transparent is the fact that you’re more than willing to jump through ever hoop possible to make conservative white men happy. They’re the one group, the only group, you’ll ever protect.
And if social media were as responsible for polarizing society as some people claim, then why are we seeing polarization increase in the US while it stays flat or declines in many countries with just as heavy use of social media around the world?
You are fucking responsible for LITERAL FUCKING GENOCIDE, you mewling quim! So do us all a huge favor and STFU forever.
At the heart of these accusations is this idea that we prioritize profit over safety and well-being. That’s just not true. For example, one move that has been called into question is when we introduced the Meaningful Social Interactions change to News Feed.
You want more clicks, so you get more money. That’s it. You can fart out as many vapid bullshit platitudes as you’d like, but none of them are even remotely true.
You only care about your stupid little empire. That’s it. Nothing else matters to you.
And I don’t know any tech company that sets out to build products that make people angry or depressed. The moral, business and product incentives all point in the opposite direction.
You started this platform to compare college girls on how hot they were. That was it. You started this platform for a shitty reason and now you’re trying to play dumb and act like it wasn’t created for a shitty reason. Because now the white people media is upset with you and you’re willing to say anything to save face.
Say anything. Not actually do anything. You’re halfway believable with apologies but when it comes to actually changing anything, you absolutely will not do it. Because it might piss off all those cis het white guys that line your pocket with money.
I hope this is just the start of your descent into obscurity, Zuckerberg. I hope Facebook withers away and rots, like Myspace did years ago. May your platform fade away like a fart in a strong breeze, missed by none and its absence greeted with nothing but relief. It can’t happen soon enough.
