Jake Morphonios explains how Facebook lost 7% of its value, $40 billion, following news that it allowed UK company, Cambridge Analytica, to data mine for political candidates. In 2016, the company was paid $6 million to mine 50-million Facebook accounts on behalf of presidential candidate Donald Trump. The information was used to craft messages to manipulate voters based on their views expressed on Facebook. Cambridge contracts with private intelligence agencies to conduct highly unethical operations, including the use of bribery, sexual entrapment, and blackmail. Trump became the beneficiary of large campaign donations from the Mercer family, which is a major stockholder of Cambridge Analytica. His initial policy advisor, Steve Bannon, was a Vice President of Cambridge Analiyica. [If you think politics produces strange bedfellows, this commentary will provide you with lots of support for your convictions.] Morphonios concludes with the view that the huge loss by Facebook because of the operations of Cambridge Analytica could be the pin that will pop the economic bubble and do it very soon. -GEG

Facebook has two major problems, privacy and propaganda, which may lead to government regulation over the private company. Facebook is the biggest provider of news in the US, with a long track record of censorship, and it has the power to turn election results. Google and Facebook control 90% of the digital advertisement market. In addition, Americans’ privacy has been grossly violated because they have not understood the User Agreement.
‘Net neutrality’ is a scam that targets signal carriers, like Verizon and AT&T for strict regulations while content carriers, like Facebook, Google and Youtube, are exempt. They scare the public into thinking that ‘net neutrality’ will protect them from being gouged by high priced, multi-tier bandwidth packages. George Soros and the Ford Foundation spent an estimated $72 million since 2006 to control the Internet. ‘Net neutrality’ is used to gain support from those who do not understand the deeper issues of fair cost and censorship.
