Hate Agent

Breitbart got internal Facebook documents that show how they bring the Chinese Social Media scoring (or equivalent) to America. They have scoring on whether you're an agent of hate based on things like you associate with Christian organizations or people that are to the right of Stalin (they use far-left SPLC type enemies of left lists to see if you associate with the wrong people or organizations), they check to see if you use hateful symbols like cartoon frogs or OK hand gestures, if you said something in private that someone else claims you said (and sounds offensive to the left), if you like or support people like Candace Owens or terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel (because they said true things the left doesn't like). If you've done any of those things (among other clearer symbols) then you get a score that might get you kicked off the platform.

Facebook is 3 things: bad interface, bad management, and biased policies. I want a social network that gives me control of what I see and share -- both to my friends and to advertisers. I realize they need to make a buck, and my information is their product, but the point is you can still give users the illusions of control. But Zuckerberg seems to have falling into the egocentric pit that many young billionaires do, they think because they timed things well, and worked hard, and got lucky that they're smarter than everyone else. This makes them arrogant, less mature, and slower to grow than the average human: Dunning-Kruger, inflated by being surrounded by yes-men.
