Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg was once the pride and joy of liberals, corporations and government officials who happily paid him for the personal data of Facebook users. Zuckerberg, 33, went into hiding after news broke that a British analytics firm working with the Trump campaign had obtained personal information on 50 million Facebook users.

Over the last few days Zuckerberg quietly sold off Facebook shares and pocketed a cool $900 million, as other investors dumped their shares of Facebook in the wake of the scandal.

Insiders say Zuckerberg has been quietly selling off millions of shares of Facebook for billions of dollars as part of his plan to liquidate $12 billion worth of Facebook stock.

Market analysts say Facebook is in trouble because it was never worth $500 billion for a website that has no product to sell.

On Twitter.com, master hacker Julian Assange noted that Facebook has no product to sell because the product is YOU.

Hashtags calling for users to delete Facebook have been trending on Twitter.com.

"If you're angry about what Facebook has done with our data then just #deletefacebook. Remember we aren't the customers we are the product," wrote one user on Twitter.

Comedian Jim Carrey announced he sold his shares of Facebook and deleted his account. He called on other users to delete their Facebook accounts as well.

CNN, who campaigned heavily for Hillary Clinton in 2016, published a guide with instructions on how to delete Facebook completely (apparently deleting Facebook is a little tricky).

The Obama administration once bragged that they obtained personal data from millions of Facebook users during Obama's 2012 re-election campaign. But the tables have turned now that the recipient of that same information is President Trump.

    I think the whole thing is dumb af

  • 5000BlinK

    I think its super dumb but this is the start of certain people to monopolize Facebook, Google, Amazon, etc......... They hold too much power over people and their money and other business are tired of it. The time is now or never

  • 5000BlinK

    I left out Apple...... who should have been named FIRST

  • MsPam

    Jim Carrey is a dangerous nut case, he needs to go jump off a cliff.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    Serious who is going to delete Facebook? People are literally addicted to Facebook.

  • xenaD

    I deleted like 6 years ago! F fb I have been sm free but I did create an Instagram a few months ago but that sh bouta go too! Everybody so fake and I find myself bragging and judging and acting stupid just like em! Idk wats going on with fb and Snapchat but ??

  • Yoni7

    I haven't deleted FB but I surely have cut down my time invested in it. TREMENDOUSLY! Like damn near non-existent.

  • 5000BlinK

    If given a choice..... they will have no option

  • 5000BlinK

    TRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  • 5000BlinK

    Speak xena!!!!! Its like you feel like your dumbing yourself down buy reading certain things and looking at certain things... so you have to control yourself and just remove your self from that place and say..... "to each its own" but my soul going the other way. Im kinda guilty on it here, I say things Im not proud of and laugh and things but I dont come on here as much as I use to, so when I cut up a lil bit.... hold it to the "moment in time" and not my heart

  • 5000BlinK

    What is Jim doing now!!!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I deleted FB a few yrs ago and was off of it for over 2 years. Then my gf asked me to re-open it so she could add me and include me in pics. Once we broke up last yr, I deactivated it again! I have no SM accounts open. Too much drama and BS attached to them! Plus, I'm a 70's baby so it's easy for me to be without SM. I didn't grow up on it so... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/52f9e6b09f424f973ad1bda76a967e87e6546e63226031077267a2936d56aecc.gif https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0fe7b56cf8fa698744f6f99fdfd09e03c36445f3294a7a210141706834c0b86a.gif

  • You Could Never

    I was off of it for 4 years lol. Recently reactivated start of 2018.

    and that shit about to go away again already. That didnt take long.

  • Kemi

    Deleted my fb 5 yrs ago n never looked back. Too much messiness

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    It's people you add as friends that make you feel that way. My brother has 50 Facebook friends and thousands of request he simply say im not adding people I don't know and I delete people who post drama. Me personally I post and hop off, i dont even scroll. Then again I do like drama as long im not in it

  • xenaD

    and I have recently been introduced to blogs and comment sections...
    Yes people r judgemental and what not but mostly prejudice and racist af My goodness.
    I’m bout to be off the internet lol
    Just throw the whole computer away.
    Imma stick to my paperbacks lol

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    Facebook ain't going no where. Facebook also owns Instagram. I rarely check in my Facebook page tho... Then again I used to think MySpace wasn't going no where lol

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Nothing to miss! I prefer to come to the blogs and enjoy myself this way, to pass my time as I'm at work and not busy. But once I leave the J for the day, I'm not posting or replying to anything or anyone. I log OFF.

    Uber owns 25k of those self driving vehicles from Volvo they were about to unleash before it ranned that lady over earlier this week. Im sure after that they will own them for quite sometime as Im sure nobody wants to buy it from them. And Volvo prolly said hell naw yall stuck'ed with em.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    When my FB was open, I was just like your brother. The only friends I had on FB were people I actually knew and my family. That was it. So me deactivating my account wasn't a big deal. They all know how to reach out to me via e-mail and they have my phone number.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    are you aware that you pick your own Facebook friends. Simply delete drama people

  • 5000BlinK

    Nawwwwww..... I started out blogging, Ive been around for decades!!!! Blogging doesnt really bother me at all.... but facebook or instagram its people you actually know in real life... Twitter is fun for celebs but its about the same too because people that I really know want to joing my twitter.. so now I just speak less! That way my page is considered boring and people dont really watch it

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    I see it like this, i have family members I don't see, i use Facebook to interact with them. I simply delete people who bring drama on my timeline. It's that simple

  • xenaD

    You blog about celebrity gossip and stuff?
    I used to blog about my pregnancies and mom stuff like that
    But... idk

  • Kemi

    I am aware when I responded to their requests but didn’t know they will end up messy.

    I got tired of the fights, family and relationship issues being discussed openly, pretentious counseling sessions by fake and unlicensed people and unsolicited advice. It got too draining and I bounced.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    ?? I hate unsolicited advise to, especially from strangers

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Sounds real messy. Makes me glad I never got a FB account.

  • Kanyade

    lol

    people add the messy people.You have control of who you add on Facebook. I simply delete people who post drama. It's that simple

  • Yoni7

    EXXXXAAACCCCCTTLLLYY!! I go home to what matters.......MY FAMILY! I don't even turn the radio on for the drive home. I mentally detox from the day. I go home and I don't turn on the TV either. Just relax.....and play/do sight words with my Grand-SUN!

  • Kemi

    I hated it too...they got answers for everybody but themselves. Lol ? ?

  • Kemi

    Gosh it was messy. Everybody and their mama got something to say.

  • Yoni7

    THIS! Somebody sent me a message on messenger today talking about they want to vent to me about MY best friend (who doesn't have FB either). It was from HER own sister. I told her I'd hit her back at another time and that I hope all was well with her. PEAAAACCEEEEE!!!!!

  • 5000BlinK

    Auntie, Can we get an updated post on TOYS R US CLOSINGS IN AMERICA!!!! I think their bankruptcy court date is today and in 3 months or less they wil be gone. They just were no match to Walmart and Amazon

    First of all Zuckerberg is not in hiding!!! He is a billi...... He can go anywhere he would like and you would never see him... not even on a phone chat. Thats the life when you have that much money... I only dreammmmmmmmmmm

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Not gonna lie, I do watch TV when I get home. Take my shower then re-watch Game of Thrones or other movies/shows I enjoy. Phone don't even be near me.

  • You Could Never

    They also cite they were no match to kids having cell foams.

  • Jack Blakk

    Assange and anyone who is in technology knows the beast is technology. It doesn't talk back, it does what it's told and it's holds enough to ruin a Nation, a Nationality or a person.

  • Hmmm~?

    I deleted mine back in 2011. I recently made a dummy account just for the purpose of looking up people. Otherwise, I haven't actively used FB in over 7 years. It's plenty of other ways to stay in contact with folks. Facebook been the devil.

  • kennedy220

    some people can't handle Facebook....i mean you pick your battles on there...i only add people i know and my business page has it's people...when there is drama i just move along...i mainly watch funny videos about dogs anyway and dance vids that hav been posted

  • Yoni7

    Nope.

  • Yoni7

    MINE TOO! LMAOOOOOOOOOOO

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    I'm the same way. I have no SM accounts and don't want any. Only when my kids get on one I may pop on from time to time just to see whats posted and what they may be posting. I have a office job so I keep the ringer to my phone off. I hear phones ringing for 8 hours, I don't even talk on the phone anymore.

  • MsPam

    I didn’t see it, I’m not a Trump supporter or voted for him nor the one before him, not the one after that. I don’t put my faith in politicians. Ha, ha, ha !!!

  • 5000BlinK

    BAM!!!!!! my thoughts exactly

  • MsPam

    He’s mean spirited, I always thought he was a hole! Even on Living Colours, I knew he was going to use that as a steppingstone and go back to be white trailer trash, he has never been funny to be!

  • 5000BlinK

    Im sure this was the # 1 reason

  • TheOwley

    I always thought those twins had the FB idea stolen from them by this guy who got away with it.

  • n1kk1a

    @Kemi...omg, I know someone like that right now. He swears up and down he is a counselor or some type of self-help guru...giving out that hood advice on facebook.
    I know we all have life experiences, and can help others with certain things. I just don't understand why people won't seek professional help, from an actual licensed professional? regularly?

  • 5000BlinK

    I use to do that at first but the internet was not as polluted as it is now. Somebody migt recognize my azz nowdays

  • Kemi

    I don’t blame you... some of them family members esp distant relatives come out of the woodworks to penetrate into your life. Not saying all but I’ve witnessed firsthand how someone in my family tried to ruined my cousin’s homelife.

    You can completely delete Facebook by logging into Facebook and click "Help" in the upper right hand corner (next to Settings).

    1. Click "Visit Help Center".

    2. Under "Managing your account," click "Deactivating or Deleting Your Account".

    3. Click "How do I permanently delete my account?"

    4. In the first paragraph, click "let us know" and it will redirect you to another page with the option to delete your account.

    (https://www.facebook.com/help/delete_account)

    Confirm that you want to delete your account, then wait 10-14 days for Facebook to completely erase your data from their servers.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So what's wrong with Jim Carey?

  • Kemi

    Right!!! I’ll be careful taking advice from people online, even in close relationships I’m still careful. And what upsets me the most is, they oftentimes bring God and religion into their destructive advice.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Me too! I can live without it! I knew it was time when my 60 something year old sister who sent me a friend request. Then I see on her timeline what I feared her typing like she is sending a text to someone not knowing its public..then called me saying didn't you get my message on FB? I looked no DM. Go to her time line in all caps "HEY NA NA GIVE ME A CALL AT 777-9311(Her real number tho)...lawd...

  • Kim’s Original Face

    only reason i check FB is because fameolous has a fb page and im too cheap to pay the 10.99 for her website.

  • EMILY POST

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    My 67 year old mom just got on FB a few months ago and it's all new to her. My son's and I are constantly warning her of the dangers of being on SM and to be careful when posting. She pulled a similar number as your sister and I smh and had to explain to her how to use messenger instead of posting publicly on people's pages. My brother and I had to tell her to STOP sending out those damn chain messages on there, too.

    Glad to see that Julian Assange is still alive. During Clinton campaign it wassail that he's dead.
    Mark Zuckerberg is the epitome of an asshole. I'll never forget the look on his longtime girlfriend's face when he planned their wedding without her and handed her that Walmart diamond ring. He pulled the same marriage stunt that Ludacris and his mother pulled on Extinct.

    I just posted on her a few days ago that SM is in link with National Security Agency and they are pooling information about their users and building profiles. They use face recognition software to search for criminals, spies and whatever else they decide. You all freely give them all your personal and social information that they own once you post it.

  • Fire & Ice

    I wonder how her app is doing?

  • Bonita

    Dang, I didn't know all that about the wedding planning.

  • Bonita

    You and me both. I just refuse to pay for gossip. I don't care if it was 1.99. I don't spend money on things that aren't important to me.

  • Allihave2say

    People never read the fine print when they sign up for these social media accounts. You can copyright your material all day long but in those contracts they have a right to distribute your information to third parties without your knowledge and consent.

    It isn't new that FB, SC, and IG are using or selling your personal information. It was revealed about one year ago that FB was working with developers and the government to create predictive software to predict what you might think of doing based on the information you view on Google, FB, IG, SC and YT. They want to know and track your actions for nefarious purposes only. People happily give their information away for free like they do at the casinos, giving everything they have with little prospect of getting anything back.

  • Allihave2say

    Once Zuckerberg got in bed with the high tops they weren't going to let FB tumble in a lawsuit. Notice those guys have gone silent.

  • Allihave2say

    You can delete everything on your FB page but FB still has your information stored on their servers around the world. The public may not be able to see what you previously posted but FB still has your secrets.
