Why Jim Carrey Dumped His Facebook Stock, Deleted His Page and Is Calling for a Facebook Boycott

Friday, February 9, 2018 11:43
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Facebook has been under fire all year as a new change to their algorithm will again take pages and businesses out of the newsfeed and replace them with more ‘friends’ posts. A move that apparently users asked for even though Facebook has provided no proof of that.

In fact, Facebook is the only one set to gain from this move as now businesses will have to pay even more to reach an audience they worked so hard to build. Further, users will no longer see any of the content they took the time and energy to say they wanted to see.

This leaves Facebook in the midst of a transition that will likely bury themselves as they are making their platform less useful to users. You see, users decided how they wanted to use Facebook when they began sharing and putting information out that they saw from brands they love. Yet, Facebook feels it knows what users want more, and is now taking that all away.

I have called this  Facebook’s start to their own downfall. They’ve chosen constant growth and profit over user experience, instead of a sustainable business model that also aligns with its users. And users can see this, in fact, they are upset that they don’t know how Facebook works nor how to control what they want to see.

Now Facebook has come under attack again as a tweet coming from the conscious mind of Jim Carrey states he will be dumping his Facebook stock and deleting his Facebook page because he feels it’s unacceptable that Facebook profited off of Russian advertisements in Facebook about the US election.

I’m dumping my @facebook stock and deleting my page because @facebook profited from Russian interference in our elections and they’re still not doing enough to stop it. I encourage all other investors who care about our future to do the same. #unfriendfacebook

Russian Ad Buying On Facebook

Of course Jim is referring to the information that came out about Russian ad purchasing on Facebook during the 2016 US election. Facebook and Twitter had revealed that Kremlin-linked groups were buying advertisements on both social media platforms during the 2016 presidential election. The ads appeared to push voters away from Hillary Clinton and instead towards Donald Trump, Jill Stein, or Bernie Sanders.

Whether or not you agree that this made a difference in the election, which it likely did not, some are not happy about it.

It’s unclear whether or not Jim is unhappy with Trump’s election or if he more so is trying to hold Facebook accountable for its unconscious actions in allowing another country to create advertisements that could sway voter decisions, but nonetheless he has something to say.

“We must encourage more oversight by the owners of these social media platforms,” Carrey stated in aCNBC statement. “This easy access has to be more responsibly handled. What we need now are activist investors to send a message that responsible oversight is needed. What the world needs now is capitalism with a conscience.” 

Why Would Russia Do This?

If you have been following what is happening outside of mainstream news when it comes to the election, you may have noticed that the media went pretty silent about the incredible level of corruption and election manipulation Hillary and the DNC were involved in.

From a bigger picture perspective, Hillary is part of a Deep State regime that has been in power for a very long time. Obama, Bush’s, Clinton, etc. Much of the intelligence we got here at CE during the election pointed towards a divide happening within the Deep State that was pushing out the Clinton’s.

You’ll notice that the Russian ads did not pick one party over another, but instead simply pushed Clinton out. Which makes sense when you consider the divide that is taking place and the move towards ending a deeper side of the corruption that exists within politics. Sure, this is still a corrupt move, and they didn’t put a saint in power, but if you were to do the research, you’d understand Hillary was much more of a poor choice and corrupt individual than any other candidate running… by a long shot.

So based on reflection, perhaps Russia is on the side of helping to pull a piece of the Deep State out of a long time held position.

The Challenge With Media Today

But in a different sense this goes back to an entirely different thing. We must learn to become more critical in our thinking and take responsibility for ourselves and our actions. Just because we see an ad, doesn’t mean we need to be swayed by it.

In fact, that’s a big problem with much of media today. It is manipulative in that it pushes a very clear agenda on the population, yet the population en mass has not yet chosen to stay present and take the time to see through the drama to get to the facts. Even most alternative media is like this. This is an important lesson for us all.

As creators of conscious media here at Collective Evolution, we do not use emotion, anger, fear, or manipulation tactics to present information. We simply provide it for what it is, challenge users to think deeper about it and focus on a big picture understanding. This allows readers and video watchers to make up their own mind, challenge their current ways of thinking all without manipulatively trying to make it happen through fear and panic.

    Jim Carrey is nuts, this guy really got mental issues, and he is dumping Facebook all for the wrong reasons, if you are using Facebook as social media and open yourself up viewing your real social connections/network in life, then you should wizen up and dump it right away.

    Internet was created by ARPA (before DARPA) by a psychologist in the purpose of controlling the people.

    Ole ‘left-winger’ Carrey is right ..( for a change.). and you can also include Goggle! I still say they need to deport this ‘politically stupid’ Hollywood commie ‘loudmouth..’ anyway.

    Yeah, but Facebook is a great way to witness for the TRUTH for free. Users can type in
    key words and get your message delivered before their eyes. As for U.S. presidential
    elections: sadly, I believe that for many years our leaders have been previously
    “selected” NOT freely elected. And, yes, this includes President Donald J. Trump! :idea:
