Technology has taken over the world with such force, it is becoming almost impossible to remember what life was like before such technologies like the internet and Smartphones.

This technology is proving to have some unintended and dire consequences to society’s moral fabric and mental well-being.

In a recent interview Roger McNamee, one of Facebook’s first investors and a former mentor to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, warns of the social media giant’s harmful and potentially irreversible effects on society.

McNamee, managing director of the private equity firm Elevation Partners, joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss the argument he makes in a new Washington Monthly essay, “How to fix Facebook — before it fixes us.”

He claims Facebook has prioritized advertisers and is aiding in the social engineering of its users, while leaving users open to unknowingly being herded into certain beliefs and/or feelings about certain topics.

    Hello Angle#3,

    Charlie here. A very funny video. Fakebook is the cause of ALL our problems. A self-aggrandizing self-important look at one’s self. If you talk to a doctor he will tell you how sick everyone is. If you talk to a carpenter he will tell you how everybody’s home needs fix’n and if you talk to Harvey Weinstein he will tell you how every women needs a …. (well I won’t go there).

    I still can’t get over the long-hair pushing Fakebook and the serious look on everybody’s face. C’ mon, it’s just a collecting agency for ads based on user content in exchange for narcissistic nonsense by a company created by fatherless MORONS!!

    Only a country that could put in a phony Negro sodomite as “President” could EVER call Fakebook a problem. Too funny… :lol: :lol:

    Take it from me, I should know. :roll: :roll:

    Signed,

    Charlie (President of the Master Baker’s Association to combat doughnut porn) :lol: :lol:

      Pink Slime,

      You did it again. Yea, a country that could elect that turd our president not just once but twice. Awe, we got problems. Yes, your right its actually funny.

      Thank you once again for showing us so. These young people need to turn off their cell phone and look around them to see the humor and reality of this life were living in the 2018 time.

      Oh well. Thanks again.

    Facebook is an instrument of the damned.
    If humanity is heading in a direction together then run the other way, simply because it is influence, not choice.
    Sheep to the slaughterhouse.
    Facebook’s bots have become self aware or the system has an incantated gollum inside. Selfies for example are vanity and not normal. A sickness infact.
    And if I see another SUCKERBURG downplayed family photo again im going to puke.

    The internet as a whole isn’t quite a good thing. It may make our lives easier to live, by enabling us to buy things easier and keep i touch with one another but aside from that it could be negative. It enables easier and more intimate spying on us, centralizes power to our capitals because of the ease we can now communicate and makes us slightly more crazy because what were once seperate countries, regions, are now linked to one another. Before the internet regions were controlled differently, locals controlled everything local, our councils served the region. Now, well thats all changed and it was sprung on us with such stealth and quickness that regions are now suffering. People now care more about stuff happening to someone on the other side of the planet who’s screaming of discrimination, than they care about the homeless living on the pavement outside their house.
