Listening to this, it was hard to tell when he talked about Facebooks power, if he realised the irony. The corporate MSM (PRESS) definitely have too much power.
Most of the content the corporate MSM promote is divisive, I am really struggling to see the distinction between the thing being moaned at, and the thing moaning 👀

I long deleted my Facebook! Stop giving them you power by handing over your data to them. Europe should build its own social media giants that Europe controls and pay taxes to Europe. So feeding the beast.

Governments now have to make specific rules and regulations for these platforms which have not been done as we have had an upgrade on technology over the years and we will keep upgrading sooner or later new laws and regulations do need putting in place, just like in the UK with the electronic scooters they are illegal but no one gets stopped by the police using one because there have been no laws put in place for it on Health & Safety, criminality etc. Every company will be about the money I mean thats the point of a business so I don't fully blame Facebook but actually the governments that should govern these technologies, platforms and upgrades. It's a process but a slow one.

Facebook is only for idiots now. If you don’t get it, you’re part of the worlds problems.

I think this video is misleading and does not answer its own question nor helps viewers to answer it on their own. Yes, facebook has a power to show you content they want or to ban certain people from their network(and they have all right to do so!). However, it does not have a power over your life or your media environment. You always have an ability to install another news app or social network along side with Facebook(and delete the hated app completly from your device) in just few taps of your finger.

And the most important point I would like spotlight:
if people organize their crimes using some social network, it does not make that social network responsible for that! You will not arrest postal office or phone manufacturer after terrorists used this publicly available services/products. Don't you?

And for the violence happened in the US capitol you better ask from Tramp and people who were direclty responsible for that.

I can’t understand all the hoo ha
It’s simple. Delete your account. Facebook will always be a cesspit of gossip full stop. Personally I can’t abide the site and detest its arrogant ways of demanding access to all it wants on your device. Faced with those demands I close the page and grant NO access to my personal information. I can’t imagine why anybody would

Best way to beat this is to turn Facebook off. I did and it’s a great decision for me

I deleted Facebook years ago. Not because of BS news stories, but it was useless in my opinion. I don’t care to keep up with my people and a lot of people had dumb opinions. It’s crazy to me how much of a money hungry giant Facebook is becoming and I’m glad I got out when I did.
