The Zuck is a massive douche, is out of control & needs a reality check!
John D Rockefeller’s Standard Oil once controlled 90% of America’s oil, he too was a massive douche which saw his company eventually pulled apart because of it. Is it time to take a closer look at Facebook’s totally out of control attitude? Some are suggesting this may be the beginning of the end for this arrogant little twit! Lets hope so! Just look at the mess he has made of this debacle whilst Google has taken to constructive solutions.
With the code on the verge of becoming law, Google has in recent days struck constructive deals with Nine Entertainment, News Corp and Seven West Media – paying what amounts to a tiny percentage of its Australian revenue but is a meaningful sum for the news businesses.
Facebook has instead opted for destruction.
This is not a targeted strike against Scott Morrison’s administration or the Australian news industry. Facebook chose the nuclear option – and the fallout is global.
Before you dismiss that as hyperbole from a self-interested journalist, consider this. Facebook has not only stopped Australian news publishers from posting or sharing. It has:
- Banned Australian Facebook users from sharing news from local media outlets
- Denied Australians the ability to see news posted by media companies anywhere in the world
- Hidden Australia from the world, so users worldwide “cannot view or share Australian news content on Facebook”.
