  1. Way to navigate and not answer any questions. It's so funny how they all say the same thing which is not answer any question and not responding to the question whether "Facebook feels confident that its scandals will stop" or that rules should be implemented. The company needs government control

  2. What Frontline gets wrong, is that now the term “fake news” has been weaponized by one political faction to stigmatize all of those pieces of information which are correct, and which counters their agenda. Donald Trump won because of Hillary and the Democrat agenda. Whom by the way, were really caught fixing the debates, and swaying the democratic primary election.

  3. Does anyone else notice that this girl at the end, the facebook rep has that same voice that Kathrine Blaisey Ford has. What is that voice? Where does that come from?

  4. Certain people learned how to abuse the facedook alogarythems. In other words there were some people who learned how they could have say 25 people all go online in an organized effort to bump a story up to the top of news chain. I'm not sure how many people it would take to control it and/or drive it's direction… it may require more than 25 people, but it could also be as few as 10 people. The point is that, I would think that certainly 500 or 1000 people could influence the entire platform. Once a person gets to the top of the story feed… once they become the King of the Hill, if you will, then they can control the narrative and keep the story rolling, spin off stories, I mean you could really cause some serious upheaval.
    As Americans, and perhaps a select group of our allies, we need to cut the rest of the world off from the internet… let them look but they can't touch. We don't need them and/or all their bullshit. At least have a way to see where all posts come from – have each persons IP address location show up so that foreigners cannot pretend to be Americans and hide behind the banner of some platform. So if I see here in the USA that a post comes from someplace outside the USA or outside my local area, I can just go ahead and ignore it.

  5. THERE IS NO FAKER NEWS THAN AMERICAN NEWS NETWORKS WHICH ARE RUN BY THE BANKSTERS WHO RUN ALMOST EVERYTHING ELSE AND IF WE THE PEOPLE DO NOT WAKE UP OPEN OUR EYES AND TRULY SEE WE WILL BECOME SLAVES OR WORSE WE WILL DIE FOR NOTHING AND THE SOCIOPSYCHOPATHICSATANICPEDOPHILES WILL REPLACE US WITH CYBORGS AND ROBOTS WHICH WILL SERVE THEM WITHOUT QUESTION AND KILL MOST OF US IN THE PROCESS!!!

  6. The Russians setup opposing pages to incite division, the political left amplifies one side, creating the division. Frontline comes along, see how divisiviness was created. Divisive! Divisive!

  7. Clapper? Seriously? The literati have their knickers in a twist. The eminent Frontline invoking fake news, missed Sharyl Attkisson documentation of the birth of fake news, watch the videos.

  8. How dare they presume to think for us. Fortunately other platforms are being developed. fb will be like myspace before long. Whoever these people are pushing is a clue who to avoid.

  9. @49:40 love it how shes just finally breaking down
    "like yeah, everything i'm saying, take at face value, facebook is all about #1 profits and making money,
    i don't care if people die, cuz i'm riding home in my Ferrari after this.
    what I'm really saying is, i can't do anything, AND EVEN IF I DID, I Just Don't Give A fuck
    And couldn't care to make it seem like i do"

  10. Is facebook the New World Order? Run by a young man, without any forthought? Is it a good idea to have an international conversation about the side effects of facebook? How do we own a system that is currently owning US? Thank you Mark Zuckerberg for creating this platform, truely, thank you. Please help the people help themselves into a new and better New World Order. Please know that you can be remembered as the father of a healthy future New World Order. Your actions or inactions now are creating history. Just keep this funny little thought in the back of your head, Nimrod was once a powerful king or emperor. Now his name is a curse. Washington, Jesus, Moses, Martin Luther King were just men that made small and large mistakes and also made awesome nations that have, are, and will continue to facilitate human society. What you and others have created can be a stepping stone to a New Human State. A dystopian future or something healthy that fosters life, and trust.
    If i can help you i will.

  11. In both parts of this series I keep hearing from Facebook's people the term "Idealism" which they are confusing with the term "Naive". When all those interviewed use the same terminology "too slow" then there IS a conspiracy of lies from Facebook.

  12. I've used FB with great success for various community activism efforts. An excellent way to reach people with facts about a matter that they otherwise wouldn't know that motivated them to take action, even in a vote. Nothing wrong with doing this. Everyone gets to see information presented and decide for themselves. The only ones who get angry about using FB is the losing side. Now, I would never post my personal info on FB, but use it for activism – hell yeah. The latest use was creating a FB group to fight a crooked school board lying to the public about the need to raise taxes. Our group, consisted of former board members, a former school treasurer and a financial auditor. We present the public facts and data taken from the school board documents, the last several years of state comptroller's audit reports, and the state education department. Of course none of us revealed ourselves – we were getting threats from the opposing side. I had people driving by my home, stopping in front of my house, and screaming obsenities at me. Another member of our group had someone try to run her off the road. And of course, the opposing side tried to discredit us and tried to say we were spreading misinformation via FB. So, this kind of negative protrayal of FB doesn't help any FB group that is working to do the right, and legal thing to stop a malevolent school board from raising taxes on people who can least afford it and in complete opposition to the comptroller's auditors who said the school is holding onto reserves in excess of the statutory limit and should use those reserves to provide relief to the tax payers. If we demonize FB for being a platform of fake news and misinformation then anyone legitimately using FB for a worthy cause can be demonized by default for simply using the platform. So, don't be too hypercritical of FB. It has good uses.

  13. Facebook is taking on the colossal issue of social interaction on the internet and trying to help us solve it. They aren't villains but they are ignorant beyond belief with what their true goal is. This is human evolution working itself out. First it was a privilege to have access to books and information. Kings and Queens had access but the normal plebes didn't. Now we can access it all online. The world is evolving faster than it ever imagined. These are those growing pains of humans wanting to merge to the next stage of evolution which does NOT include black/white thinking which has helped our species to get by for awhile. The internet is showing how awful our brains function with wanting to make everything "easy" and "simple" but this prevents evolution. Wish I could see how this plays out in a couple hundred years. Anyway I digress and bellow my thoughts into the internet blackhole.

  14. Perfectly timed to drop just before the election. Hmmm, nothing fishy here. Just remember that KILLARY PAID THE RUSSIANS TO TROLL FACEBOOK.! GOOD THING FACEBOOK'S ATTEMPT TO ELECT CLINTON FAILED.

  15. Facebook is not a free speech platform , it's an information gathering company that sells the users interests and information to others , it's a business not a charity , and you should quit this site RIGHT NOW !!

  16. I have to side with those saying that it's not Facebook's fault. There is way more responsibility on the people just blindly believing what they see online. It's not Facebook, it's not Russia, its the everyday voter who is too ignorant for their own good.

  17. This documentary lays out exactly why I left all social media shortly before the election. All I saw day n & day out was people, who were friends & colleagues normally, posting & sharing things that started very heated arguments that often turned very personal & nasty. The only way to escape it was I literally deleted facebook, twitter and instagram from my phone. And every since October '16 I've been off social media. It's enabled me to focus on my family, career & hobbies & get back some sense of normalcy I'd had before social media took over. Years from now scholars will look back on these times to analyze & discuss how much social media ruined America & the World. I just hope there's still the same America there's been for 250+ years, when they look back. And we're not like the ancient Greek & Roman's, gone but fondly remembered.

    PS: Naomi "White Washer" Gleit acts like she takes none of the issues brought up to her very seriously. Everything she says sounds like empty bullshit platitudes & "we're trying now, sorry about that…" what a horrible, HORRIBLE, human being.

  18. The underlying narrative of this piece is: social media is BAD because it allows foreign corporations/actors the ability to divide public opinion within the U.S. and thereby influence and manipulate those who are easily manipulated.

    And

    Social media is a GOOD to domestic corporations/actors who use it as a massive bait and switch scam to data mine, bombard with advertising, and invade the privacy ad infinitum with the intent to divide and manipulate those who are easily manipulated.

    So basically, the people who use social media are stupes falling for the "connecting the world" bit and letting private industry/government run amok. Sounds about right.

  19. THAT LADY NAMED NAOMI GLEIT IS A DIRTY PIECE OF LYER SHIT. JUST LOOK AT HER EYES, JUST TRYING TO SKIP THROUGH QUESTIONS WITH GENERIC RESPONSES LIKE, WE ARE LOOKING, WE DO NOT SUPPORT BLA BLAH THAT HAS BEEN TAUGHT BY MARK FUCKERBARG

  20. I have always been suspicious of "assbook" .. I see no reason to use it other than hey look at my life, I made an account on my childrens coaxing but now I am leaning towards deleting the account. This technology will do more harm than any good it can do. I believe most social media is actually anti-social in nature.

  21. There WAS no hacking using FB or any other platform, proves WIlliam Binney, the Technical Director of the NSA. Other such tech experts concur. The accusations then as now center on………….guesswork. Mueller's "WMD-type investigation of two years, turned up with precisely……………………………nothing.

  22. Zuckerberg's appearance in front of Congress was a "reckoning?" He faced nothing but softballs — from politicians who are ALL in Facebook's pocket and pocketbook.

  23. Facebook is so greedy $$$$ and doesn't care any shit. Hope the company goes down hill! After Nancy P I'm done with Facebook page 😡😡😡😡😡

  24. Despite Putin's cyber-pimping on Facebook and Comrade Trumpinov's bearded digital guy, the orange idiot still could not win even a plurality of American votes in 2016. Putin is laughing in the Kremlin, "I love the Electoral College. Stupid Americans. I put my houseboy in the White House."
