Enough has been written about the technological advances used behind-the-scenes at Facebook to cause me to close my account. Spying, collecting viewing habits/opinions, and selling information to third parties, it goes way beyond advertising and demographic info mining. -according to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, “Facebook in particular is the most appalling spy machine that has ever been invented.” Assange explained that Facebook is “the world’s most comprehensive database about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations, their communications with each other, and their relatives, all sitting within the United States, all accessible to U.S. Intelligence.” The NSA used Internet companies to gather massive amounts of data about consumers. The only way to escape data mining is to ditch these services completely…Donald Trump prefers social media to mainstream media. Mainstream TV has attacked Trump relentlessly since he announced his intentions. Now that he is in office, even comedy tv shows, like SNL, have doubled their effort to embarrass and degrade the President. How bad is Saturday Night Live? It used to be ‘must see TV.’ A review of last night’s show from the New York Times, beyond all the Trump-bashing, “the best moment of the night was when Mr. Baldwin appeared to flub a line, saying “cookie chillout” instead of “chili cookout.” Facebook and SNL are a waste of time.
