This past week, if you’ve paid any attention to the news, you’d know that Mark Zuckerberg has been under interrogation in regards to Facebook.
Zuckerberg is a computer programmer and an Internet entrepreneur. He is most known for being the CEO and Founder of Facebook. As well all know, Facebook is a social media platform connecting millions of people from all over the world.
Because I’m a journalist, before an Op-Ed writer, my degree and furthermore my OCD said that you needed to know all of that information. Now that you have the background, here’s the rest….
Poor Mark, or Facebook I should say, has been accused of swaying voters towards that of our current President. *rolls eyes* Our government, more specifically the House and Senate, are saying that digital advertisements and other things featured on the website were the reason behind it.
Now, y’all know I always have a story behind what brought about my personal opinion. This time I so happened to be at work, on my lunch break, walking past the TV screen and seen the actual questioning on FOX News. I stood there for all of 3 mins, and thought..(to myself) “…this is some bulllllsh….”
It kills me to see Zuckerberg up for questioning for lots of reasons. One, when he first started Facebook, he was young, unmarried (I believe) and hadn’t started a family. Now, he’s married with a family.
Secondly, let’s talk about he’s always been straightforward about the ad’s targeted towards his users. It’s called marketing! It’s called in order for Facebook to remain free for its users, and Zuckerberg to continue making a living for his family, somebody’s gotta get charged….AKA ADVERTISERS!
So here’s a message to Congress…..from my low yella’ behind. STOP tryna’ deflect from the fact that y’alls demented selves put an idiot in office. STOP tryna’ make excuses for the racist, Republican bigots who have always existed and boldly stepped out of the closet to make their presence very much so known at the polls.
No one is responsible for putting Trump in office but the, in the closet racists, that voted for him, and I guarantee you Facebook had nothing to do with it.
