I did a two hour segment on the truth about Facebook today. Well, it was actually on the truth about Facebook, Google, Ebay, Paypal and the connection to the our government. You can listen to the show on our app-KZNU, commercial free- just download our free app on your smartphone. But here are some additional thoughts:
The good, the bad and the ugly:
The good– good American citizens are waking up. Think about it. The last 5 years of Facebook, have reunited with you with every person you have ever known in your life- bringing them together at one time. Maybe that’s not exactly perfect because life was never intended to be that way, as we graduate through phases and people in our lives, but now that you have your life’s “audience” gathered around your Facebook page, you have probably shared your religious views and political views more with everyone than you ever have before. We are sharing information at an intense speed and most people check Facebook everyday.
Bottom line? You are sharing your beliefs, values and triumphs like never before. We have a generation of younger people more engaged in politics than ever before. We have a nation of Americans getting angry and waking up more than ever before, where as politics discussed among friends was a no-no, now it’s almost expected.
The Bad– The government is behind Facebook and uses it frequently to spy on it’s citizens and get personal information on you within seconds.
The Ugly– They can’t believe we upload all of our personal info voluntarily.
