I've heard that said about professional sports... :whistle:
My guess: Someone is just too addicted to their hobbies and tries reasoning politics into guaranteeing their further existance...

That said: We should have tried that stunt on SL and demanded for it to be sozialized to the UN when LL had money problems LOL...

Facebook Inc said on Tuesday it removed 7 million posts in the second quarter for sharing false information about the novel coronavirus, including content that promoted fake preventative measures and exaggerated cures.
We've found another pit of vipers!

Websites spreading misinformation about health attracted nearly half a billion views on Facebook in April alone, as the coronavirus pandemic escalated worldwide, a report has found.
Facebook had promised to crack down on conspiracy theories and inaccurate news early in the pandemic. But as its executives promised accountability, its algorithm appears to have fuelled traffic to a network of sites sharing dangerous false news, campaign group Avaaz has found.
False medical information can be deadly; researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical medicine have directly linked a single piece of false information to 800 coronavirus deaths.

Yup, I am starting to learn not to ask politics on there from anyone I have been out of touch with for more than a decade.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg may have attempted to sabotage TikTok by convincing Washington lawmakers the Chinese-owned app was a threat to American business. The Wall Street Journal reported Zuckerberg was able to make his case to President Donald Trump during a White House dinner in October, arguing that tackling the popular video-sharing app should be a greater priority than regulating Facebook.

Following these conversations, in October, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., called for an investigation into TikTok and its potential security risks. Trump eventually signed an executive order banning the app in the U.S., a move that TikTok plans to challenge in court.

The killing of two protestors in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Tuesday night may have emerged in response to a Facebook event posted by a self-described militia, which referred to the event as a “call to arms.”

The event was also promoted by Infowars, which posted a screenshot of the Facebook event listing. The listing is no longer publicly accessible but, reached on Facebook, the Kenosha Guard account confirmed to The Verge that the screenshots were authentic. The group’s Facebook page has also been taken down, but it boasted more than 3,000 members as of this morning.

A Facebook representative said they could not comment at this time, citing an ongoing investigation. However, the platform confirmed to The Verge that the Kenosha Guard page had been removed for violating the platform’s Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy, which was expanded to include militia groups earlier this month.

Facebook hates on Apple, does anyone care?

Apple blocked Facebook from informing users that Apple would collect 30 percent of in-app purchases made through a planned new feature, Facebook tells Reuters. Apple said the update violated an App Store rule that doesn’t let developers show “irrelevant” information to users.
"App Store rule that doesn’t let developers show “irrelevant” information to users"

I really want to see this rule.
