Boozie is suing Facebook for $20m

That’s because Boozie broke the Terms of Service of Instagram by posting things that otherwise indicated that he was procuring things for a child that were mean’t for an adult. Over the weekend, it surfaced that Boozie has in fact sued Facebook and Mark Z for more than $20m claiming that it is Instagram ‘s fault for Boozie losing out on biz from IG. The old school rapper claims that it was not his fault that he was banned. The fact of the matter is that Boozie is a pervert and posted some pretty bizarre things about his son — all of which got him banned from the platform for promoting those things. No official word on whether or not Facebook will even respond to the lawsuit. Boozie maintains that he has lost millions in revenue because of the ban.

Zuckerberg responds to Cambridge Analytica scandal

Americans are threatening cops on Facebook, and, facing the consequences

Is Free Speech really a thing in America? That's the million dollar question this week after dozens across America were arrested in sweeping actions to protect the "good name" of police. According to reports,  specifically the Intercept, people from Connetcticut to Michigan, were arrested after either blatantly calling for the "murder of cops" or posting alarming things on Facebook about harming members of American law enforcement. “If someone threatens to kill the president, that person would be arrested and prosecuted," Detroit Police Chief James Craig tells the News. "How is it any different when someone threatens to kill white cops?” A Detroit law professor counters: “Posting that kind of thing on social media is a bad thought, but having a bad thought isn’t necessarily a crime.” ...

Is it time to start worrying about Facebook ?

A new New York Times editorial poses an interesting question: Is it time to start worrying about the social power and influence of Facebook? That's what one editorial writer poses in the Times out Thursday arguing that "Facebook essentially has the power to shape the events that occur in our world".. Which could be a danger to some.  In 2010, an interesting study was published revealing how Facebook was able to simply get people to vote only by merely showing them their friends had. "Many mainstream outlets have a rigorous set of rules and norms about what’s acceptable and what’s not in the news business," Farhad Manjoo writes in the Times editorial. The scary thing about Facebook? Neither its users nor the company itself actually identify the company as a media organization --  desp...

Facebook: Stop defacing our “Black Lives Matter” walls

MENLO PARK, CALIF --  Facebook -- the sometimey place of "Free Speech" and other things is also the same place where "Black Lives Matter" is drawn on certain walls throughout its campus. However, some aren't all that fond of the writings -- because -- they believe "All Lives Matter" (although, Zuckerburg, per a memo thinks otherwise sort of). Per a memo obtained by Gizmodo,  Zuckerburg has now "stood out" demanding that the walls stop being defaced. "There have been several instances in which walls have been defaced" per Zuckerburg, who in the past, tried to quell the problem. But, it continued after some workers decided to  cross "BLM" out and write All Lives Matter. Facebook's staff is approximately 2% black.
