Facebook could have been the best thing on Internet. But the guys behind it have ruined it. It is now the antithesis of social networking.

Open Web

Facebook is killing the open web


Facebook does and again censor any content that it does not like, arbitarily, unilaterally, quite anti-socially. And no, I'm not talking about removing pictures of breastfeeding mothers.

Lies, misdirections

For promoting this all kinds of lies have been sewn together about how it does not violate net neutrality, how it will bring Internet to the remote areas that do not have Internet yet, how it can even be called a set of basic services, etc.
