Good on them for cleaning it up. Same with Twitter, for that matter.

That being said, Facebook's problem is a foundational one: their product has more competitors than ever. "Kids these days" don't use FB, preferring SnapChat instead, and considering FB as their parents' app for some time.

Unless it branches out to some other marketable functionality, it will devolve in the same manner as Friendster and MySpace before it.

He's an unimpressive billionaire. I never thought we'd devolve to the point where the guy running the kitty cat picture website gets grilled by Congress. And a for show grilling at that as he has paid off the committee.

You know what you call an unimpressive billionaire? A billionaire who has done more than any of us.

Weren't you one of the ones saying Trump's achievements were unimpressive?

In the age before cable, there was an iconic sci-fi program called The Outer Limits whose opening featured a series of test patterns; flickering screens; and a narrator who solemnly intoned, "Do not attempt to adjust your television set. We will control all that you see and hear." Today, that is a chilling reality as social media giant Facebook censors what fans of social media icons Diamond and Silk, aka Lynette Hardaway and her sister Rochelle Richardson, see and hear from this dynamic pair of black conservative women on Facebook.

Racism is a term too easily bandied about these days, particularly by social progressives seeking to silence conservative thought and opinion which they deemed inherently racist in their chants of "white privilege." Yet it is precisely the term liberals would use if, say, Michelle Obama or the likes of Maxine Waters were treated this way, their words censored because they were deemed "unsafe" to the community." Indeed, Diamond and Silk themselves haVE raised the possibility that racism might be afoot here:

Instagram is the app du jour. Attention spans will soon hop to something else though.

Maybe you have created a publicly traded company and are actually a billionaire? I’m guessing not.

You obviously have no idea how Facebook came about being. Not just because you're generally ignorant AF, must have missed the documentary on it.

VisorBoy is one of the folks who's "intolerant of intolerance" and can't see the obvious conflict in his position.

He's not afraid to offend you when he tells you you're being offensive (as he censors you).

so you are against free speech? really? Cleaning up by who's standard, so far it appears on facebook if you are conservative or express any conservative views or like Trump your stuff is eliminated. That is a good plan?

People are mean to other people in real life also, not just online but to expect people to be civil in an anonymous message board which facebook and twitter are is not living in reality, not sure though who is ever FORCED to use any platform or read any of it

Once again....Big Government to the rescue to save people from themselves.

Some thing called the browser act is being pushed that will ensure the US Gov has regulatory control over online services.

I guess we forget that when you sign up for a free service and have to agree to their terms you are agreeing to play by their rules. If their rules say that anything you post on their service becomes their property, then everything you post belongs to them. You don't want to give ownership of your cat pictures to little Markie.....don't post them to facebook where the terms of service say it belongs to them. The fact that you didn't read and understand the terms, doesn't change the fact that you agreed to them and are therefore bound by them.

If you don't pay for it you are the product, not the customer. With that in mind, the internet could be different in 10 years... likely not, but it could be.

I don't think this covers the breadth of problems. They're also collecting data on user who haven't accepted their terms. Google is a worse offender here as Google Analytics is in every major and mid site. All the ones that want to be found at least.

It's an old saying that's particularly applicable to Democrat, rent-seeking voters

no, if you are on a social media site you have accepted their terms, if you do not then you are not on the site. of course nobody reads them
