Facebook Blocked my Zuckerberg Post?

by Steve MacDonald April 12, 2018

GraniteGrok auto posts articles directly to our facebook page but not the one I wrote last night about Mark Zuckerberger-Meister Berger. Probably just a glitch of some sort. I wonder if they’ll find some reason not to post this one?

FB: Abandon Privacy All Ye Who Enter

by Mike March 25, 2018

No thinking person puts their most personal information on FaceBook, but that still leaves a large slice of the population willing to abandon privacy….

In Its Rush To Please Ruling Class Progressives, Facebook Sort of, Kind of, Screws Itself

by Steve MacDonald February 5, 2018

Remember when Facebook was super-giddy-helpful with announcing that the Russians were using Facebook Ads to influence the 2016 Elections? Hey, progressives look at us pimping the narrative du jour! Well, someone in Seattle realized Facebook was collecting cash (probably a lot of cash) for political ads and failing to properly report who was buying those ads as […]

A Visitor From the Past

by Steve MacDonald December 11, 2017

Everyone is sending this with the well worn “must watch.” I don’t typically open anything that says must read or view things that say “must watch” (just so you now) but this seems to be grabbing a lot of attention. It is a video portrayal of a Poem called “A visitor from the past.” It could trigger a lot of […]

Thumbnail image for Facebook “Trending News” Scandal Gets a Status Update

Facebook’s fiddling with what appears to be a trending topic has had a ‘status update.’ An instruction guide published by The Guardian on Thursday shows that from start to finish the Trending Topics sidebar was designed to allow a small group of Facebook “news curators” to elevate, or suppress, topics and outlets. The Guardian has documents outlining […]

Something Only Liberals Were Not Aware Of…Facebook Censors Conservative News

by Steve MacDonald May 10, 2016
Thumbnail image for Something Only Liberals Were Not Aware Of…Facebook Censors Conservative News

There’s nothing surprising about a liberal media platform like Facebook censoring content it opposes. Heck, there’s nothing wrong with Facebook censoring content of any kind, for any reason. Facebook can do whatever it wants. What is surprising is that Gizmodo, a tech-arm of the left-leaning Gawker universe, actually published a story in which former Facebook […]

AoSHQ | It’s hard to connect the dots when you refuse to acknowledge the dots exist. Fearing a civil liberties backlash and “bad public relations” for the Obama administration, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson refused in early 2014 to end a secret U.S. policy that prohibited immigration officials from reviewing the social media messages of […]
