My friends, family and my regular readers know I’m no conspiracy theorist. But a conspiracy theorist works on evidence that is at best sketchy. Here we are in 2018 knowing that Facebook took ads against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign and was paid for these ads in Rubles. Rubles are the Russian currency and because of sanctions against Russia for its meddling and annexation of Crimea there are major restrictions about the use of that currency. Not being said I can understand how Facebook can look at us straight in the eyes and claim they had no idea this was from Russia.
Yes, Facebook is an active and living crime scene. I believe that it’s current PR campaign claiming that it plans to reduce the number of paid ads and increase the number of postings from friends and family is just a knee-jerk reaction to what they knew was going to be coming out in the media. This information is damning and we as Facebook, and former Facebook users, need to speak out to our Representatives about this. Yes Facebook has a quarter of the world’s population and its ecology but that doesn’t mean that it cannot be brought down.
