What useres? Everyone will jump ship when they have to pay for this shit.

But maybe I am mistaken, those who feel for muh Amazon spy divce and "one click buy" will just stay.

I had a brief conversation with my wife on the Amazon spy mics. She is appalled that so many people bought a device designed to spy on you. I mentioned that we were having that conversation in range of 2 smart phones. She paused, accepted my statement, and said "Yes, but at least phones weren't designed and marketed to spy on you."

The point: Yes, you are mistaken. People really are that dumb. Most people love their cage as long as it is comfortable enough. Even me. I sit in my house, pay all the taxes, and work some b.s. job to "earn" fiat to pay those taxes while completely aware that the job is just to remove my free time and give me something to do during the day.

But, maybe I'm mistaken. I could just be overly cynical.

You're not overly cynical. We are serfs. Corporations are our lords. We live in complete feudalism. We are the products of everything. Government gets us to pay them to cage us up and attack us. We work so we can pay to rent for our property, which we don't ever own. Correct about fiat. We pay interest for something with no value. We pay money to listen to Hollyweird tell us we are white supremacists and we need to be killed. Laws are always being created to build us a stronger cage and so on. Why are we so willing to be slaves and beaten?

Yup, thats just about it, but unlike in the past the controlling powers learnd, aslong you keep the average peasant fed enough, they won't rise up, which in a way is worse.

I almost missed this comment that was buried in all the Voat Elite subscriber comments. It's nice having all the peon account comments automatically collapsed and shadow downvoated. Voat Elite membership is worth every shekel.

It never was yours, faggot. You've always been the product. You gave that shit away to live out your pathetic narcissistic and voyeuristic fantasies.

That may be true for the faggots on Facebook. I give away nothing, faggot.

Zuckerberg is a monster, but no social media business can be a charity. Services need some cash to pay for servers and employees and need to have some kind of business model to exist. Wikipedia is kind of the same way, they just run on donations and lots of volunteer labor rather than ads or direct payments.

Unless Facebook can raise donations, sell ads, or sell some kind of service, they can’t exist. Maybe some kind of fee to users is preferable to intrusive ads. Facebook is bad, but even to exist in a limited form they need some kind of business model.

My suggestion if you dislike FB, propose a better business model for them or a similar service that works.

I think that FB didn't disclose freely what they did with the information folks give up so freely.

Personally, I don't care, I'm not on it.

Admittedly, how do you pay for the servers you need to run the site unless you monetize your views somehow? One reason for distributed p2p-based platforms.

It's almost like they need money and you either give them data to sell or you pay them

You see ads anyway by them selecting the content for you to see that they like (liberal), and hiding content they don't want you to see (conservative).
