Hes trying to do two things.

  1. stop the hemorrhaging of his stock price.

  2. detract/decrease traffic from GOP and conservative sources.

I assume you mean that, if regulated, they can push the envelope as with the CA thing, and then just go "Oh, but we're regulated!" when caught.

no i mean this - https://www.dailywire.com/news/28313/study-heres-proof-facebooks-crushing-conservative-james-barrett

you are right though, if they do it themselves, unfairly, then they can claim 'oh we were self-regulating'.

Zuckerberg missed the bus on selling Facebook, but he won't face the music because he's so self absorbed that he'll sink with his ship before he realizes it's too late and will fade into obscurity, until he's the ebaumsworld of people.

I have a feeling he's trying to bait Trump into taking action that Zuck can turn around and sue over. Lost a bunch of money due to shitty company policies? Just create a situation where you're a victim and sue!

Keep in mind heads of Facebook, Youtube, Google, Twitter, and Reddit are all acting in lockstep with each other at this point. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Association

They're all in a literal circlejerk at the moment at the passage of FOSA which they helped ensure.

That is the original "Web 2.0" plan. Internet like a cable service. Purchase access to specific websites from a limited list. No more open internet. Total control. Facebook would be the permanent one and only social network. Likely would replace everything from email to texts and it has for most people by choice. So wrong. Short sentences.

Maybe for the over 30 crowd. FB hasn't been relevant for years. It is a desktop era website. All FB does now is buy apps the younger crowd uses and runs them into the ground. It is for children and their parents.

See: Facebook's "Free Basics" program, and its joint project with Microsoft to lay a cable under the Atlantic, and other shady global-scale dealings.

Facebook inc.'s "Free Basics" program for example essentially tried to monopolize all internet access for entire developing countries. Rejected by India after it was realized there what Facebook was trying to achieve. Facebook was trying to implement their own "web 2.0" plan as SolarBaby describes above. It's not that the "over 30 crowd" stopped them, it's that Facebook understood they couldn't pull their shit in most developed nations so they attempted to try their shady shit in areas with lessor regulations.

Facebook was rigged from the start. Their IPO was grossly overvalued and anyone else doing that wouldn't have gotten away with it.

If their IPO was grossly overvalued, then why is the stock up 400% since.

The IPO not their stock today. Initial public offering. It was overvalued. WTF do you think they backed up their value with? It was nothing. Nil. Zilch.

Make Facebook the next Microsoft. Every office is locked in to Microsoft Office formats. Lock every identity into Facebook.
