    What are the current best conspiracy theories about Facebook that I should share with people to get them off of Facebook

    That its Facebook.

    A giant Corporation that pilfers your personal data and sells it to advertisers and various unsavory characters to use against you. All the while being owned and run by a borderline sociopath creep named Mark Zuckerberg, who will do anything to increase his power over them.

    Facebook literally makes you feel depressed... but maybe instead of using the actual research data, blame it on lizard people with regenerative microwave bananas

    They're making you depressed intentionally in order to harvest your depression. Because sad people buy things which they can then advertise to you

    Is it a conspiracy theory if it’s true?

    Their business incentive is literally to get you to click more and spend more time on their platform, regardless of whether it is good for your physical or mental health. And all evidence says it's not. And also the evidence says that the main ways to drive engagement are bad for both people and society.

    Yes. But those ones aren't that much fun to talk about.

    I find it hilarious that it's been a conspiracy theory since the 90s that Crypto AG was a front for the CIA.
    Well, it wasn't a front for the CIA. It was a front for the CIA and BND.

    Facebook makes me feel happy because it’s full of puppies and babies. I guess the algorithm is faulty.

    That’s okay, if you copy and paste / share this boiler plate sovcit disclaimer then you are protected from anything Facebook tries to do with your data.

    That entire article from the Washington Post was fantastic and really gripping read. It reminded me how much I was into spy stories as a kid and shed new light on foreign relations issues from history. Definitely recommend giving it a read if you have the time and subscription to the Post.

    As a German, I'm always kinda astonished when I read that our TLA does something impressive

    And this is certainly impressive

    Facebook makes me feel happy because it’s full of puppies and babies. I guess the algorithm is faulty.

    That's how I use reddit. I have a carefully curated selection of subs so that most of what I see is pets. Dogs and cats, puppies and kittens, parrots, cows frolicking in fields, and the occasional reptile.

    Facebook I never even considered using because I don't care about the minutiae of other peoples day to day lives and (happily) expect others to do the same for me. That's just my personal preference, though. I get why lots of people want to share on a big communal website and I wish Facebook wasn't so shitty so they could have that.

    I'm not saying we are going to have an autocratic dystopia, but things keep happening that look like they come from an autocratic dystopia.

    Televangelist selling colloidal silver to cure Coronavirus for $300.



    Off-the-shelf "dietary supplement" colloidal silver runs about $30 for that size package. Buying the same thing from a lab supply company will run about half of that.

    Colloidal silver is a very weak antibiotic and does nothing at all to viruses. It's a great way to stain your skin Smurf blue.

    I am intensely annoyed that that guy isn't at risk of winding up in prison over something like that.
