Tandra Page 1553, Mark’s Product

Visit : 

I’m sitting on my back porch looking out over the yard as the rising sun brightens the Eastern sky.

“When the service is free, you are the product.”

Mark Zuckerberg was on Capitol Hill this past week on a Good Will Public Relations Tour. By all accounts, the Zuckerberg Tour was a success. A select few Congress People had a number of pointed questions for Mark, questions he dodged with a display of contrite humility but, by and large, the primary takeaway from the Zuckerberg Public Relations Tour was the vast majority of the old men asking questions had not a single clue as concerns the topic of which they were inquiring. It was obvious the questions these old guys were asking were questions written out for them by young Twenty-Somethings on their staff and that these old guys factually did not even understand the questions they were asking, never mind the answers Mark tossed back at them.

The takeaway from the Public Relations Tour in Congress is that Mark and his company have made a few minor and unintentional mistakes and all concerned are in full apology mode and Mark promised, in the future, to double down on his Liberal Regressive agenda and to exclude from Facebook anyone or organization that does not march with undiluted enthusiasm march in to lock step with his Liberal Regressive crusade. To show his sincerity, Mark’s standard for what is right and true and proper to be promoted on Facebook is The New York Times, that icon of Fake News and the Liberal Regressive Agenda.

Some, on the opposition side, are advocating the government step in and take over Facebook to assure evenhanded neutrality in the operation of Facebook. I might suggest that is a bad idea. Mark Zuckerberg may be a biased and unfair head of Facebook, but a government bureaucracy would be infinitely worse. You do not want the government managing your personal information, no way, no come, no how.

The simple solution to Facebook is another platform in competition with Facebook. This is, by admittance, a high wall to climb, but American history is littered with the bones of major companies that were once thought too big to fail. Wal-mart was, until recently, considered an economic powerhouse too big to fail. Then came Amazon, taking market share from Wal-mart. Now that Amazon is Big Dog on the block, everyone believes Amazon is too big to fail. But there is someone out there with an idea that will make Amazon obsolete. There is nothing less permanent than an economic powerhouse too big to fail.

Facebook is currently encountering financial problems and may be at the beginning of a permanent decline. Mark’s Public Relations Tour on Capitol Hill was less successful than he had hoped. Somewhere out there is the Next Big Thing that will replace Facebook and make it obsolete. We don’t need a government bureaucracy added to the mix.
