Four years ago,
when we created this online platform with our social network, it was designed as an alternative to Facebook.
No data mining, no commercial advertising, no fake likes, no fake profiles, no surveliance. It is still fascinating for me how many of the people that agree on the argument that FB is very problematic still post on FB- very regularly. When I talk to my friends, usually the argument goes like this: "You are right, FB is very problematic, BUT it is very convenient and because everyone is there I can reach all of my friends easily."
Well, you thought so..
fake likes, global click farms and enforced scarsity of visibility... facebook's twisted like machine

The Internet as we know it is dying
How Facebook and Google are killing the classic Internet and reinventing it in their image
"Editorial decisions are at the mercy of algorithms that determine how and where traffic flows, and, consequently, the lifeblood of advertising revenue. A tweak in the algorithm and boom: You’re out of business. There’s nothing organic about building success online; there’s only the live-or-die question of whether you’ve properly cracked the code."

Where are the Occupy protesters now?
Social media makes it easier and cheaper to build movements quickly – but bypassing the business of creating decision-making infrastructure means they can disappear just as fast
