This is a message for the shareholders, not anyone else. It’s so cynical even I’m put off, and that’s no easy task.

I deeply hope 2019 is the year Facebook gets broken up into evil-but-more-manageable chunks.

If anyone is looking for an easy New Year’s resolution, deleting Facebook is a good one.

It takes 30 days before it is gone.
Most resolutions are broken before then, right?

Not sure if /s.

True. He really has no choice but to say this sort of crap, which basically makes him a robot. I’m not gonna go so far as to say he’s an “AI”, 'cause he’d only qualify for the “A” part of that term, so I’ll settle on “robot”. He’s self-back-patting robot.

This is possibly the most cynical shit ever, protecting users’ data is impossible when you’re selling it to everyone who wants it and that is in fact the foundation of the whole thing. This can never be fixed.

Fucking hell.

Yeah, but they can make certain that only people who have paid for your info can access it :wink:

I do not disagree, but this sort of shareholder whispering is pretty standard.

Every CEO I have worked under have said stuff just as baldly false. “We are doing great, everything is fine!” Every time, even as things are tanking.

Exactly, I have no idea why anyone assumes any shred of honesty when it comes from a guy whose words control the company’s stock price.

If the CEO at an 80-person company I worked for could smile and tell everyone how awesomely the company is doing and how bright its future is at our office Christmas party, the day before canning half of the staff, the head of a jillion-dollar mega-corp isn’t exactly going to be more honest.

Facebooklets, as it were.

I just hope 2019 is free from mouths-for-eyes.
