  1. What Facebook fails to report is that they helped to promote sales of products on their platform by selling boosts for ads from many of these legitimate businesses. Facebook took a ton of money from boosting posts on their platform. They themselves created the “spam” that was out there. Sharing articles from other websites is what people do whether they are cutesy, fun puppy memes or political content. This is just another form of censorship of conservatives and what Zuckerberg fails to realize is that he has just dug his own grave for his businesses in social media. Not very smart on his part.
