[liberationtech] Boston event: How nonprofits can use Facebook to broadcast their impact??? (Feb 27th)

As much as I value privacy and I hate Facebook, I think your message contains critical fallacies on so many levels...

First, I'm not sure Mark Zuckerberg is a sociopath — and certainly I don't have any evidence to claim so.

Second, couldn't it be possible that the group simply was not reported (small group) and therefore not noticed until the transmission ended? We are just making assumptions here.

Third, are you suggesting Facebook should be permanently blocked?
