Losing control over the narrative must be truly terrifying.

I have one better. Do not listen to ANY OF THESE PEOPLE when it comes to FB.
Scott Galloway: While I find professor Gallaway really funny and sometimes he makes great points there is a tremendous hypocrisy considering he is also a Facebook shareholder. Why should I take morality lessons from someone who profits from "pouring mercury on our rivers". Notice how he tries to change the topic when the interviewer tells him that he owns the stock.
CNBC: How many times are you going to bring these people to bash Facebook without even disclosing that your parent company has a substantial investment in Snapchat who happens to be Facebook main "competitor".
Jason Calacanis: Yes, I saved the best for last.
This is a person who got destroyed by Google and FB early in the 00s and has been bashing them every time he gets yet he is also a former shareholder.... are you going to give your gains to charity, or are you going to profit from "pouring mercury on our rivers" too?
Remember he is the same guy who got in business with Travis Kalanick the same guy who yelled at some hard working man for not being responsible enough (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTEDYCkNqns), the same guy who. fostered a corrosive corporate culture, a man who had complete disregard for the law in America and abroad, etc, etc, etc. Also, he is not only a hypocrite but also an ignorant person. Whole Foods is not this company who is "looking for you" they are own by Amazon, a company who happens to have a plethora of issues regarding working conditions, a company who happens to have a microphone in our houses with Alexa, etc, etc. Finally, Apple the same company who is trying to portrait itself as a champion of privacy yet not too long ago gave the keys of all China-based iCloud users to the Chinese government (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-apple-icloud-insight/apple-moves-to-store-icloud-keys-in-china-raising-human-rights-fears-idUSKCN1G8060) with so many issues that may be the roots of mental problems the idea of implying that Instagram has a significant impact is just ridiculous.... society is telling you jack Jason the numbers stayed strong in the last report you are the one trying to position yourself at the expense of other people. I can go on, and on...
Please, give me a break. Not a single company is perfect not FB nor Microsoft or any other that may come to mind but this is just ridiculous.

If Facebook is evil for getting their users to spend as much time on Facebook as possible, then grocery stores are evil for getting their shoppers to spend as much time in the store as possible. Don't trust big grocery kids!!

Jason Calacanis should keep his mouth shut, Uber heavily relies on Facebook's user validation platform, and I'm sure his other investments depend on the Facebook ecosystem for something
