Facebook is the largest social media network in the world. As the most popular choice of social media networks in the world comes with lots of controversies and criticism.
From the fake accounts and AD fraud to the continued controversy over censorship and Facebook algorithm, the top social media has many pointed fingers at it. Other criticisms include refusing to police political speech on Facebook, accessing information without permission, and its apparent ‘not so obvious’ coziness with the Trump administration.
Sacha Baron Cohen, a comic, writer, and actor, has expressed his feelings toward this social media platform. He described Facebook as the “greatest propaganda machine in history.” His persuasive speech to the Anti-Defamation League traveled worldwide very fast. Cohen’s propaganda against Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, keeps going ever since his last year’s speech in November.
Elon Musk Thinks That “Facebook is Lame”
“We don’t let 1 person control the water for 2.5 billion people. We don’t let 1 person control electricity for 2.5 billion people. Why do we let 1 man control the information seen by 2.5 billion people? Facebook needs to be regulated by governments, not ruled by an emperor!” tweeted Cohen recently.
His tweet was, however, backed up by Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla. “#DeleteFacebook, it’s lame,” tweeted Musk himself on Saturday morning. His message was short and straightforward and obvious.
You might think his tweet was sudden, but Musk shared his opinion about Facebook a long time ago, back in 2018. He criticized the social media platform after he deleted all his companies’ Facebook pages because he doesn’t “like Facebook. Gives me the willies. Sorry.” Both Musk and Zuckerberg have had other divergencies in the past regarding artificial intelligence (AI) facts. Zuckerberg and other researchers from his team have tried to convince Musk that there were no potential dangers of AI; however, his efforts were in vain.
