    Yo I heard you guys like something called “privacy” or something? Well you got it! Now you’ll only be able to see your own comments on these videos. So innovative, right? -Zuck. xoxo

      Well, as long as someone tells me what I'm thinking, it's okay. The next time those voices in my head start making too much noise I can tell them to shut up and message me on Farcebook instead. Thanks Zuck.

    The second an add comes on I've programmed my brain to tune it out. The second a video sponsorship starts at the end of a video I'll have decided wether or not I like the content creator enough to listen. So basically 0-2% listening rate to 80% listening rate.

    Facebook still steals your data, Google hides conservative views, use DuckDuckGo, use Minds. Also Discord is still extremely used by people who want privatised messages.

    You fail to share how data is also shared with agencies, government and other important organisations.
    The data is not only to make money and create ads. It also to create a better psychological influence and exposing weaknesses about you.

    USA has invaded so many countries which resulted into millinions people dead in IRAQ, syria, lybia, afganistan, Banama and so on. Why can America use the name of their national security to freely do what they think is right? It is unfair for the whole world! Btw, do not forget Japanese Toshiba, French AlSTOM, which were bullied by USA in the name of do called national security. Stop making more lies.

    Zuckerberg is an IDIOT: He stole Facebook, Lost in court because he did steal facebook, and is stealing your trust. He is a slug, peddles Slug Defecation and those stupid enough to buy in, get what they deserve. The new Generation are growing up with Pacifiers in their mouth called Smart Phones. We are developing a generation of brainless slugs who are nothing but drones to big business. You think those companies care about you, if yes you make Zuckerberg look like the Genius of Geniuses in all history. All they care about is more money and they have no ethics about how they get more.

    And the latest on Farcebook's Messenger app - we have to "Accept" "Audio recording" in order to continue using the app, ostensibly it allows us to leave a message when using the Phone part of the app. Funny that they wouldn't give us the option to not use that and continue using it as before. Of course they wouldn't put it to any nefarious purposes. It's Farcebook after all. it's not like they've been busted for secretly conducting psych experiments on their customers or anything. Right? Yeah, right!

    Hey PolyMatter! Would you like to create a science and astronomy channel. It would be very good if you made a science channel as your graphics are very nice and the resources in the video are also very knowledgeable*. So it would attract more subs.
    Thank you.

    The Apple and Google dichotomy is just like the Democrats and Republicans...

    I think the main difference here is what the companies get caught doing. There’s plenty of articles about Google and Facebook getting caught selling data or being less secure than the advertise. Apple by no means is a saint, they’ve been caught doing anti-competitive, monopolistic practices. However, when it comes to your data, the worse I’ve seen is iCloud getting hacked and data being leaked.
    The key difference: Apple does what they can to secure your data, and the risk is a malicious user getting access to your account (2FA your accounts or lose them). Google and Facebook takes any data they can and sell it to advertisers, so using their services is what puts you at risk.
