A platform is a “Social Network” consisting of two parts: [Social] “connections” and [Network] “data” that Facebook harvests / sells. Facebook fraudulently claims it is a “platform for all ideas” while also claiming it has a “set of values” (bias) that inform users of what to “read, trust and share” therefore it is not a “neutral public forum” and not subject to CDA immunity.
“News feed is a product” in which “the first posts are more valuable than the 3000th post”. Facebook reduced the value of organic reach in order to increase the value of paid reach. Facebook’s “strategy” is to create deliberately vague, all-encompassing “terms” such as “click bait, spam, low quality, inauthentic, fake, sensational or bad actor” “in order to reduce the distribution”, “reduce the spread of problematic content…that might not violate [their] community standards”, “remove their ability to advertise” “removed their ability to monetize” in order to “reduce the economic incentives” of competitive businesses who do not “sponsor” Facebook.
Facebook baited users and publishers onto the platform by purportedly claiming it to be a “free” platform then switched to a pay to play advertising business model which directly competes with its own users and publishers. Facebook “makes money” from its “partnered” advertisers (sponsors). Facebook’s “strategy” is to “displace” “low quality”, “problematic” (organic, low value) publisher content (like Fyk’s) by removing user-solicited content from the news feed and instead “placing” its own unsolicited, financially incentivized (paid), typically commercial (spam) Facebook “partnered” advertising sponsor.
Plaintiff, Jason Fyk (“Fyk”), respectfully brings this action for damages and relief against Defendant, Facebook, Inc. (“Facebook”), and alleges as follows:1
NATURE OF THE ACTION
1. This case asks whether Facebook can, without consequence, engage in brazen tortious, unfair and anti-competitive, extortionate, and/or fraudulent practices that caused the build-up (through years of hard work and entrepreneurship) and subsequent destruction of Fyk’s multi-million dollar business with over 25,000,000 followers merely because Facebook “owns” its “free” social media platform.
“Accuse Your Enemy Of What You Are Doing, As You Are Doing It To Create Confusion”
I’m a failure! I have failed so many times in life that it’s hard to qualify myself as anything but a failure. But, just like Winston Churchill said, it’s not about failing, it’s about not losing the enthusiasm to keep going. With each failure you learn something and you grow… well most of us do. We all strive for the American Dream. Even if you’re not from America, you still strive for the comfort and stability that success brings with it.
Many if not all people fail in life. It’s more of a certainty that you will fail but if you continue forward, a failure can become a success. It’s how we deal with our failures that define who we are and what we become. I am a failure! I’m not embarrassed to admit it. I’ve failed most of my life, but I have not lost my enthusiasm and that is what has led to my ultimate success.
Really covers how bad the BCDC system is. I picked the book up and read it in one sittign and I’m glad I did!Carl
I was fortunate enough to get a copy of this book early and to give it a read. The story is one of overcoming obstacles that should not have been there to begin with. On the surface, Jason appears to have it all; a wonderful family, a nice house, riches beyond many people’s dreams, a social media empire, cars, boats, and so much more.Ffej
