The Democrat Media Complex has its metaphorical guns trained on Twitter.
And tech giants that are behaving badly seem to be getting a pass from the media.
Now a damning report shows Facebook was guilty of one scandal that will absolutely terrify you.
A lot of attention has been paid to Twitter because of Elon Musk’s purchase of the platform.
Twitter is the preferred platform of the establishment because that’s where the propaganda spreads the quickest.
Meanwhile, Facebook has been mired in actual scandals.
Over two dozen at Facebook reportedly took bribes to takeover users’ accounts
The company has been breaking election advertising laws, violating users’ privacy, and censoring data at the behest of the federal government, among other nefarious activities.
Now the company was caught taking bribes to hijack people’s Facebook accounts.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Facebook parent company Meta “has fired or disciplined more than two dozen employees and contractors over the last year whom it accused of improperly taking over user accounts, in some cases allegedly for bribes, according to people familiar with the matter and documents viewed by The Wall Street Journal. Some of those fired were contractors who worked as security guards stationed at Meta facilities and were given access to the Facebook parent’s internal mechanism for employees to help users having trouble with their accounts…”
Like many social media and tech companies, Facebook is also set to purge thousands of employees.
Many tech companies got bloated during COVID because so much commerce was conducted online with businesses shut down.
Now that the pandemic is effectively over, tech companies are trimming the fat.
The Journal added that “[t]he mechanism, known internally as ‘Oops,’ has existed since Facebook’s early years as a means for employees to help users they know who have forgotten their passwords or emails, or had their accounts taken over by hackers. As part of the alleged abuse of the system, Meta says that in some cases workers accepted thousands of dollars in bribes from outside hackers to access user accounts, the people and documents say. The disciplinary actions are part of a lengthy internal probe led by Meta executives…”
“Oops,” which stands for Online Operations, is generally a service reserved for people very close to Facebook employees or public figures when automated means at issues like password resets fail.
But Facebook employees essentially created a black market by selling the Oops service to anyone willing to pay.
While everyone is focused on Twitter, Facebook is rife with problems, but the company has been allowed to fly under the radar.
