Facebook does nothing to stop the breeding of hatred and false information on its platform. The abuse it carries against migrants and against The Squad, is reprehensible, and what’s worse, this is how Facebook makes its money. Those things create emotion-driven traffic and stimulate the creation of zealots and the equivalent of virtual riots on its platform. That traffic on a single day is worth $billions.

Facebook encourages misogyny, racism and sexual violence because these things create emotionally-compelled  engagement. Facebook is now full of abuse of minority women who have become Congresswomen. The Squad.

Facebook is extremely unhealthy for society because it is deliberately mismanaged for financial gain. It is a criminal organization with impunity. Stay off Facebook and for sure delete your account. I did.

And when a huge American corporation fights back against fines by encouraging or just allowing users to belittle, berate, abuse and harass four congressmen, The Squad, because they are women, and because it can, you know it is a pariah and not a friend. Walk away. Delete your account.

That’s the impact on Facebook of a US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) fine after revelations last year abut the Cambridge Analytica company’s leverage from Facebook over the American elections.

This political consultancy in the UK, Cambridge Analytica, that was hired by US President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign, was given by Facebook the personal information of American voters to help Donald Trump, an infamous con artist, win the Presidential election in 2016.

Representative David Cicilline, chair of a US Congressional antitrust panel, called the $5 billion fine an early Christmas present.

“It’s very disappointing that such an enormously powerful company that engaged in such serious misconduct is getting a slap on the wrist. This fine is a fraction of Facebook’s annual revenue. It won’t make them think twice about their responsibility to protect user data,” said Rep. David Cicilline in a statement.

Mr. Cicilline is correct about one thing. Because its profits are so enormous, $5 billion isn’t even a butterfly sneeze to Facebook.

No matter what anyone tells you, Facebook is not safe for children and youth and it is a hazard to the mental health of all ages.

Why women and children should leave Facebook for their own safety.

If you spent the same time you put into Facebook as face-time with your family & friends, your life & the world would be much better.

Facebook encourages you to be someone else, in other words, the better version of yourself that you cannot be in the real world. You  end up, however, being completely isolated from the real world because the useless people you are talking to have nothing useful or real to share and may end up wasting as much of your precious time as they have wasted of theirs.

If you have neither friends nor family but used the time you spend on Facebook to join group-oriented activities, your life would be much better.

Here are some facts you may or may not realize. The links are the sources of the data.

  1. Facebook is a hornet’s nest of abuse, bullying, harassment, hatred, racism, brainwashing, fake news, and misogyny. For these reasons it is unhealthy.
  2. Facebook has become a repository for millions of predators, narcissists, scammers and spies hence it is wasting your time with useless people who will never be your real friends. They, like Facebook executives, see you as one of two things, exploitable or disposable.
  3. Cambridge Analytica,  the British political data-mining firm was allowed by Facebook to exploit the personal data of millions of Facebook users
  4. Facebook appears to be manipulated by the US government to limit some content that it does not want you to be know about. 
  5. Facebook has sold its services to “so-called enemies of its own nation” for the purpose of changing election results.
  6. Facebook content is out of control. Take for example the recent photographs submitted by the US Customs and Border Patrol showing (The Squad) American Congresswomen performing random sexual acts on the US President.
  7. Facebook content includes extensive content from law enforcement professionals and government officials that is racist and hateful.
  8. Gender-based violence including rape has always been the feature attraction of this site and you can imagine what kind of user that attracts.
  9. Facebook reads your mail, posts and notes to sense your emotions and then uses psychological tricks to create selling  tools for advertisers.
  10. Facebook executives sell your feelings of inadequacy and your anxiety to advertisers while it pumps up the volume on cool, trendy expensive gadgets, cars, clothes and homes you do not have.
  11. Facebook doesn’t offer anything of value, it takes your content which it then owns  and uses that as its value. It then sells your content to anyone who will buy that content.
  12. Facebook is not a social media site, it is an advertising company and advertising money is its sole focus. The Facebook corporation is motivated to make you addicted to spending many hours if your time on their advertising platform while collecting as much information about you as possible. That is not healthy for you in so many ways.

The people using Facebook more than five hours a day tend to be somewhat disturbed individuals, or persons with wrongful purpose. They are mining your data and some will even be pretending to be you and using your information to assist an identity theft for the purpose of stealing or creating bogus credit cards, credit purchases and loans accounts–fraud in other words.

The trend today is away from exploitative operations like Facebook and instead using encrypted Huawei, Android or iPhone applications that the user controls.

Here is what a few women trendsetters are saying. FPMag quotes Readers Digest and The Guardian.


Why I Quit Facebook and Instagram—and I’m Never Going Back

by Charlotte GraingerReader’s Digest

In December, Facebook’s own researchers publicly questioned if the site could potentially be a threat to the public’s mental health; that was the straw that broke the camel’s back for me. I’d already been mulling over the notion of whether to quit or not for months, but this little nugget of news was the clincher; I was done. Continue reading in a new tab… 


Is 2019 the year you should finally quit Facebook?”

“Prepare yourself for an overwhelming sense of deja vu: another Facebookprivacy “scandal” is upon us,” writes Arwa.

“A New York Times investigation has found that Facebook gave Netflix, Spotify and the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) the ability to read, write and delete users’ private messages. The Times investigation, based on hundreds of pages of internal Facebook documents, also found that Facebook gave 150 partners more access to user data than previously disclosed. Microsoft, Sony and Amazon, for example, could obtain the contact information of their users’ friends,” she adds. Continue reading in a new tab…

Keep your kids away from Facebook and away from Law Enforcement. Family first.

One might expect that law enforcement professionals like the USA Customs and Border Patrol in their Facebook Group would know not to publish violence against non-white women and children. Or anyone!

But when you look at the actual conduct of this law enforcement group, the way it is led from the White House, and the impact it has on innocent migrant people who are down on their luck and vulnerable, especially women and children, it is no surprise at all.

Children are best advised to trust parents and guardians above all other persons in developed nations, including avoidance of any form of law enforcement. Globally, children should not trust any form of law enforcement. Family first. If someone tries to touch you in a place your bathing suit covers, scream loudly and run away from danger; away from strangers; and toward family and safety. Family first.

That is proven advise by the women and their younger volunteers who have been fighting for the safety of women and children around the world for almost a decade.

Author’s note: Did you ever have the opportunity to counsel a child rape survivor? Until you have that experience, don’t even think you have walked at all in my shoes. But please do think about what that might be like before you even move one  smidgen toward enabling sexual or any kind of violence toward any person, adult or child. Melissa

The RINJ Foundation is a global women’s Civil Society Group that according to Katie Alsop, a director of RINJ, has a case filed and accepted by the United Nations Human Rights High Commissioner. The RINJ group is preparing for an international hearing by conducting further investigations.

Meanwhile, a very nice nurse named Sharon told me, “Keep your kids away from Facebook and away from Law Enforcement,” family first, she added.

She then said, “Talk to your mom today,” and I saw the tears on her cheeks.

“Where I live,” she continued, “a rape survivor going to law enforcement might well be raped by them too.

It looks like it is the same in the USA.

Just look at the Facebook 10-15 group of cops.


“Working past the patients who have been intimidated into silence,” Katie Alsop says, “there are others who have already lost so much to the Trump administration policy of child confiscation that it seems to victims that there is nothing more the USA can do to pressure their silence.

Facebook executives have been violating the rights of women and children since 2004. This is a very strong argument for parents to absolutely keep children away from Facebook, no matter their age.

The RINJ Foundation has been to war with Facebook for many years because of the social media site’s past proclivity to use videos of children being raped by college boys as a means for drawing huge audiences.

Facebook accepts the content of its users as content that it will sell to advertisers based on the number of times a large number of people request the object with their browser on their device. It’s content from 2004 to 2011 continued to grow more misogynistic and more violent. The RINJ Foundation has gigabytes of data stored from those years that would shock anyone.

Facebook finally reacted 4 November 2011 when challenged by thousands of signatures on a RINJ petition. It wrote programming code to insert the word “Humor” at the end of the headliner for each rape page and pro-rape Facebook Group. Basically, Facebook was saying that rape is a joke.

RINJ’s global @RapeIsNoJoke campaign then redirected to boycott advertisers whose ads appeared on Rape-Page content of Facebook generating hundreds of millions of US dollars.

In fact among a gang of males who beat up a young RINJ volunteer worker at a McDonald’s restaurant in Toronto, one man claimed that the cost to Facebook of the @RapeIsNoJoke campaign going after advertisers was over $100 million.

Many males as usual had been antagonized by thousands of angry RINJ teens and women demanding that sexual violence content be criminalized and not used as a Facebook rape-cultural mechanism for raising audiences and making money.

The images and videos set out below are sad, gruesome and some are violent. FPMag both warns and apologizes that once again it must warn parents to keep children and young adults away from Social Media.

The people who joke about this crime, and mime this crime, also commit this crime and use Facebook and other social media to lure victims.

Meanwhile the sexist angle of the US Customs and Border Patrol is what RINJ has seen already but now, added to the case is Facebook as a major contributor to the rape culture and the human rights abuses set out in the RINJ Foundation’s Human Rights case against the USA and the Donald Trump Administration.

Having a US President saying things that children should never hear is one thing but when the police, and I mean many branches of police are publishing pictures of four congress persons with their US President performing sex acts, that’s it. No more Facebook. This has a long history.

This is the group of people who have become the violent throwing arm of the US White House. The Customs and Border Patrol.

If we publish the images we found to be offensive we will get this account deleted apparently, but Facebook has the images and its advertisers are being exposed to millions of viewers. Perverts.

The Confiscation of migrant children at the US/Mexico border has been bad enough. But now that the Customs and Border Patrol is involved in attacking the Congress women and Facebook is selling advertising on that pornographic content, RINJ cannot accept the dangers to women and children.

Instead of publishing the content of these Facebook groups, FPMag suggests readers consider: How to delete your Facebook Account and why you should.


Parents of migrant children endangered in unstable Central American homelands sought asylum in the USA.

Under Trump policy children are confiscated from parents (said Jeff Sessions in 2018) & often abused (says ACLU) & lost by Homeland Security/ORR (said HSS’s Steven Wagner).

This is a Trump deterrence to future migrants says Trump Former CoS John Kelly.

Trump policy confiscated 658 migrant children in 13 days of May 2018. It got worse from there.

Where are 2018 May’s migrant children?

Many were still in custody in May 2019. In this, the Trump Administration is guilty of crimes against humanity and has been joined by its large money-making corporate groups like Facebook which exploit anything for a dollar.
