Well, Muchachos E muchachas obviously, this is not my voice, but rather one produced by AI. I am currently resting and healing my vocal cords from laryngitis…. BUT there’s too much happening int the world for me to not have my say in it… so… for now, this is how I will communicate to you. Temporarily.
Yesterday, a catastrophic global outage occurred that had people scratching their head. What was going on? What was the cause? Facebook, instagram, whatsapp, telegram slowing …Well, my dear muchachos, we still do not know FOR CERTAIN, but for now there are some context clues id like to bring up to your attention, before I’d like to thank my sponsor for this video
Ok so what do we know? Well to begin with, apparently there resounded a “facebook whistleblower” with the intentions of testifying before congress… now hold on there … many have thought, WHAT A COINCIDENCE, but I’m not thinking so much. Her testimony came out today and it seemed to me like she was calling for MORE censorship on these platforms
There is additional speculation on her motives, as best put by the Post Millenial:
Jack Posobiec and Human Events highlighted this contrast of treatment. Along with mentioning that Frances Haugen is represented by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s PR firm, and is traveling to Europe soon to testify for the EU parliament.
Her views on free speech aside, the issue is worth exploring deeper.
On Tuesday, Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen testified before a Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection about the situation inside the company.
People are questioning the motivations of Haugen as it has been reported that she is “getting strategic guidance” from former Obama deputy press secretary Bill Burton and his consulting firm.
This alongside a history of donations to leftist groups including many linked to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Well, that was today, lets take it back to yesterday. The morning erupted on twitter as instagram and facebook users scrambled to find some solace in knowing why they couldn’t post only to learn that there was a global outage
So what happened? Well although we would love for that to be clear, truth is we still don’t quite know what the cause was exactly. I found it interesting that in the midst of the shenanigans, it was reported that the data of facebook users were being auctioned off at
From sputnik news:
In late September, an announcement was posted on a hacking forum that claimed to have the name, email, phone number, location, gender, and user ID of 1.5 billion Facebook users. One prospective buyer has allegedly been quoted at $5,000 per 1 million Facebook accounts. This would value the entire set of Facebook user data at $7.5 million.
In a subsequent post, the seller alleges to represented a large company that works to scrape Facebook for data. The seller adds that the company has been in operation for at least four years and has over 18,000 clients.
But on a different account of events, facebook completely denied that any malicious activity occurred, that there was an engineering glitch:
According to the daily mail
Facebook has said there was ‘no malicious activity’ behind a seven-hour blackout that cost the company an estimated $100million in lost revenue, which experts and insiders say was exacerbated by remote working policies.
The global outage – which hit Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger on Monday – was caused when the faulty configuration disconnected its servers from the internet, meaning engineers had to travel to its Santa Clara data center to fix the glitch in-person.
Whatever the cause was, it also trickled to employees who could not even access work buildings or meeting rooms as their badges wouldn’t work
We may have been out of loss of a few hours of usage, but your boy Zuckerberg was out 7 billion dollars.
A selloff sent the social-media giant’s stock plummeting 4.9% on Monday, adding to a drop of about 15% since mid-September.
The stock slide on Monday sent Zuckerberg’s worth down to $121.6 billion, dropping him below Bill Gates to No. 5 on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. He’s down from almost $140 billion in a matter of weeks, according to the index.
After it all is said and done for now, coming back to Frances Hogan’s testimony to congress, it came out today that Facebook actually called for governmental regulation and a set of “new internet rules”….. do you see why people were skeptical of her?
What are your thoughts of the global outage? do you think this is just preparation for something much bigger to come? Leave your thoughts in the comments below
Until next time…
