  3. You BBC are thinking you have power,the only power you have is to hide Jimmy savels crime. And Rob people of a licence to project lefty ideas and you all must be shut down or go on pay a subscription

  4. Facebook owns Instagram, WhatsApp and messenger so you are all still using it. I've been social media free for a while but if I go back to any of them it won't be any of those four.

  5. facebook destroying our society and countries' peacefulness. people should be delete their account from facebook

  6. It’s the fact that it’s a Two way communication tool that is under question here. If you give ppl freedom they will do what they want…isn’t that what we all want. The BBC have had the freedom to do what they want but only in a one way communication setup. Facebook isn’t an ideal tool yet but it will evolve into something great given time.

  11. 為什麼吃喝了那麼多年上帝的奶與蜜,又背棄了上帝呢?真以為只憑單眼就能取代上帝嗎?禁任何聖徒之言與掠奪聖徒的智慧與阻絕聖徒獲取錢財或權勢,真以為可一手遮天了嗎?Isreal Isreal This is my Kingdom come. 奶與蜜只給道德者所享用。

  12. All this because some nerd incel (Zuckerberg) wanted to rate woman's bodies. I'm just waiting for corporations to start declaring themselves sovereign countries.
