Facebook Reeling As Droves Switch To Other Facebook-Owned Social Media Site
Millions have joined the #deletefacebook movement, and it looks like the migration will never end. Much of Facebook’s long-lasting success has come from its bothersome delete process and continued stronghold on the weird relatives and high school acquaintances posting about Bitcoin communities. But now Facebook may be losing everyone.
Believe it or not, the things posted on Facebook were visible to people! When you posted that status saying “I hate Ms. Schlitz, but she got some tig ol’ bitties lmao” in a public forum, your information wasn’t solely your own. A corporation used that status and the rest of your profile to make a profit.
In the wake of these discoveries, new users have dropped considerably and more and more individuals have begun to exclusively use Instagram. The Facebook-owned Instagram streamlines personal data collection and gives a more holistic view of a person’s potential purchasing habits and personality making it easier to tailor advertisements to an individual as well as sell their information to any number of nefarious foreign intelligence agencies.
Through rapid developments in AI technology and machine learning, soon Instagram will be able to accurately assess the potential of a person to commit crimes before they happen. The hope is to genetically install this technology in a select group of individuals to form a special police division devoted to PreCrime--stopping murders before they happen.
Eventually, Tom Cruise will be told that in 36 hours he will murder a man he has never met, and it is up to him to prevent this future from happening. Will he fulfill his destiny or will he follow the minority report and clean up his act long enough to save himself and reunite with his estranged daughter?
Critics have found the program overindulgent by stating “High-concept science-fiction escapades often try to impose new ways of seeing, but Spielberg seems intent on blistering our optic nerves.” While others insist that “If less poetic than AI, Minority Report is much more confidently directed, with a firmer sense of its maker's own urge to entertain and stimulate rather than bemuse.”
I myself am looking forward to what will be the definitive summer blockbuster of 2002.
