How Facebook is Stealing Billions of Views

  • Published on: 10 November 2015
  • Facebook just announced 8 billion video views per day. This number is made out of lies, cheating and worst of all: theft. All of this is wildly known but the media giant Facebook is pretending everything is fine, while damaging independent creators in the process. How does this work?

    Like Google then that has 87% of all devices in the world. While facebook is just an app that you don't need to install on your device. Ohh! And google owns YouTube. Oh! Their devices spy on you too, no matter how much apps you disable and how many settings you set to "Do not collect data" on your Android (Google) device. I even tried to use alternative OS on my Android phone that was supposed to be 100% Google free. And I had to "Root" (Jailbreak) my Phone to do it. I used open source appstore and still my firewall in my phone repeatedly had to work its ass of to stop google from snooping on me. I have given up the fight after Three years of trying to stop Google, Facebook and Microsoft to spy on me. I have a Librebooted old IBM laptop with Linux (Trisquel) installed on it, but you know what?? I can't do much if I want to stay totally free from intellectual propeiarty programs. I can't listen to the music I want. I can't se the tv shows I want. I can't watch Kurzgesagt. There is no escaping them!! Period!

    This also describes Reddit. They steal their own content within,though, more than YouTube videos

    Jajajaja justo eso hago con lod videos de esta página, a veces la gente descarga el video sin el intro para que no se vea que Kurzgesagt fue quien lo realizó, inmediatamente pongo el link para redirigirlos al original.
