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?

    I mean the guy who owns Facebook IS Mark Zuckerberg. The guy who stole the idea of Facebook from the very beginning.

    How does 17 million views on one video, being one of only many videos that are "constantly" stolen, totalling into the hundreds of millions of views perhaps, give the creator "close to no exposure at all"

    I deleted my facebook account 5 years ago, they no longer have my attention and I am just one person out of a few million who have also gone this route. They have lost out on allot of profits.

    I run another channel and have a big fucking watermark on all the videos. If people steal any it’ll be hard for them to remove the watermark so people will always know to go back to my channel.
