"Fake News" Facebook Lands On List Of "America's Most Hated Companies"

Tyler Durden's picture

Facebook just can't seem to catch a break lately.  From questionable privacy policies and mass data collection of its users to its handling of the so-called "Fake News" epidemic (see "George Soros Is Funding Facebook's "Third-Party Fact Checking" Organization Targeting 'Fake News'"), Mark Zuckerberg is pissing off a lot of people these days.  Unfortunately, when your entire business model is based on "friending" others, the alienation of various groups has caused enough people to "dislike" Facebook that the company has landed itself on 24/7 Wall Street's list of "America's Most Hated Companies."

Coming in at #6, Facebook narrowly beat out Spirit Airlines, which, for anyone who has been left stranded by Spirit in Chicago's O'Hare Airport in the middle of winter, that speaks volumes. 

  1. Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA)
  2. Bank of America (NYSE: BAC)
  3. Mylan (NASDAQ: MYL)
  4. McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD)
  5. Wells Fargo Bank (NYSE: WFC)
  6. Facebook (NASDAQ: FB)
  7. Spirit (NASDAQ: SAVE)
  8. DISH Network (NASDAQ: DISH)
  9. Sears (NASDAQ: SHLD)
  10. Sprint (NYSE: S)
  11. Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT)
  12. Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR)

Zuckerberg

 

Meanwhile, the two largest cable providers in the country also made the
list which is astonishing given their impeccable reputation for such
helpful customer service and 100% internet reliability.  But, only about 40% of
the households in the U.S. rely on those two companies for service so
it's probably not a big deal.

But, of the top 12, Facebook was the only Silicon Valley giant to make the list despite, as 24/7 Wall Street points out, being a "boon for shareholders since it's IPO."

Facebook has been a boon for shareholders since its IPO.
The company’s stock is now trading over 200% higher than its 2012 Wall
Street debut. However, not everyone is pleased with the social media
platform. In recent years, the company has drawn significant
criticism over its privacy policies and the mass data collection of its
users.

 

Recently, the company faced
sharp criticism for not doing enough to curb the spread of fake news
leading up to the U.S. presidential election.
Since then, in an
apparent attempt to mend public relations, the company announced a
series of new policies aimed at identifying and flagging fake news
stories on its site.

 Oh well, at least they beat Sears.

Zuckerberg making his O face, typical.

Did you mean Oy face?

I'm here all week.

p.s. I could never imagine being a slave to FAIDSbook. I don't know if it is a cause of the rampant arrested cases of emotional development se see these days, or it's a manifestation of it - probably both.

FaceFuck is just a miserable service run by the infamous Anti-American Zuckerbutt.  Shut it down, Donald.

I don't think I've ever seen a FaceBook page, nor do I know what a "tweet" is.  I understand this is the new form of communication, but I've always subconsciously thought of it as nothing but sheer egoism and voyeurism (not to mention the perfect vacuum cleaner for Big Brother to gobble up dirt on the naive sheeple).

My motto is that of Sgt. Friday from the old Dragnet... "Just the facts, ma'am".

Just all bad luck subverting the best efforts of an exceptional quality of management.

That Zuckerberg is a good kid and doesn't deserve all this hate. He was great in Boogie Nights.

DeathMerchant's picture

If that's true, then why did all of the other kids beat him up and steal his lunch money in grade school ?? All of those kids now have lifetime bans from FB.

Are the FB slaves in rebellion?

They post (work) for free and The Zuck gets all the ad revs.

Negros figured out how to use Facebook, it can't be too complicated. Negros also mastered the smart phone.

Great list! I can't stand Fuckbook and Suckerbutt.

A possible idea that could have been great that has been ruined by a fucking liberal / socialist / communist asshat that thinks he has the keys to the kingdom and views his users as nothing more than willing serfs that allow their data to be farmed, analyzed, and sold to the highest bidder. Users get what they deserve and so does Suckerbutt.

I am a big fan of letting people pay for my information. Along with allowing me to own my ideas. One of the main reasons I don't use Fuckbook is because that once you post something on that site you no longer own it. Suckerbutt and Fuckbook own it and that makes everyone that uses that shitty site a new age serf.

How on earth can you call him a "liberal / socialist / communist"? Do you have no idea what those words actually mean. Zukerberg is a self-serving, greedy, monopoly capitalist of the first water. To call him anything else only serves to further addle already-addled minds. Get your already-addled mind in gear and call him what he is.

Liberal / socialist / communist indeed! Your mind is on vacation but your fingers are working overtime. Get a life! Better still, get a dictionary! Better still yet, think for a change. It's a wondrous process. I guarantee it will improve your life.

Social media addicts are narcissistic, and will prioritize self-love ahead of real responsibilities (like giving you a bj).

In other news, Fuck Fartbook. I can't stand that ugly little troll Zuckerberg, and especially hate his co-religionist employee, Sheryl Sandberg.

Gas Chambers, Ahoy!

Well and also for some unknown reason they are continously getting away with cooking their books.

Where is the SEC investigation? Where are the independent auditors that piece this stuff together? 

There seems to be no laws anymore other than for little people.

Cock Suckerberg aka Jacob Greenberg is David Rockefeller's grandson. His Greenberg grampa was CEO of AIG unitl 2005. He's... to connected to fail.

ZHers used to discuss how SEC personnel would spend all day watching online pron. Now we can speculate about their watching streaming suicides, torture fests, etc., on an unspecified online platform.

Over 1/2 my FB posts are ZH to my millenial friends. (& a rare WND, IW, etc.)

Gotta use the SJW platform against itself. (I mean, Trump uses twatter...)

In fact, this seems like a perfect article to post there.

malek's picture

Have you ever asked your friends for feedback (given by means outside of FB), how many of your FB posts actually get displayed to them?

VWAndy's picture

 Its coocoo town now. Foaming at the mouth an everything.

robnume's picture

Don't look now, but Z(F)uckerberg is coming for more of your tax dollars via his new idea of presenting to us ungrateful plebes his personal commitment  to our well being in the form of being eleced to representative office here in the US of A. He will probably attempt to gain access to moar of our tax dollars by running for one office or another here in the not so great if you're trying to live here state of California, because we, the citizens of this not so fair state are too stupid to stop this hypocrisy from taking place. Hurry up, Giant Meteor.

My FB newsfeed is retarded... lousy AI. 

Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture

no Goldman?

I know few here are ordinarily going to cheer trust busting but Fab and google should be broken up-

so should the top 10 banks and media companies...

that the msm is controlled media is obvious, whether you are also honest enough to note its Jewish and Zionist quasicontrol...

they all cover the same stories the same way.

ZH is great at deconstructing the msm bullshit and lies on Russia... be nice if it did the same with Iran...

because I keep hearing that Trump is going after Iran for Israel...

and that will be based on fuvking lies, regardless of the naked cuntery of the mullahs...

Such a desperate spammer and failed trader. Add Virginia Wooolf to the list of SpamWave spammers...

Stan Your Man, Your spam post has nothing to do with the article. Instead of discussing your off topic post, lets talk about this:
.
.
NEVER TRUST A COMPANY THAT HAS TO RESORT TO A FLOOD OF OFF TOPIC SPAM COMMENTS FOR ADVERTISING.
.
.
This failed trader, now a spamming organization, has **many** spam accounts on ZH. Note how they are always the same accounts, posting off-topic spam, then they use their other spam accounts to praise themselves, giving themselves thumbs ups, and ripping into people asking them to stop the spam flood. They spend an enormous amount of time spamming becasue their time spent spamming makes them money, unlike their time spent trading and doing analyses.

The spam accounts are (not doubt they have more) : AliSONY, Babs.St.Louis, Billy G, Chi Juan, Dr.Carl, ErikE, FemDayTrader, Irvingm, jasony, John Beau, KC Spike, MadhyaBharatx, MexInvest, MikeM54, Mon T, P Christmas Carole, Penny Trader, Pinky and the Brain, RonnieM, Sonya B59, Stan Your Man, StevieTexie, Van G, Virginia Wooolf, and wisetrader224

So, yes, lets talk about your comment, SpamWave. Why is it that spamming makes you more money than trading?

  facebook is so pathetic!   They hide under the guise of "free speech" to control "free speech".

  Lets show a few people[ 12 year old girls, and disabled youths] kill themselves, then call on CONgress to implement rules that restrict the free communications of others even MOAR!

  Farcebook is a JOKE, and totally controlled by 'Gov.

  James Clapper blatantly lied to CONgress about "bulk collection" of American citizens communications, and YOU TRUST anything that leaves this cocksuckers mouth?

 He's retireing,[this year] because he knows what a fucking thug parasite he is!

A year or two ago Facebook was boasting it could influence an election by manipulating user feeds such as by showing them when friends voted Democrat but not when other friends voted Republican.

Then Facebook denied they could influence an election in any way.

Then they accused people of influencing the election by posting 'fake news'

and announced plans to further manipulate your feed to 'prevent' it.

And all the while they've been collecting data on everything people do there and selling it to the highest bidder.

Like Google, they can apparently do nothing but evil.
