Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated this week that the social media firm has plans to further crack down on fake news on the platform via “suppression” of certain news publications. BuzzFeed News reports that Zuckerberg revealed that Facebook has been gathering data on certain publications by asking consumers how they feel about certain publications and their trustworthiness. Zuckerberg stated: “We put [that data] into the system, and it is acting as a boost or a suppression, and we’re going to dial up the intensity of that over time. We feel like we have a responsibility to further [break] down polarization and find common ground.” Zuckerberg stated that Facebook would be investing billions of dollars into human moderators to spot fake news on the platform as well as heavily investing in artificial intelligence.: MARK ZUCKERBERG FACEBOOK WILL 'DIAL UP THE INTENSITY' OF NEWS 'SUPPRESSION' LEADING UP TO MIDTERM ELECTIONS hip Somodevilla/Getty Images 🚨OUTRAGEOUS LEFTIST BIAS AND RIGGING...AND JUST IN TIME FOR THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS!🚨 Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated recently that the company plans to “dial up the intensity” of news suppression leading towards the U.S. midterm elections.

I'm authentic, 100% of the time (I do my best). Surprisingly very few people get truly upset with me in person. I have extremely dark eyes, borderline black unless the sunlight is hitting them. I do my best to gaze into people's eyes, as they truly are the pathway to the soul. Despite intense conversations, they rarely turn aggressive. I spoke to a gentlemen this morning from Ukraine about the CIA backed coup in his homeland that led to the ouster of the democratically elected president who was a Russian puppet, and the rise to power of someone friendly to the US and NATO. Despite strong differences in opinion I managed to find common ground with him. I made a genuine connection with this man, a complete stranger.: "Sometimes I spend time alone because hearing the same meaningless conversations from people everyday makes me want to punch someone in the face" Ryan Reynolds I'm authentic, 100% of the time (I do my best).

Guess the question is why would you still want to be friends with your ex? Unless you have kids. How does your ex help your future? Like what role does he serve? Is he going to support you? Or invest in you? Would you invite him to your wedding? Bc when your life is full and you're thinking of your next move there is NO room in your mind to entertain men from your past, not even for a second. Stalk? Maybe. Entertain as in actually text or message NO WAY. Why? Because "just friends" never really means "just friends"! And straight after a break up you are inviting temptation and break ups usually involve some sort of disrespect and ain't nobody got time to wait 2 years until both of y'all have healed to start up a "friendship" again. More than likely one of you will be in a new relationship and it makes things complicated. Unless you guys have common ground like your job or a business there are too many good men out there to be "just friends" wid your ex. Facts.

Like, if someone is telling you they had a hard day, do you really go out of your way to be like, “well, mine was worse!” That seems really fucked up and cruel, honestly.</p> </blockquote> <p>also kinda douchy. Like how does she know? I remember a saying in Buddhism on compassion, going like “the poor man cannot see the suffering of the rich man, but that does not mean it does not exist or have meaning,” or something like that.</p> <p>basically, even if you believe your suffering is worse, it is not becoming to use that fact as an excuse to sneer at others.</p> </blockquote> <p>oppression olympics strikes again!</p> </blockquote> <p>No one is allowed to feel anything around lesbians, apparently.</p> </blockquote> <p>Woman One: “High school was a difficult time for me.”<br/></p> <p> Woman Two: “It was a difficult time for me also, albeit for different reasons.”<br/></p> <p>Both: “Let us commiserate over our experiences and together find common ground that brings up closer as friends and enables us to better understand and appreciate one another’s perspectives.”<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>The literal worst thing you can do is try to “call out” a person on some inherent privilege they had based on factors they can’t control when they’re saying they had a bad time at some point. Like? The “straight white girl” could have been harassed or raped or something and race and sexuality wouldn’t magically make her immune to that. Belittling someone else’s experiences to whine about yours is beyond narcissistic.</p> </blockquote> <p><b>White woman:</b> High school sucked.
