    In some places Facebook basically is the internet. That is very strange. The financial relationship bt news sources and FB is also interesting to me.

    And if they have internet, they can access any news streams they want. This doesn't make sense.

    Google went the opposite direction and agreed to pay a significant amount for content they will include in Google news.

    Police and fire departments and emergency services use their local FB pages to communicate, just like US police and fire and FEMA.

    This.

    FB has been stealing content for a long time. I have a friend who tried to make money on youtube and his best videos got 50+ million views on facebook someone else posted and he got nothing and since he isn't a big corporation there was no recourse, and it happens all the time. FB are content sucking scum.

    The sad thing is they know they have effectively maxed the advertising revenue model so now they are trying to be what wechat is in china for the entire planet. An app where you get all your content, do your banking, shop, messaging, everything.

    I bought an Occulus quest 2 on a whim before Christmas, you have to use a FB account to use it, all the prior versions you just needed an Occulus account. I follow a few groups on FB (local crime scanner, high school class, a few cruise lines specific cruises and about 15 friends and that's it.

    I got a quest 2 too, daughter set it up, didn't know about the FB requirement. I do know I've been seeing more and more sites that say "login with facebook"
