I'm glad I have no interest in ever dating again. I'd hate to crush my secret admirer.

Facebook's 2018 fourth-quarter profit was $6.9 billion, a 61% increase over the 2017 fourth quarter. It's nice to see Mark Zuckerberg spending his money wisely and not wasting it on foolishness. Wait, what?

I don't mind a profitable company rewarding their employees when things are going well.

I've got a bigger problem with how FB appears to be making a lot of that money.

Hughes says Facebook is a "powerful monopoly" and Mark Zuckerberg has "unprecedented power." He wants government regulators to break up the company. The government broke up Standard Oil in 1911 and the Bell System in 1982 – but Facebook is a social media platform which is free to join and is supported by advertising. In other words, Chris, it ain't gonna happen.

I just noticed I made a mistake in my May 23 post. Why did no one tell me? I meant to say Facebook should change its name to Fakebook. Instead I wrote "Facebook." Now I know the horrible truth: DRC members pay about as much attention to my posts as do the members on that *other* site. But let's move on.

Sixty-eight percent of Facebook investors want Zuckerberg ousted. I assume he got "likes" from the other 32%.
