    Ask your pension fund whether they have shares in Facebook that is used to trade kids !!!!!

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Not into pension funds but my 401 is heavy into Facebook shares .

    • Just did, my Pension Fund has an ethical codex:

      "NNs' Pension follows the basic ethical position, which is reflected in the surrounding communities. NNs' Pension follows naturally by the parliament joined the laws and conventions of both the national legislation to the international agreements, etc.., Ratified by EUC.

      NNs' Pension wishes through its business investments to promote balanced economic development, free of corruption and with good working and living conditions, including the proper handling of natural resources. Investment in NN's Pension happens with respect for democracy, and information and freedom of expression.

      In the particular application, the NN' Pension does not invest in companies:

      through their activity promotes violent conflict, including base their activity on the production of weapons or trade in,
      through their activity supports violations of human and labor rights,
      through their activity shows irresponsible use of natural resources and / or harm the environment,
      through their activities in a manner characterized by corruption, including extortion and bribery. "

      Since FB through the activity of facilitating trading of kids, violates human rights, my pension fund will be have
      to sell FB.

      For the sake of human rights and helpless children. contact your Pension Fund and ask if the Pension Fund has invested in FB, and if so, ask if it violates the ethical code which must be public.

    • For a trained thief and liar like Zuck it is probably no problem to trade children on FB if profitable. But for those of us who find trading of kids unacceptable, we should contact our pension fund, in US or abroad, that may have invested in Facebook, and and if so, confront the pension fund with the fact that Facebook facilitate trading of kids.


    • The internet has been used for purposes both good and bad since it's inception. The internet is used for porn and escort services. What are you suggesting? shutting down the internet? If anything FB is TOO aggressive in it's policing activity when it comes to content. You're a dope.
