I don't care if the insiders are buying shares today to make it "appear" that the company is unaffected by this story - they should be scared, very scared.
Your "personal infomration" is being sold to others, so you can be targeted by ads, etc. Facebook doesn't want you to communicate with others, they want you to reveal things about yourself in your supposedly "private" (LOL) conversations with your connections - so they can monitor and sell your preferences to those seeking to target you. Why not call it what it really is, "Spybook."
Facebook is a scam, a hoax, and disgusting. And if they state that they don't "share," or sell your personal information, baloney. They probably do or will soon - for the money, of course - the money they're bound to lose after the "60 Minutes" story and outcry for this garbage online to stop.
I've been back and forth with the company several times to resolve a very simple issue - they are bumbling and stumbling around to fix it - and still cannot. I was thinking of investing in Microsoft, but after this horrific experience, forget it! I cannot believe how inept this company is with such a simple issue. I'm thinking of closing my accounts with them and moving them elsewhere. I'm giving them one last chanfce, requesting escalation to the highest point there where someone knows what the heck they're doing (the Peter Principle apparantly thrives there). Unbelievable!
I emailed them to remove me from their ad list, which I forwarded to my Junk Mail anyway. Nething you know they locked me out of my account and are giving me trouble getting back in. Screw 'em - I'm going elsewhere. Very poor decisions by them, service, and now they created badwill from a good (former) customer. Beware of this company!
By the way, did you know that yahoo "selectively" allows posts and does not post everything you want to say? I've had this a couple of times - like they want to control what you say. Hey, yahoo-finance - this is America. Why don't you take your act to a third world country if you want to suppress people's opinions? Jerks, total jerks.
We play a dirty trick on ourselves and countries lending us money: we simply print more of our own, flooding our markets and creating rampant inflation. Perhaps worse is that when countries lend us money, this same overprinting devalues the dollars we pay them back! So if they lend us a trillion and we then print 10% more than what's in our economy at that time, what we pay back to the lending country or entity is only worth 90% of the original amount!
No wonder China and others don't lend us any more money (China and Brazil are now very cozy - they're smart).
And don't let the "rise" in the stock market fool you. Where does the additional printed money go, hot off the press? That's right, to the wealthy. Does it "trickle down?" LOL. The "markets" are a joke, and I would not be surprised if they, too, are worth a lot less than is being reported (hint at regulator corruption).
