Facebook/Meta voted the worst company of the year

Shockingly, Meta, née Facebook, has been voted the Worst Company of the Year, with Yahoo Finance polling their audience as to which company is the absolute worst.

Facebook rebrands itself 'Meta,' hold the 'World Peace'

Our survey’s 1,541 respondents were mad about a lot this year, from the Robinhood (HOOD) trading freezes last winter to electric truck startup Nikola still not having its act together. But one company irked them the most — Facebook (FB). The survey’s results shed more light on why the company decided to rebrand this year to a new name: Meta Platforms.

Facebook has had its share of controversies this year. It’s been under the antitrust microscope and faced a flurry of allegations from a whistleblower claiming Facebook ignored safety issues for the sake of growth. Congress is constantly demanding answers from the company on both fronts. At the same time, some critics, including conservatives, say Facebook over-policed the platform’s speech and stifled their voices. Other critics, including those on the left side of the aisle, claim Facebook allows the spread of misinformation.

What is especially interesting about the Company Formerly Known as Facebook is just how many and varied the reasons people dislike it. It received 50% more votes than the second-place finisher, Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, not for one singular offense but for a litany of grievances from groups of people that may have little else to agree about…

A significant amount of responses focused on executives and founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg has certainly never been Mr. Popular…

MacDailyNews Take: Facebook/Meta is garbage company led by a garbage human.

Meta? The societal cancer purveyor probably just misspelled “Meat,” since that’s how Zuckerberg has always viewed and treated his customers.

Zuckerberg: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard
Zuckerberg: Just ask
Zuckerberg: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SSNs
Zuckerberg: People just submitted it.
Zuckerberg: I don’t know why.
Zuckerberg: They “trust me”
Zuckerberg: Dumb fucks

(Instant messages sent by Mark Zuckerberg during Facebook’s early days, reported by Business Insider in May 2010.)

All of these “social media” platforms – Twitter, Parler, Facebook – are cancers on society. They are clearly eating society from the inside out. There’s something unsavory within human nature that “digital distance” amplifies to the point of disgust.

If you quit these cancers you will quickly realize what they are and what they do. You will be happier and healthier to have excised them from your life.

We haven’t had personal Twitter or Facebook accounts for many years now. And very happily so.MacDailyNews, January 9, 2021

If you trust Mark Zuckerberg to be the keeper of your photos, contacts, political views, religious beliefs, etc., you’re batshit insane. — MacDailyNews, May 23, 2018

  1. I think it was a good choice. Their latest commercials, at least in our area, make them look like a confused bunch of young people asking the Federal Government to do their job for them.

  2. China is seriously moving toward their issue of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and the US is well along in considering/planning for one of its own,
    The Borg (Mark Z) is very interested in issuing one of “his” own coins and is on attempt #2…called Diem. Digi-coins that are centralized (not BTC) gives the “owner” great insight and possible control of the users. The last thing a freedom-based country needs is a CBDC and, OR, a coin issued by a company/indi like Meta/FB.

    Fortunately, Congress is concerned with what a Meta/FB digi-coin would mean. It’s worthwhile to be concerned yourself. Mark hasn’t shown himself to be worthy of such insight and control of his “clients.”

  3. I wish FaceBook/Meta never bought Instagram. I like posting on IG. But I often see the influence of its parent company. The trick to enjoying it is NOT to get overly involved social and political commentary, or self-promotion, and post and view creativity.

  4. Quit Farcebook today. Your life will immediately improve. There is nothing positive about the company or the man at the helm. Vote with your feet (and keyboards) and delete your account before Mark Z controls you any more!

  5. Guess that’s what happens when you ‘invent’ AOL, throwing technology backward decades, and pretend that it’s the Matrix. 😂😂😂 Zuck is as big a moron as ever. He’d be no one if he weren’t a thief. For some reason we ended up with MULTIPLE Bill Gates and Microsofts in the 21st century. Sad they chose them to emulate, and funny that they tricked us into believing they were trying to preserve the web. They wanted the spoils for themselves.
