Facebook Not On Saudi Prince’s “Like” List

2010 November 19

Knowing Facebook’s interesting past with allowing cartoons of Mohammad being posted for “Draw Mohammad Day”, we never thought Facebook would be on the Saudis “like” list. Living in  a Western society, having a social networking site blocked for exhibiting western thought is mind boggling and a violation of freedom of speech. But according to a Saudi Kingdom representative, Facebook was blocked “because the popular social networking doesn’t conform with the kingdom’s conservative values”.

The Canadian Press also reported,

“[Facebook’s content] crossed a line with the kingdom’s conservative morals”

Looks like the Saudi Prince isn’t too happy with Mark Zuckerberg. read more…

The only purpose I use this social network is for sharing my thoughts and opinions on different political matters while occasionally watching for hate groups and antisemitic slurs. After watching The Social Network, a movie depicting the story about Mark Zuckerberg’s “creation” of Facebook”, I have come to the realization that it was created to distract people from reality.

Think about it. read more…

Is the King of Social Networking Accepting Antisemitism?

2010 September 7

Facebook might be the king of social networking sites but it's not the king of hearts.

Facebook has recently become the “king” of social networking sites after its expansion in the last few years has brought millions of new people with all various opinions. Facebook even has a new group called “Jewish pickup lines” which has been quite popular in attracting fellow Jews with jokes about our culture and religion. Some of these pickup lines are quite funny and show people’s wit and charismatic side towards Israel and the Jewish people. The point of this group was to unite people based on humor not hate. But obviously not all Facebook groups are as positive about Israel and Jews in general. read more…
