Well, Microsoft was hacked. Facebook was hacked, where M$ owns a lot of their stocks. Then stuff owned by FB. The entire conglomerate that has a specific owner structure is suddenly being hacked. And then FB was also attacked in media, and by so called "whistleblower" which was so vague in her accusations that it couldn't be more clear what's going on.

I've seen many times how it looks like when someone is attacked from all weapons for a fake reason. Because they don't wanna tell the real reason to the media. Why? Because if they told the real reason, the audience would say: "Oh, really? But that's not a bad thing, that's a good thing."

If the audience knew the real reasons, they would agree with FB, and not with the attackers. For example, on some social networks you're not allowed to say that vaccines killed a lot of people. Especially the covid vaccine. Even if that's true, you're not allowed. Such networks are "good". They implemented the automated censorship well.

But FB didn't. They are very very bad people, aren't they?
Well... Microsoft wasn’t hacked... FB isn’t owned by Microsoft... so... still confused...

One of the most important Microsoft's corporate products:

M$ is also in the top 10 shareholders of FB. But you're probably right, the attacks on FB may not have direct connections to M$.

It's almost certainly aimed at FB's loose content control. Someone wants more censorship.

MS wasn’t hacked though.... the software they provided to OTHERS has been hacked... obviously... pretty much every company in the world uses some sort of MS software... I find your conspiracy theory very difficult to believe...

Well, when it comes to FB there isn't any theory, it's a proper conspiracy (or should we use the word "attack"). You have some kind of a whistleblower, you have hacks of important services, bringing down not only FB but all the sites they own. The assault started from all sides simultaneously. And the reason they gave... so lame and incredible.

"They don't care about security, only focused on profit". Man, if you put the word "Android" instead of "FB" the above accusation would fit even better. Or TikTok. Or whatever. All the companies are doing it. In fact, every popular site you visit is sending your cookies to 1000 to 5000 companies that connect them and create psychological profiles of the users. And those aren't even anonymous profiles. Because some of the data is eventually connected to your real name. And when one piece of data is connected, all the others are connected immediately afterwards.

So..... they are all doing it, but only FB is attacked. Why? Because they refuse to censor certain "politically incorrect" content. That's not what the whistleblower said directly, but she revealed their real motivation in different parts of her deliberately vague and misleading speech.

In other words, same old crap that we saw in the attacks on gaming communities. Where it was a big problem if you called out certain people for what they really were, because they are specially protected by a certain unhealthy agenda. At the same time you're allowed, even invited, to insult people who are on the black list of the same agenda. No safety for them. And if a social network doesn't comply to such an aggressive and biased censorship...... they are the bad guys. People who fight the dictatorship are the bad guys.

I don't like FB for many reasons, but I will defend their right for unbiased censorship. The only content they should block is the one which is dangerous for the entire society. Other than that, there should be no censorship. For example, I should be able to write "vaccines have killed NNNN people so far".

On YouTube this is mostly prohibited. You can write it once or twice, but eventually their algorithm will shadow ban your comment. Now, that's a violation of freedom of speech. And no, it doesn't matter if you clicked "Accept" on the YT user agreement. A company user agreement cannot violate state laws. And freedom of speech is one of those.
