How Facebook is Stealing Billions of Views

  • Published on: 10 November 2015
  • Facebook just announced 8 billion video views per day. This number is made out of lies, cheating and worst of all: theft. All of this is wildly known but the media giant Facebook is pretending everything is fine, while damaging independent creators in the process. How does this work?

    These big corporations are very creative in stealing creators' property. And law always seems to be on the more powerful entity's side.Not a nice state of affairs.P.S. I'm only writing this comment because I know that - for reasons I'm not sure of - commenting a video improves its profitability for the creator.

    All the dislikes are the millions of people stealing content from others.

    you should also add that almost all viral videos that are recommended to me are literally the most unfunny so called "comedians" making vids that make them seem smart and make the video long for no reason but waste my time and the most unfunny skits I have ever seen, and also they do a lot of reposting of content of other creators which gets tons of views and credit when they literally didnt do anything

    I freaking hate Facebook. Facebook leads to original YouTube content creators go almost bankrupt and Facebook is also the embodiment of “the media”, which means that it ALWAYS leads to unnessesarry controversy. It’s litteraly just like Reddit! I nominate Facebook, TikTok and Reddit as the Top 3 WORST Social Media Apps.

    LMAO! Tell that to the 'Better Than Yesterday' Channel! People think it's his own original work but he's presenting ideas from books and other people as if they were his own and never credits his source.

    In my opinion, whenever a person tries to upload a video, Facebook should add the link if they haven't given itPlease respect the hard work of those independent creators
