    stranglehold .

  13. 48 states say the fakebook is criminal
    I never had fb, I don’t like how it damaged people and businesses or user data
    #Delete facebook

  14. Google should have been first. The FTC and other regulatory agencies simply are not capable of bringing multiple large corporations to task simultaneously. Why not go after the biggest offenders first as a template to get the lightweights to find out that fighting is useless and will waste their time and resources as much as the governments? A form of plea bargaining if you will.
