It’s just a really, really bad state of affairs.
– Chamath Palihapitiya (Facebook Executive) –

If you will not listen to Jesus, at least listen to your own empty prophets.

Regarding an incident in which seven innocent men in India were lynched after a hoax about kidnappings spread through WhatsApp: “That’s what we’re dealing with. And imagine taking that to the extreme, where bad actors can now manipulate large swathes of people to do anything you want. It’s just a really, really bad state of affairs.” – Chamath Palihapitiya (Facebook Executive)

 “Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd,” (Exodus 23:2)

Agreed – it is shit: Unsurprisingly, when it comes to social media, his children “aren’t allowed to use that shit.” – Chamath Palihapitiya (Facebook Executive)

Obey – don’t follow.

Obey – don’t go near.

Obey – get out now and be separate from it all.

 “Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:17-18)

That he feels “tremendous guilt” about Facebook. “I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.”

“The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created [including the hearts, likes, and thumbs up of various social media channels] are destroying how society works.”

He added, “[There’s] no civil discourse, no cooperation; [only] misinformation, mistruth. And it’s not an American problem–this is not about Russians ads. This is a global problem.”

Now you know why King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg likes Facebook.

Unsurprisingly, when it comes to social media, his children “aren’t allowed to use that shit.”

The only way Chamath Palihapitiya can have his guilt removed is by repenting and following Jesus.

Mr. Chamath Palihapitiya attempt to be responsible, to do good with his fortune derived from sinful employment at Facebook will one day be fully revealed for the corruption that it is.

Now, just as Mr. Chamath Palihapitiya was deceived at one time about his work at Facebook, so too, he is deceiving himself about his current attempt to do good deeds. If Mr. Palihapitiya humbles himself before God his eyes would be open to just how filthy his good deeds are – of how much further cruelty he is doing.

A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel. (Proverbs 12:10) 

Bonus:

True again Mr. Chamath Palihapitiya:

Palihapitiya also notes that although tech investors seem almighty, they’ve achieved their power more through luck than skill. “Everybody’s bullshitting,” he said. – The Verg, Mr. Chamath Palihapitiya

I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11)

(fastcompany.com)—Another former Facebook executive has spoken out about the harm the social network is doing to civil society around the world. Chamath Palihapitiya, who joined Facebook in 2007 and became its vice president for user growth, said he feels “tremendous guilt” about the company he helped make. “I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works,” he told an audience at Stanford Graduate School of Business, before recommending people take a “hard break” from social media.

Palihapitiya’s criticisms were aimed not only at Facebook, but the wider online ecosystem. “The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created are destroying how society works,” he said, referring to online interactions driven by “hearts, likes, thumbs-up.” “No civil discourse, no cooperation; misinformation, mistruth. And it’s not an American problem — this is not about Russians ads. This is a global problem.”

He went on to describe an incident in India where hoax messages about kidnappings shared on WhatsApp led to the lynching of seven innocent people. “That’s what we’re dealing with,” said Palihapitiya. “And imagine taking that to the extreme, where bad actors can now manipulate large swathes of people to do anything you want. It’s just a really, really bad state of affairs.” He says he tries to use Facebook as little as possible, and that his children “aren’t allowed to use that shit.” He later adds, though, that he believes the company “overwhelmingly does good in the world.”
