How Facebook is Stealing Billions of Views

  • Published: 10 November 2015

                                  Facebook is not cheating if you see anybody that copies just copyright it and the thing that the video starts after 3 seconds and you are a viewer the same happens in the new version of RUclip if you scroll slow enough you are going to give them a view

                                                Once in a class, my teacher asked “Why is social media bad?” I said because it’s social media.

                                                          With the browser app AdGuard you can just remove the areas of a page that display ads in a few clicks. Also it will prevent ad-videos from playing. Nothing new today really.

                                                            RUclip also don't correctly check who created content, so often the ad-revenue royalties go to the Thief. This actually goes beyond negligence and fraud. But I have elaborated enough.
