--- Quote ---Someone on Reddit, before they deleted their account, claimed to be a Facebook employee, and said that Facebook needs to get someone with BGP clue physically in a datacenter to fix this.

This is the largest and most significant Facebook data dump to date and seemingly unrelated to an earlier 2021 Facebook data dump.

It's annoying that the outage is getting more coverage than last night's interview with Frances Haugen regarding Facebook's horrible, horrible practices ruining every facet of modern culture.

Similar to coverage of a government shutdown over budget squabbles vs revelations that the gov has been spyin' lyin' and hidin' abuses of its citizens and others around the world.

Err, the fact that the government ahs been spyin, lyin and hidin' abuses of its citizens and others around the world has been known for two decades. They called it the Patriot act*, and if you somehow managed to miss the doings of Wikileaks, Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning et al, you really haven't been paying attention. Which is understandable, because that's how social media algorithms work :|

Same with the horrible practices of Facebook (or Twitter or Youtube or what have you, as they all have similar issues): There is nothing new under the sun. I have to say that I'm kinda rolling my eyes at the title here: Selling user data to advertizers is literally how these companies make a profit.

Whilst when a megacorperation's entire infrastructure goes down, that's new and notable.

* I realize that this singles out a particular time and country, but the US is hardly the only place in this - every country that HLPers live in is guilty of this, especially when they collaborate as part of the 5, 9 or 14 eyes agreements. And this is not the first time this happens in history either: Even if you single out the US you can look at any point in the last century to see the government constantly spying on its own citizens and abusing the people who went to say things that the government did not like. The thing that has changed is the scale.

Yes, that's what I was referring to.  Even back when PATRIOT was first passed, I knew it would be abused.  No one cares if you spy on terrorists, but the gov't has a funny way of taking a light-year for every inch you give them -- and then never giving it back, at least not without a friggin' bloody revolution.
