Facebook flexes political muscle with provision in immigration bill
Facebook was successful in pressing for language that would help its business interests in the new Senate immigration deal.The provision would allow the company to employ foreigners with special visas as more than 15 percent of its workforce while avoiding stricter government regulations.

please sign the petition telling Congress it’s time to end tax loopholes for corporations and the wealthy. Click here to sign.Despite Facebook reporting profits of over $1.1 billion in 2012, the company is expected to pay no federal or state income taxes. In fact, Facebook will receive net tax refunds totaling $429 million, because tax deductions on executive stock options can be written off as salary deductions.Less than a week after the sequester has officially gone into effect, bringing with it painful budget cuts, layoffs, and furloughs for employees, this is a perfect example of how the deficit and spending cuts are driven by loopholes that allow corporations and wealthy Americans to get all the breaks.Congress desperately needs to reform the tax code so that the most successful among us pay their fair share.Please, click here to sign the petition telling Congress it's time ...Keep fighting, Rachel Colyer Associate Campaign Director, Daily Kos
Joe, this petition has no allowance for us non-US people.
Tell Mark Zuckerberg: Unfriend the anti-woman Republican Governor C...
Yesterday I joined cooperative social networking site Zurker. Like Diaspora before it this one is being promoted as a potential Facebook killer. To take over from Facebook any new social networking site needs a critical mass and we haven’t seen this happen yet – but presumably will do at some point. After all, Facebook effectively killed MySpace, and MySpace effectively killed Friendster. However the mechanisms for taking over from Facebook may be more complicated than Zurker founder Nick Oba realises. That said I’m giving Zucker a go and if you want to do so as well you can get an invite to participate in the site’s beta testing by clicking here.
I’m still posting a few times a week at both Diaspora and even occasionally at Identic.Ca (promoted as an ethical version of Twitter) but as yet I haven’t seen much action on either. Ultimately the real Facebook killer might turn out to be software rather than a rival site. One of the things that drove the Facebook share price down immediately after the floatation (aside from the obvious over-valuation) was a forecast about a downturn in revenue due to increasing numbers of people accessing the site via smart phone browsers that didn’t carry advertising. Now suppose there was also a much higher take up of software that blocks advertising from computer web browsers and that this really spooked the markets? That could create the kind of turmoil around Facebook that might make it more vulnerable to another site taking over a substantial proportion of its users. So maybe more people using Adblock Plus is potentially the real Facebook killer – since Mark Zuckerberg is much more under pressure from outside forces now he’s taken his company public.
And while you’re at it don’t forget to check – www.stewarthomesociety.org – you know it makes (no) sense!
The face of the enemy (the face of the 1%) is below.
It's going viral: In just over 12 hours, more than 70,000 people have signed on to our campaign to get Facebook to back down from its support for CISPA.
It's the new bill that would obliterate online privacy, give the military crazy new abilities to spy on the Internet, and potentially let ISPs block sites and cut off users accused of piracy

Thank you for spreading the word as well as posting. Keep up the good work. I'm going to start documenting facebook advertisers, researching them, getting their contact info without clicking on them while on facebook. I'm planning to get their emails & phone #. Then contacting them & telling them not to advertise on facebook. I will be posting the info on this group as well as messaging it. If you could do as well that would be great. Thank you.
Outstanding union brother! Yes I have been trying to spread the word on facebook as much as I can. I think I brought about twenty members so far.
