    We’re Fine Without Facebook, German and French Ministers Say

    This have escalated and some EU ministers are willing to make do with Meta's threat.
    We might get still get a chance of seeing Facebook being banned from the EU.

    I blocked their domains from my firewall anyway - as well as Twitter. Got sick of seeing twitter links and hastags everywhere like a plague on every website I used to visit.

    I want to visit YOUR website, not the website of another company...why are you drawing me away from your website?

    Never understood why people would build a website and then agree to another companies web site rules and regulations...just make your site awesome and run your own stats.

    Anyone remember pouring over data like 'page impressions'? Happy days people, perhaps we should get back to taking control of our own websites again...

    Just a thought people, just a thought.

    Ok Bye.

    Probably the best thing that could happen with them to be honest.

    One door closed, another door open.
    Let people know about Signal, Viber, Telegram , what have you.
    Maybe Wire, Threema or Matrix ...

    There is also a thing called "the real world".
    It has amazing graphics. But it's pay to win and has a lot of cheaters.
    Also, you only get one life, and no continues.

    They do it because of ads, you don't need any of that stuff on your own website as long as you don't want any ad revenue from it.
    Oh and FB being gone forever? Good.

    I will believe it when I will see it done for real.
    Don't forget the greed is able to bend the will and morals in humans.
