Quote:A senior Facebook executive told Australian media companies that if they didn’t cooperate with the social network, their businesses would die.

According to a report by The Australian, Campbell Brown, Facebook’s head of news partnerships, told a group of more than 20 broadcasters and publishers that she wanted to help media companies develop sustainable business models through the platform.

“We will help you revitalise journalism … in a few years the ­reverse looks like I’ll be holding your hands with your dying ­business like in a hospice,” she said, in comments corroborated by five people who attended the meeting in Sydney on Tuesday.

The Australian also reported that Brown said that Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, “doesn’t care about publishers but is giving me a lot of leeway and concessions to make these changes”, although both Facebook and Brown vehemently deny this comment was made, referring to a transcript they have from the meeting.

No corporation should have that kind of ability.

If this doesn't spur regulations the internet is just about done.

Facebook is in the process of dying, "Facebook is shedding massive traffic" https://bgr.com/2018/08/08/facebook-traf...ng-ground/
FB wants money to promote media firms pages or else no exposure, scammy.

Stifling innovation for 14 years and counting.
Certainly something should be done, but FB is deep in the pockets of congress, meaning nothing will be done and they will continue to grow more tyrannical.

Gangster tactics. Hey that's a beautiful business you have, it'd be a shame if something bad happened.
