    I’m glad I dont have FaceBook, and I dont buy from Amazon. Plus the Amazon leader has soooooooo much money he can help the environment, help science, and help the people too.

    Ah! Isn’t the EU Govmnt trying to do the same thing? Should these to (ahem) "Superpowers" join forces perhaps?

  8. Paul H. on December 20, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Given how pro-privacy the EU is, I’m surprised they didn’t do this first. Maybe I’m just biased because I’m European.

  9. Nadia Thomas on December 20, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Haha, they brought california and mississippi together. That was a statement!

  10. John Rasmijn on December 20, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    audio is bad fix the volume .. of the audio

  11. Pedro Figueiredo on December 20, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    Really? I’m saying this for years, in Europe Facebook was sued for over $122 million because whatsapp deal, since then facebook has already payed billions of dollars in fines.

    I have a facebook account, but I don’t share anything about me, and since Facebook bought Whatsapp I have been extremely carefully in my messages and calls.

    In 2019 EU fined Google for €1.49 billion for advertising abuse.

    Also large amount of counterfeiting. Really dissuade anyone from starting legitimate businesses. If I start a video game store I’d have to hire professionals, who were trained in identify, the merchandise, I don’t have that kind of money. Too expensive, and earlier, some kid was inhaling harmful chemicals, talk about chemical castration, I don’t really feel like having children, which, every man’s, God given right. Too unsafe, and the authority, who I pay taxes to protect my constitutional, God given right, seem to be doing very little, in regards to this. This is, the kind of stuff that gets people killed or seriously injured, good people, when they can’t take the abuse, I’ve spent over 250 minutes on the phone, so much so in the last few months, calling the police, and I’ve noticed, from what I can see, is a haven, for criminal activity.

  13. Baker Jabbar on December 20, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    All we remember that how Russians used Facebook to manipulate voters in 2016 to favor Trump against Clinton

  14. Leo Rose on December 20, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    i love how he used my state in that example, because california is practically a slur here.

  15. Vinat Khorramshahi on December 20, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Trevor should get awards for excellent voice imitation xD

  16. Actually Hafeezy on December 20, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    lizard man

  17. Sparky Firefly on December 20, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    The real dirty secret is facebook advertising is almost worthless. NOBODY is influenced by their advertising. This has been a scam from the beginning.

  18. Sara Nasr on December 20, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Made a 2020 year in review! Hope it gives you hope and inspiration!


  19. Valorie Napoletana on December 20, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    How dare that internet company make money off the stuff it does and learns on the internet just like every other internet company! How dare they be so popular that they know a lot about us, try to connect us to people like ourselves and try to cater to our every insane whim! I hate facebook as much as he next person but I don’t get how this is what brings 48 states together…

  20. Flynnick on December 20, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    "i don’t have a hoodie in that color" … during the daily social distancing show i discovered new colors watching your hoodies ! what color can that be ?

  21. Lauren on December 20, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    There’s a hoodie in a color that Trevor doesn’t already have!? Is it possible!?

  22. tdubblz on December 20, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    No one is required to use these applications. We all have free will

  23. Damien Lovett on December 20, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    But ain’t nobody saying shyt about Unilever or Bell/AT&T

  24. nekrogoregasm on December 20, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    They don’t manage the marketplace well, there’s gambling, and they keep suggesting, things that, one would consider a harmful or malicious act.

  25. J on December 20, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    Who the f still uses Facebook in 2020

  26. Nicholas Erickson on December 20, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    So we don’t care about trusts in big oil, phone companies, or other monopolies but for some reason FacePlant is a big deal???…. Pro tip: if you don’t like Facebook don’t use it! This is hilarious tho.

  27. Life Amendment on December 20, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Lolllll yooooooooooooooo…. he isnt even selling drugs. Zuckerberg got the feds watching.

  28. Raby Maidah Savage on December 20, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Who wants to join me to buy Instagram and WhatsApp? Let’s make these two companies an American peoples’ company.

  29. Scifisam on December 20, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    As a daily user of Facebook, Google, and Amazon (the first two multiple times a day) I feel like I should care more about being "part of the problem".

  30. Jerri Thompson on December 20, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    The Republucans are too much. FB obviously is the leader in social media. So the little church is offended.

  31. craffte on December 20, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Not trying to be rude, but :28 Is that really his voice? It sounds like they asked one guy to do all the reports and he used fake funny voices to do them. It totally sounds like he’s trolling.

  32. M Notes on December 20, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    How-why the shit is it being suited again 🤣

  33. Hito157 on December 20, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    Hmmm I’m nervous about those 10 year later photos that were posted. Now They got data to predict how you look at any age!

  34. Babi Bratzko on December 20, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    But nobody considers disney a illegal monopoly yet.

  35. khatra ahmad on December 20, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    They sale our personal information about time they get charge for crime they did

  36. Kathryn Jordan on December 20, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    About time this happens!

  37. Mandana Weingärtner on December 20, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    I love your humor so much

  38. JMB on December 20, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    Facebook should be completely shut down! It’s disgusting!!

  39. AGT0M on December 20, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    In his childhood Zuckerberg must have played monopoly too much…

  40. melody hallelujah on December 20, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    I want to know about all of the childrens images that have been traded
    and sold to multiple countries and pedofile rings around the world. and i
    want the story to be covered more appropriately.

  41. lily boone on December 20, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    What are they monopolizing? Chatting online? Isn’t their a lot of these things now? Twitter and tick tock and zoom and face time? Idk, I don’t use any of those things.

  42. Anthony Sinette on December 20, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    I was and have been that cousin since 2002, Trevor. It feels good to know that this was the right battle to fight after all of these years.

  43. elvys valerio on December 20, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    Google and Amazon need to be next

  44. solothebest1 on December 20, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    It’s a little to late thinking about a break up now. These big tech companies will continue to get big and gain more influence across the world with their biggest asset being billions of people personal data.

  45. JohnyK07 on December 20, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    I’d argue facebook is the main reason the country is so divided to begin with. The polarization of politics and popular opinion that made it seem like people are living "in alternate realities", can only be the result of how social media can be used as tool in order to destroy a country from within. Not the sole culprit, but definitely a major reason, for sure.

  46. Lobo I0I Fenrir I0I on December 20, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    What about Disney Or streaming services?

  47. Sushil Rai on December 20, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    Facebook algorithm is toxic

  48. Raving Fan7642 on December 20, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    Unfortunately, Section 230 allow soc. media monopoly FB to ctl narrative and influence elections eg. block -ve Biden fam. stories, before Nov/3.

  49. No Limits on December 20, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    Yeah good luck with that
    Facebook have any government shit

  50. youtube_myspace_and_i_will_google_your_yahoo on December 20, 2020 at 10:59 pm

    I don’t work at facebook but I do work in the software development industry. Yes it is true that that FB is not "free" because they take your data and sell it. But facebook isn’t a utility that is necessary for work or daily life. Which is why people can just unplug from FB and some are even "happier without it". I think the big issue is the difference in how consumers see and companies see social media and privacy.

    I notice a lot of consumers mention that they are selling your private data like address, email and phone. But that’s already public information even before facebook. This is public record. Stuff that is more private is probably what pages you are looking at, wink wink. So my take is that there are things that can be scary about data collection but there are things that aren’t really all that scary to begin with, it’s just a matter of us knowing about it, aka public information like address and phone.

    I think selling and mining data is a great. It’s a part of the reason we get these services for free and the free app ecosystem is nice for consumers. However, having it be unchecked can be dangerous. Not sure I have read an article of FB doing something dangerous with it yet. But regardless, we should have stricter rules and regulations around data mining and selling.
