Caller is having trouble accessing her second Facebook account. Leo says that Facebook has locked one out. Leo says that Facebook doesn't want you to have multiple accounts, though many do. What Leo recommends is using separate browsers (like Chrome and Firefox) for each Facebook account. Or, you can completely log out and then clear your cookies, you can re-log in with the second account.
Leo says that when it first began, Twitter called itself the "free speech wing" of the free speech party. But after recent bans of Alex Jones, Leo ponders what happened. The bottom line is, if you are for the first amendment, you have to be for unpopular speech as well. But make no mistake, Twitter is a private company, and it can ban anyone for any reason.
Twitter purged over a million bots and fake accounts, and Wall Street reacted by a 20% loss in Twitter's stock value. The reason? The Social Media giant is contracting, not growing. Or, in reality, the perception of Twitter's actual active users is far less than Wall Street likes and as such, many investors sold their stock.
Twitter banned a ton of fake accounts this quarter, and as a result, not only lost 1 million active users, but also saw their stock take a dump. Even though they made $20 million in the process. But Wall Street says that Twitter isn't growing, and as a result, the value declined. Even Facebook took a hit this week, in the single largest stock loss in Wall Street trading history. $120 Billion in lost value. Mark Zuckerberg lost over half his personal wealth. But Leo says he'll likely bounce back over time.
George has an iPhone 7 Plus and the screen goes black when he's in Facebook. Leo says that it's possible that his case could be squeezing the phone, causing it to shut down. Also, restarting the phone once a week will clear out any code that could cause problems.
Scooter X says that in iOS 9, there was an issue where Facebook would go dark. So George should make sure he's updated. While he's at it, he should just uninstall Facebook and download and reinstall the app. There could be a problem with Facebook. There was something similar happening a few years ago.
Florentina lost her home recently and wants to use Facebook to raise money to get into a new place. Leo says that Facebook is ideal for that because everyone is there and she can run her campaign directly from her feed. She should go to facebook.com/fundraisers. She can do everything from non-profit fundraising to personal campaigns for emergency purposes, which this certainly qualifies. Another option is GoFundMe.com.
Leo encouraged Ryan to start a blog. He's a musician and has been writing a blog for about a year with Control Forever. He's gotten into crowdfunding with IndieGogo for his current album as well. Leo says to use social media like Facebook to get the word out, but don't rely on it.
Check out Ryan's Indiegogo page for his new band JKHD.
Joy was trying to post an article on Facebook and got a message that it was blocked according to the EU GDPR regulations. Leo says that Facebook may have thought she was in the EU and would fall under those rules. So Facebook blocked the article. But it may be that Facebook is blocking articles related from European sources. Some news agencies may be blocking EU IP addresses in order to skirt GDPR regulations.
When visits Facebook, he's been having issues where the page scrolls on its own. Leo says if it happened everywhere, it could be a stuck down key, but since it only happens on Facebook, that's an indicator for software. Could someone be taking over his account? Leo says probably not. Just in case, however, he should go into his Facebook settings and turn on 2nd factor authentication. Then if someone tries to hack his account, it'll send him a notification asking if he's logging in. If it's not him, they can't log in.
