The CIA couldn't have asked for a better birthday present.
Mark Zuckerberg might be conflating the real world with anime
You can't mention CIA without invasion of privacy, which brings us to Facebook.
After crying hoarse about Apple's App Tracking Transparency update and how it will destroy small businesses (one of which incredibly happens to be Facebook), Mark Zuckerberg now claims that Facebook will emerge stronger due to it.
Zuckerberg should stop binge watching anime, because corporate warfare rarely mimics Dragon Ball Z.
Instagram will lure away children before they can join TikTok
Mark Zuckerberg is much smarter than the last story would lead you to believe, because his latest idea of luring underage children to Instagram is a stroke of evil genius.

Come September, Google is planning to get its employees back to their daily office commutes. Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony Fauci keeps warning how new virus strains have practically rendered vaccines useless.
