    Corporate malfeasance

    Lack of privacy

    Corporate hegemony, unfettered by regulation

    Corporate greed

    Inflated stock prices guaranteed to make money for the wealthy by fleecing the ignorant

    idiotic consumerism

    Fake intimacy

      The main function of FB is social engineering, marketing and data mining. The (evil) genius of it is that FB has gotten everybody to buy in and willingly participate in it. It has become wildly popular while people have no understanding of the settings or how it truly functions as a whole.
      That would be of more of a concern.
      Fiction is being posted as reality on FB every second of each day. It's like being upset about a speck of dirt when your home has been destroyed by a mudslide.
