Zero Hedge: "Everything Is Fake": Ex-Reddit CEO Confirms Internet Traffic Metrics Are Bullshit

"Everything Is Fake": Ex-Reddit CEO Confirms Internet Traffic Metrics Are Bullshit

"It's all true: Everything is fake," tweeted Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao regarding a Wednesday New York Magazine article which reveals that internet traffic metrics from some of the largest tech companies are overstated or fabricated. In other words; they're bullshit. 

The metrics are fake.

Take something as seemingly simple as how we measure web traffic. Metrics should be the most real thing on the internet: They are countable, trackable, and verifiable, and their existence undergirds the advertising business that drives our biggest social and search platforms. Yet not even Facebook, the world’s greatest data–gathering organization, seems able to produce genuine figures. In October, small advertisers filed suit against the social-media giant, accusing it of covering up, for a year, its significant overstatements of the time users spent watching videos on the platform (by 60 to 80 percent, Facebook says; by 150 to 900 percent, the plaintiffs say). According to an exhaustive list at MarketingLand, over the past two years Facebook has admitted to misreporting the reach of posts on Facebook Pages (in two different ways), the rate at which viewers complete ad videos, the average time spent reading its “Instant Articles,” the amount of referral traffic from Facebook to external websites, the number of views that videos received via Facebook’s mobile site, and the number of video views in Instant Articles.

Can we still trust the metrics? After the Inversion, what’s the point? Even when we put our faith in their accuracy, there’s something not quite real about them: My favorite statistic this year was Facebook’s claim that 75 million people watched at least a minute of Facebook Watch videos every day — though, as Facebook admitted, the 60 seconds in that one minute didn’t need to be watched consecutively. Real videos, real people, fake minutes. -NYMag

This is fake, so is everything else. Your government, money, laws, etc.

Yes it's all fake which lends credibility to the theory we exist in some insane simulation.

It is a simulation - matter does not exist - it is nothing but energy:

8:10 to 8:42

Page 9, section 11 consciousness and energy and section 12 holograms.  Page 10, section 14 the consciousness matrix.

This is why 5G is so dangerous.  Like Tesla said to think in terms of energy and frequencies.

Yet, the biggest fakery are the people, turned into little companies, using trust accounts names as their own.  This fact alone, makes them liable for all those adhesion contracts existing between companies.

The key is your name...

tis why ur name is in all CAPITAL letters too I might add... all a flim-flam scam, without even a "Wham-Bam, Thank Ya M'am"  We're all born unto this planet as economical viable Cattle stock the second an HMO Doc smacks your newborn bottom to start the breathing transition from mama's embryonic liquid to this now toxic/polluted nitrogen/oxygen mix, now with added aluminum/barium/strontium and many more body-toxic death chems

..and with an added bonus of your very own instant built in debt the 1st day ya got here ...I forget the amount, what's it up to now?? ..$65K a person when born?? 

Why I never understood that saying, "It's a great time to be alive" ...  REALLY??...for who???
