Dear Facebook user,

I have a special message for you containing important information. Please read it in full, even though it is longer than the 400 characters or so that you may be used to reading on Facebook, hopefully you have clicked through and are now reading this here.

I'm not going to blast you for agreeing to the terrible slavery terms-of-service agreement that you agreed to when you first signed up to Facebook. The agreement that no one reads, which states very clearly, that everything you post on Facebook now belongs to them.

I'm not going to blast you for knowing that Facebook is a CIA data-mining platform designed to gather your data and, worse, all the data about your friends, and their friends, connections, whereabouts, thoughts, images, mobile cell phone numbers, and more.

I'm not going to pull to pieces your excuse for being on Facebook, claiming that if it was not for Facebook you'd not know about the Libya War, or this or that, even though you'd know more about those things if you were not on Facebook but elsewhere.

Instead, I'm going to make an appeal to you, if you think Facebook is still an important tool, and that clicking Like buttons has an impact on the world, or that follower numbers matter and show that Obama is more important than Mathaba.

The appeal is a simple one. If it does make any difference, follower numbers of fan pages, then for that difference to be real, it has to be quite big. A single person clicking a like button, isn't going to make much difference. So let it be ten thousand or more, here is how.

First, go to http://www.facebook.com/mathaba.net and then click the Like button somewhere near the top of that page. If you have already liked the page, then you won't see a like button.

Next, please look at the image below, to find an almost hidden menu (it has stuff like Privacy and Terms on it, so of course Facebook don't want you to find that stuff easily), and click on "Share" to share this page with all your friends. Please add a note to your friends asking them to also please share it with their friends too.


If everyone would do this, we'd soon have one million fans, and then, we can say that Facebook has made a difference to the media control landscape, so let us see how many of you can take this simple action, along with the note to your friends when you share it, and what results it brings. Help us to change the world through the power of truthful news and information.

And some good news: we're working very hard on bringing something much better than Facebook to you, after having failed with Diaspora (due to rats in the kitchens), please stay tuned, we're sure you'll love it, and for those who are addicted to Facebook you'll be able to use it without losing your friends, and giving you more privacy when you post and read from your Facebook account.

Now, please, do the above Share...
