Trump loves Facebook. When Facebook came out with their “TV in your hand” technology Trumps people jumped all over it. Facebook is a VERY big reason Trump won. That’s why we are seeing this stupidity today, the swamp wants to keep Trump from using social media psychographic data to tailor his message to the voters in the next election cycle.
All this shit is VERY old. Bill Clinton used the same type of data modeling years ago to tailor direct mail. The guy that built those systems was Vinod Gupta, this guy:
The technology they clinton’s people developed would morph in to database systems that the Democrats used to gin up the “hanging chad” issue in Florida. That event was contrived by data modeling. They modeled data all over the country such that they could quickly generate groups of people (democrats) who would complain about “whatever” so they could fight against the Republicans.
Both the Republicans and Democrats have had extremely mature and exotic database systems for years. These have been built by aggregating various data from a large number of sources. Then Facebook came along and built a system (the users built it actually) that made the Republican and Democrat systems look like crap. Zuckerberg sold data to both sides. In the last election cycle Trump had people who built incredible psychographic systems using social media. Trump saw the incredible value of the Facebook video streamer. Trump wiped the floor with the other side using data and the Democrats didn’t even know it was happening. It was all hidden because the Democrats were excluded. People asked me if Trump was going to win, my reply at the time was “if anyone can answer that Mark Zuckerberg can right now”. Zuckerberg had all the metrics. He knew Trump was going to win. He HAD to.
The politicians are afraid of Zuckerberg. This guy isn’t going to be touched by the swamp. The swamp wants him on their side.
