Facebook Is Not A Court Of Law

Does Facebook have so much power it can throw an election? lilac tree emojis emoticonsThere are many folks out there who get their collective “shirts in a knot” about the presumption that all statements that appear on Facebook must have with them the solid (whatever that means) evidence that would render the material given as “valid.”

The shifting sands of intelligence gathering and elusive rating scale of what is or is not considered to be of high priority because of the reputation of the source or the immediacy of the need to respond given certain circumstances are all part of the mix of analysis.
