    There's a great episode of Black Mirror that jarringly and somewhat humourously points out the absurdity and sadness of such "social rating" systems when taken a little further than we have today.

    The scene is set in a near future where social rating dictateseverything. People are as fake and dishonest as then can possibly be just to try to get their ratings as high as possible - it is the most important thing and maintaining a high rating must be had at any cost. The ratings dictate an entire hierarchy of "worthiness", for anything from bank loans to the jobs you can get, to the way people treat you on the street.

    I believe it is available on Netflix, and for download if you know where and how to look.
    Hi Mike and the group -

    "The Orville" did a show (Series 1 Episode 7) that aired October 26th, 2017 called "MAJORITY RULE" - https://www.fox.com/watch/4e9ac96523...f95a4f775facb/ (apx 44 min)

    As the group travels to the Stars they find out that a two man observational team of Anthropologists have disappeared on the planet that they are exploring, and no longer are responding to HQ their findings on one particular planet. That planet is wholly driven by SOCIAL MEDIA ratings. There are no official "police" forces that enforce constitutional or monarchical "laws", just a majority UP and DOWN thumbs tally count and a banning/shunning system that if one's personal scores (everyone wears a networked badge that tallies their up or down votes in society) drop below a majority determined threshold, they get put before the Group and TRIED by those watching the show.. The first few minutes of the show are so very typical of the "day to day" cellphone connected who live out their lives on the "net"..

    If they are able to Convince the viewers that they are "socially worthy", they get a chance to walk free. The hosts of the show badger the one on "social media trial" to drive audience viewpoint either up or down (usually down it seems), generating a frenzy. Eventually the one without the "good social graces, read "thumbs up", ends up getting brain reconditioned - to totally become socially acceptable. The end result being a "good member of society", generally responding as if they are on very potent mind altering drugs..

    The "society" portrayed is very similar to what appears to be modern 21st century earth.. That society explores what the writers thought it would be like if "majority rules", and there are no codified laws governing society. It is all about the upticks and downticks -

    Eventually the crew of the Orville arrives at the planet and doesn't quite realize how severe the thumbs down votes can be - one can be "neuralized" so to speak for having a low social score.

    One member of the away party is rather disrespectful (nothing we'd assume as something other than a juvenile act) of a statue honoring some key "founder" of the society. And some of the locals take out their cellphones and start video'ing away, of the "disrespectful act" of the away-team member. When the social thumbs down get high enough, the away team member is whisked away to be "tried" by social media..

    That's the synopsis - It was an interesting watch. Point being the social media experiment can be a very nasty means for control of individuals, societies and countries..

    well the next embezzlements strategies and the next fraudulent behaviors will be from geeks selling their know how to circumvent or change one's internet rating so that one can still have access to services.

    For the upper echelon, no problems there will be a parallel society (already existing)

    from what i see on facebook, when you start posting any comments, you have the bitches and bullies answering and taking over the comments sections, in fact trolling, right away and the good people stay away.

    Internet rating will be bullies ruling the world at a minute level. Planned by global bullies already in place.

    That was exactly portrayed on the Orville episode too.. A person could buy their thumbs UP points, buy a pre-configured "badge" which had sufficient up-ticks to get by.. And then it was up to them to maintain their proper societal acts and presentations to gain the "approval" of the group. Anyone could look at you and give you an uptick or thumbs down. "majority rule" but subject to manipulation by those who can, those who can buy the right PR agent (or media outlet venue) to promote their video's, songs, or ideology..

    Hello everyone:

    Here we go again.....
    facebook is the only thing on facebook that needs to be rated! There score should reflect their website etc.
    Personally I would give them a negative score since they have no credibility of any kind. Using other peoples information and now giving it a rating is absurd.
    No wonder the sheeple find facebook fascinating...dumb leads to dumber

    Shame on facebook. facebook is FAKE NEWS. They are stealing it from all their patrons. It's not even their information yet they use it as theirs and that's why it's fake ( not theirs )
