Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg’s “Frankenstein Moment,” Plus MH Market Updates


Cnnmoney9.28.2018manufacturedhomestocksmarketsreportsmhpronewsManufactured home industry marketers and others use social media, including Facebook, on a routine basis.  Facebook has been drawing fire for much of this year, and was catching heat prior to 2018 too. An update on the news surrounding Facebook – including the latest allegations and data breach impacting tens of millions – is our spotlight tonight.

If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.


The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  Headlines – at home and abroad – often move the markets.  So, this is an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

Part of this unique evening feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – which saves busy readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.

Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” © It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –



Watch this development with Jeff Bezo’s Amazon carefully.

It can become a game-changer for factor-builders, and/or could signal even more entries into the factory-building market.

Remember that the Daily Business News on MHProNews has previously reported that Facebook has hired ‘an army’ of lobbyists.  They are playing nice with Congress, and spending money to ease their way into what sources say are a hoped-for soft landing of regulation, vs. a feared antitrust break-up.

MHProNews has been spotlighting since the Trump Administration has come into office the various news and reports related to antitrust action.  While our focus has been on Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, we’ve also been tracking the tech giants, including Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google (i.e.: Alphabet, YouTube et. al.).

The Trump campaign’s Brad Parscale sounded off on one of those related issues recently.

Brad Says POTUS Trump is Right: More than Facebook & Twitter, Google Threatens Democracy, Online Freedom

With that backdrop, here’s tonight’s focus video and bullets from CNBC

Zuckerberg created a monster 14 years ago, and now he’s trying to figure out how to control it, said CBNC in the video further below.

CNBC’s Jim Cramer Says People in Silicon Valley tell me Facebook is a hated company that broke their trust

  • People in Silicon Valley say Facebook violated their trust, Jim Cramer says.
  • “This company is a rogue in the eyes of a lot of other tech companies,” Cramer says.
  • Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive officer and founder of Facebook Inc. attends the Viva Tech start-up and technology gathering at Parc des Expositions Porte de Versailles on May 24, 2018 in Paris, France.
  • A number of people in Silicon Valley hate Facebook and believe the social network’s problems will result in difficulties for everyone else in the tech community, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Friday.
  • “They say, ‘How do they even have any trust at all?'”
  • Cramer said people in recent days have told him off the record that Facebook broke the tech community’s trust.
  • “I’ve been out here, and everybody tells me off the record, they violated our trust,” Cramer said Thursday night on “Mad Money.” “Violation of trust is what brings in the government.”
  • Facebook did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
  • Cramer, whose charitable trust owns shares of Facebook, has been critical of the platform ever since reports on March 17 that Cambridge Analytica had harvested the data from more than 50 million users of the social network without their permission.
  • At the time, Cramer said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg were notably silent, and said Facebook should hire a special counsel to show it has nothing to hide.
  • Breaches of data privacy have compromised the personal information of millions of U.S. internet and social media users, prompting lawmakers to doubt that tech firms successfully regulate themselves.


  • Sandberg, along with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, spoke with lawmakers earlier this month on social media’s role in protecting elections from misinformation and disinformation.

Note, that MHProNews is not endorsing all of the points in the video below.  Frankly, as left-of-center media, their anti-Trump bias can crop up in various ways.  Be it Facebook or Google, leaders of both giants actually favored candidate Trump’s opposition candidate, namely, Secretary Hillary Clinton.  That gets no mention in their report below.
