    Unilever owns more than 400 brands including Lipton, Dove, Lux, Camay, Surf, Best Foods/Hellman's, Ben & Jerry's, Axe, VO5 and Mrs. Dash. One fourth of Unilever's advertising budget is spent on social media and now they're threatening to pull those ads unless Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon and Snapchat get serious about eliminating "fake news, racism, sexism, terrorists spreading messages of hate and toxic content directed at children." Good luck with that!

    Pediatricians, educators and mental health professionals say young children are not ready to have social media accounts and online relationships. I agree. Let kids enjoy being kids. When they're adults, they'll have plenty of time to spend 12 hours every day on a cell phone, tablet or computer.

    Every time I read a story about websites tracking Internet users, I picture Chico Marx's character in Duck Soup saying, "Shhh -- this is spy stuff."

    Belgian court orders Facebook to stop tracking Internet users or face fines of 250,000 Euros a day

    If you see a Facebook political ad that begins "Dear tovarisch" and is signed by Boris, Ivan, Sergei and Dmitri, it would be best to ignore it -- or report it.
