Toppling an Industry Titan
How to Profit from Facebook's Demise
The world as you know it is about to completely change. A new technology is coming that’s going to connect us in ways we haven’t even imagined yet.
And it’s going to allow us to do things we’ve only dreamed of...
I’m talking about virtual reality that’s so immersive you can’t tell it isn’t real life, and real life that’s so augmented by technology that it feels like a video game.
Soon, you won’t even be allowed to drive your own vehicle in some places.
We’ll have fleets of self-driving vehicles escorting passengers around every city on the planet.
Your Own Personal Taxi Cab
Think about riding in an autonomous taxi for a minute...
You don’t have to drive (you’re not even allowed to since human drivers have been deemed unsafe in metropolitan areas).
You don’t have to keep an eye on the driver to make sure he’s not running up the meter.
You’ve got nothing but time on your hands. And the inside of your taxi is covered in tech we’ve only seen in movies so far.
It’s able to link up with your cell phone and the RFID chip in your wallet to identify you.
Then it links your name to the reams of data that’s been collected about your likes and dislikes, spending habits, spots you frequent, etc.
And then it starts dropping targeted advertisements into the immersive experience that riding in a cab has become.
You pass a burger joint that’s getting good reviews. The taxi sees a lot of Five Guys transactions on your account and figures you might like to try a burger. So it flashes a coupon up on the screens surrounding you.
“Just touch here to download this coupon for a free burger and save the location to your Apple or Android device,” it reads.
It’s both awesome and creepy at the same time.
Awesome because you’re not going to have to sit through a Pampers ad if you’re a 20-year-old college student with no kids.
But creepy because as soon as you get inside, the taxi will know you’re a 20-year-old college student with no kids who just ordered Cheese Whiz on Amazon Fresh.
But it’s also a major opportunity for some companies and a death knell for others...
It All Ads Up
In the final quarter of 2018, Facebook generated $16.9 billion in total revenue. Of that, $16.6 billion came from advertising.
TV ads are dying. Sure, you can reach a massive audience with a national television ad. But what if you’re a regional business? You’re spending a lot of money to advertise to folks who just can’t use your business.
And there’s really no way of knowing if you’re going to reach the people who are interested in buying whatever it is you’re selling. If it’s rare coins and your ad is airing during Saturday morning cartoons, you’re probably not getting many calls.
So the only way to make your ad spending really count is to go online. And while there are a lot of other ad networks besides Facebook, few have the kind of power the social network does.
If it decides to stop advertising your business or products, your business will most likely fail.
And we’ve seen how easy it is to get on the wrong side of the fickle CEOs at the helm of these tech industry titans.
Mark Zuckerberg is a prime example of a CEO who doesn’t mind attacking individuals, businesses, industries, or even entire communities.
And he’s also a prime example that money doesn’t buy class. Remember when he got caught calling Facebook users stupid for trusting him?
His exact words were, “They trust me — the dumb f***s.”
And he was referring to the users’ willingness to give up the data he was collecting that put his company in control of the online advertising market.
But Zuckerberg is starting to trade in his cocky, disdainful attitude for a new, more anxious one. And that’s because he already knows what I’m about to tell you is 100% true...
The writing is already on the wall. Facebook’s massive evil empire is on the verge of collapse. In fact, the first cracks have already formed.
Now it’s just a matter of time before the castle that Zuck built comes crashing down around him.

How to Topple a Titan
You see, Facebook has gotten so powerful because of people’s addiction to the internet.
But it wasn’t until you could put that internet in your pocket and take it with you that Facebook really came to be the massive company we know today.
It was the fist reconstruction of the internet that put it on the map as a financial force. That was called 3G. And it was later upgraded to 4G.
It ushered in the smartphone, and people began to use the internet in a completely new way.
Before, almost all web use came from a desktop, wired-in computer. Today, just 37% of internet traffic comes from a computer. The vast majority comes from mobile devices.
That new access to consumers shifted the power and led to the rise of brand-new companies like Facebook.
Fast-forward to today, and Americans are spending more time than ever connected to their smartphones — five hours every single day, according to TechCrunch — all because of the first reconstruction of the web.
This is happening at the same time as fewer and fewer people are watching television, listening to the radio, or reading the paper.
That’s the crux of why Facebook has become so powerful.
Because it’s been gifted a monopoly over the digital advertising industry — a $39.9 billion monopoly.
But a new web reconstruction is upon us. And as 3G and 4G signaled the birth of Facebook’s dominance, this one will sound the death knell for the evil empire.
But investors can do far more than just celebrate the downfall of a self-righteous, entitled, and egotistical executive officer.
They can collect massive payouts for helping dismantle the company he built.
That's because there’s a group of extremely influential people who want to see Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg gone.
Three of them are some of the richest billionaires on the planet. And one of them is president of (in my humble opinion) the greatest country on Earth.
I’m talking about Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook, and the Donald himself.
The four of them are flexing some serious muscles to unseat Zuck from his throne. Musk, Bezos, and Cook are pumping billions individually into this tech.
And Trump’s disdain for Zuckerberg is well known by the public. But he’s also using all the influence he has behind closed doors to take Facebook down as well.
Part of it is their contempt for Zuckerberg. Part is because they’re jealous of the size of his company. But most of it is driven by desire for profit.
Facebook’s Billionaire Bounty
You see, this year, the plan to topple Facebook goes into full effect. And everyone participating will be splitting a multimillion-dollar payout.
There’s more than $36 million to be had in 2019 — even after the insiders have taken their cut.
And every year until Facebook’s ultimate demise, the payments are expected to get bigger and bigger. Plus, when the company’s finally dead and gone, the payouts will keep coming AND keep growing!
But there’s not much time before the checks get cut. So anyone who wants to get in on this deal needs to act now.
If you’re name isn’t on the list by May 9, you won’t be eligible to collect your check.
And I’m not talking about a $5.99 refund check from the grocer.
I’m talking about checks as big as $14,900 going out to folks just like you.
But you have to get your name on the distribution list before May 9 or you’ll miss the boat.
And even if you couldn't care less about Facebook and the Zuck, you can’t tell me you’re not interested in profits like that.
So take a few minutes today. Read this free report on how to get yourself on the distribution list. And start cashing in come May 9.
