Mark Zuckerberg is pissing off a lot of people: THE WORLD HATES FACEBOOK

Mark Zuckerberg will be grappling with a growing problem in 2017: Facebook hate.

The social-networking giant has landed on a list of “America’s Most Hated Companies,” with users hacked off over its handling of everything from fake news to privacy concerns.

“Facebook has been a boon for shareholders, financial news blog 24/7 Wall St. noted as it published its ignominious list. “However, not everyone is pleased with the social media platform.”

Facebook’s name ended up in sixth place behind Comcast, Bank of America, Mylan, McDonald’s and Wells Fargo.

Trailing Facebook on the miserable list of 12 were the slightly less-hated Spirit Airlines, Dish Network, Sears, Sprint, Walmart and Charter Communications.

“In recent years, [Facebook] has drawn significant criticism over its privacy policies and the mass data collection of its users,” 24/7 Wall St. said.

“According the company’s statements, Facebook collects data on nearly anything it can, including who its users communicate with, users’ financial transactions, and the types of devices users are connecting with.”

More recently, Facebook has faced “sharp criticism for not doing enough to curb the spread of fake news leading up to the US presidential election,” the blog said.

Zuckerberg — who, according to recent disclosures has harbored aspirations for public service — was forced to react to complaints over fake news after initially dismissing them as “crazy.”

His decision to hire left-leaning sites to do the job, however, has drawn the ire of conservatives.

FACEBOOK also faces lawsuits from advertisers for faking how many people use Facebook and for hiding its shrinking userbase.
