Who cares about all this FB stuff? We don’t own this space, we never did. It is -and always was, just a playground.
We are in unknown territory, all the data is out there, and now companies that have been using it are having to answer for it. Of course I do not want to be watched or followed, but honestly I have nothing to hide in my data.
Pardon my ignorance here, but so what if FB and data mining companies took my data? I’m not partaking in criminal activity, and really don’t care if they see that I clicked on my fair share of clickbait articles and quizzes. Everyone knows I adore well-groomed hairy men, so no shame there. What else? As long as they don’t steal my identity, my activity is fair game for using an outstanding free service, no? Heck, between using a smartphone, WiFi, major search engines, etc… data is all out there anyway for grabs. Why is everyone freaking out? Isn’t this practically the new normal?
When US government needed Apple CEO) Tim Cook’s help to unlock a phone and catch terrorists, he refused, wanting to protect the privacy of the terrorists. But the most popular app on his phone- Facebook- is selling our data, our phone numbers, and precious family photos, and Cook remains silent. Such is the liberal mentality- protect the terrorists but who cares about innocent civilians.
