I don’t understand the Facebook controversy.
Did anyone think that Facebook wasn’t selling your information? Did you think it was private?
Did Facebook sell it to the wrong people, or did the people Facebook sold it to sell it to the wrong people? Once you give it away, it’s not yours anymore.
And what’s the difference to you if Facebook has it or Cambridge Analytics has it? I guarantee you that Cambridge Analytics isn’t the only one. If you thought you could keep any secrets on Facebook, you’re painfully naive.
Did you not know that Facebook had to be a big data miner? I mean, “It’s free, and it always will be.” And yet it’s worth billions of dollars. How do you think they do that?
I think maybe Facebook is in trouble because the government thought they had a monopoly on data harvesting.
There are no secrets. We live in a post-privacy society.
