The Evolution of Privacy on Facebook. by Matt McKeon
I have always assumed that my any information I put anywhere but my own domain is totally public. (You should too).
But what Facebook is doing is really very sleazy. For instance:
- They keep copies of all your pictures. ALL of them. If you take your down, they still keep theirs. And they reserve the right to use them.
- They use your profile picture and information in other public places as a marketing tool: “So-and-so liked this too…..”
- They sell their your information and make a profit off of you. (It’s not really yours once they “take” it.)
- They have a copy of EVERYTHING you ever did on Facebook. Your posts; your likes; your friends; your PAST friends. EVERYTHING. Not sure on this, but I’m willing to bet they have applied their new (UN)privacy policies retroactively.
I think it’s high time we let them know we UNLIKE this!!!
