Trying to explain huge data breaches that occurred to millions of FB users.


It's amazing how we now live in the era of stealing people's info, hacking and spying and the extent these people go to to get into your personal info.

And the marketing aspect, another forced upon us issue we have to face everywhere we go.

I know FB keeps track of your posts and categorizes your political leanings...it's like once you get on the Internet, your are so vulnerable to these shenanigans. It's the Wild Wild West of breaches and breaching. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 97 days ago -

They even track you after you leave their site, lol.
Darn "cookies"...:( 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 97 days ago -

I'm very impressed with Zuckerberg- I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but he comes across as very open and determined to make this right- 

Prolix Raconteur --- 97 days ago -

When asked if he felt FB has a monopoly on social media, he replied "It doesn't feel like it".

Gimme a break!?

No one is forced to use the free service or even to be on the internet at all. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 97 days ago -

I didn't say anyone was forced. But once you go there, they take liberties with your posts and interests just to market you to death when they already are subsidized by advertisers. Using your profile info or expressed interests to spam you even when you leave their site is a bit much considering we already HAVE to view their ads when were online. That's very different imo. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 97 days ago -

I don't see him as having a Monopoly...yes his idea was unique and it's been fabulously successful but there is Instagram, Twitter, and so much more....I see a monopoly as someone who blocks out any competition and there's so much social media now.

Actually, a lot of that is Google and your browser that follow you around. Further, every time you take a stupid quiz on Facebook and that sort of thing it let's you know your info will be shared.

I am only going to discuss legal aspects - not hacking related aspects.

Is Facebook free? Some think yes - that would be wrong.

Typically/always - "they" (service providers)
Kingwoodunderground.com/Google/Bing/Twitter/Facebook/....)

ask for the user's permission.

Most users don't have a clue what they have authorized the service providers to do.

Too often users act dumbfounded when they are told that the "click through accepting of the provider's terms" is giving the service providers their permission for all sorts of things.

User choose to trade their information for the services provided to them. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 97 days ago -

They actually KNOW people won't read all their TOS agreement. It's all done on purpose.

How about the TOS don't take liberties with people's privacy as a standard procedure, or put that in the first sentence so you are showing legitimate issues up front instead of burying it on page 3.

Apparantly the Senate committee agrees bc they called him out on that. 

Miss Understanding --- 97 days ago -

he said:time you take a stupid quiz on Facebook and that sort of thing it let's you know your info will be shared.?

she said: They actually KNOW people won't read all their TOS agreement. It's all done on purpose.




It is not a TOS. It is a SHORT warning you get right in your face on FB. If you don't read it then it is your personal problem your info is hacked. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 96 days ago -

So, no one who ever took one of those quizzes got their info breached? Lol. 

jackass --- 96 days ago -

Facebook is just the tip of the iceberg

Comprehension problem I see. EVERYONE WHO TOOK A QUIZ DID GET BREACHED. THEY WARN YOU THAT THEY ARE SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH THE THIRD PARTY. IT IS CLEAR AS THE DAY IN YOUR FACE WARNING. Sorry you missed it! 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 96 days ago -

Lol. And I SAID MaNY WhO DiDNt TAkE tHe qUIz hAD iNfO hAcKEd. 

Miss Understanding --- 96 days ago -

The mod is making fun of me. Imagine if I did that to her. I would get iced.
Doubled standard

Get me a sammich

How it worked was this Cambridge quiz not only took the info of the person taking the quiz, but also the info of that users friends. Without their knowledge or consent. That is what the real issue is. I wasn't hacked, nor were my friends, and I honestly could care less if I was because I'm not that interesting, but the issue isn't that the quiz takers info was taken, that's a given, it was that it also took everyone connected with the takers info
That's a huge breach of security and privacy. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 95 days ago -

Thanks, Joelle, rationality is so nice to see!
We need an emoji for breath of fresh air...:)
