Facebook Breaking The Law Again?
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg & Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix, Stealing and Selling Your Data!
As we are sure most of you know, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg & Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix are in the news for violating the Law. Zuckerberg was placed under heavy restrictions last time back in 2011 when he was forced to make changes in the Algorithms that collect your data while using the Facebook social media platform. This latest Data Breach is going to cost the Social Media Giant Billions of Dollars in fines.
Basically what’s going on is that Facebook is using your keystrokes (everything you type while using FB) to compile your online trends. If you are an online shopper, you will be bombarded with Ads of the things you are looking for. Nothing wrong with that if that is what you want. Back in 2011 this is what was changed by force when the FTC brought them in front of congress. Facebook is supposed to allow the user to set whether they want their info sent to third parties. You are supposed to be able to set your privacy settings. However, even if you do set your account to maximize privacy, Facebook is still allowing Third Party partners like Cambridge Analytica to Data Mine through your personal information.
Now here’s how it works. Every keystroke you make on your phone or computer, is recorded in a folder. Whether you hit enter/send or not. Data mining operations will hack into these folders and steal your search history, purchase history, things you type, etc. They do this to determine your spending habits and what you are looking for. They then use this data to either sell to other companies or use it for the Ad Serving Software to serve you Ads from the sellers that have what you have been looking for. They also use the email addresses of you and your contacts to send political propaganda and agendas right to your screens. This is the most current hot topic trending now. Did Facebook and Cambridge use FB User Data to market a political Agenda in Trump elections, and others elections around the world?!
So what can be done? Well the only thing that can be done to successfully ensure Facebook does not sell your Data is to delete your account and never use it again! Period. There is nothing anyone can do to stop them from breaching trust and selling the data. You ever wonder how the CEO of a FREE Online App made Billions so fast? It was selling your Private Data! They already got fined back in 2011 and they are going to be fined a few more billion. But will that stop them? NO! How do I know? Because it didn’t stop them last time.
