        Maybe tomorrow they’ll ask us to send our passport scan in order to prove we’re real people?? The scariest thing is that nowadays there are still too many of those who believe everything and if they’ll receive passport request from “Facebook” they’ll scan it and send. Hope that everything will change for better soon. The only thing we can do now is to refuse from Facebook.

      I never thought that Facebook provides a real security for its users and after that scandal and the news that they scan all the messages I decided to refuse from this network.

      I’m sure that all social networks collect our information. Also browsers and other services. we can not avoid it. I would like to understand at what point they can use it and for what purpose.

        They use it for whatever they chose to so you have no control at all. The recent Cambridge Analicita is a perfect example FB did nothing wrong in a legal sense and nore did CA as they paid FB to use that data as they saw fit.

      I know FBI got involved investigating who was behind the massive FB security breach last year? Any information on that? I can’t find any.

      No one platform is safe

      Apparently FaceBook is the only social platform that is involved in data retention practices. What I don’t understand is, the company earns alot. Even after privacy issues and penalties, users are still using the service.

      What is the need to incorporate such data retention laws and frauds. Online privacy has become a scare commodity.
