Do you consider facebook to blatantly exploit and abuse the data people upload to it, under the convenient "everyone uses it" line?
I do. I'm not here trolling - I am asking for details if any are known, since the issue of privacy is becoming more relevant to me now. Note - I'm far from paranoid about them - I have lots of photos of myself up there (carefully chosen, mind) - but if they are doing something immoral or outright exploitative, I am seriously considering "damage limitation" - IE, I cannot *undo* stuff already uploaded, but *I CAN* remove my account, and refuse to continue being a part of it. I am willing to sacrifice the "convenience" (??!! - read - ANNOYANCE! inane nature!!) of facebook, for the relative inconvenience of not being able to *immediately* contact friends and family.
Aside from the privacy issues, I feel (anti)-social media discourages people to get off their bums, WALK to someone's house and have a cuppa tea with them!
Thoughts and insight? technical as you like - thanks
