Facebook says “F*&K Your Privacy”
As if things couldn’t have got any worse for Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook with Cambridge Analytica, now it has been rumored that Facebook has been keeping recorded videos of you that you never published. And to make matters worse, Facebook is being coy and “investigating” why this is happening. Clearly, they have been doing some covert stuff. Are they selling our data to the government, or has the government funded the entire thing from the start. The biggest conspiracy theory (outside of 9/11) of the last couple decades may result in potential legal battles and job loss.
This story came to light recently when a Select/All writer’s sister was looking through her downloaded data from her Facebook page and noticed there were a lot of videos that she had never published. They were videos of her playing a scale on the flute; some had errors, so she never posted them. This begs the question of, is it just uploaded videos or have they recorded us without our knowledge outside of using the platform?
Does Delete actually mean delete?
With the #metoo movement and now the Facebook scandal we can talk about the word “consent.” If it is considered illegal to kiss, grope or make comments towards someone of the opposite sex in a sexual nature without that person’s consent, by default Facebook keeping recorded videos of us without our consent is illegal, right?
