NEVER trust Facebook! DELETE your Facebook account if you value your privacy!

Facebook data breach 2016 & 2018

If the current scandal involving the leaking and sharing of personal 50,000,000+ Facebook accounts with third parties, usually commercial, is any indication of the trustworthiness of Facebook, think again! As the graphic illustration above makes all to clear, millions of Facebook accounts were leaked in 2015 (the graphic above erroneously reads 2016.) I clearly remember that fiasco. But the virus goes much deeper. Facebook has always and without compunction shared the personal data of all of its users (let alone 50 million), unless users instruct Facebook not to do so. And most of us do not instruct Facebook not to do so. The leakage of private data over the years is nothing short of scandalous in the extreme. So I urge you to DELETE your Facebook account if you value your privacy! Make them feel the pinch. Open social networking to other more trustworthy providers. They are out there. Make Facebook pay dearly for this quasi-criminal breach of private data.
