facebook doesn't sell user information itself. what they sell is ad
placement based on that information. there is a difference.

the information facebook has is *extremely* valuable and not something
they're about to sell to anyone.

that said, much of that information is public and easily obtained by
anyone. this is particularly true if the user consents to share their
information with an app they chose to run or whom they choose to like
or follow.

and it ain't just facebook. plenty of companies track user data and
sell ads based on it, with a prime example being store loyalty cards.
do you want to save 10% ? just let us track your purchases. the ads you
see on the back of the receipt are targeted based on the stuff you
bought, and since they have your name/address, they can sell that to
interested parties.

credit bureaus have a ****load of very personal data and will happily
sell any or all of it, or in the case of equifax, let anyone access it
simply by using admin/admin to log in (really). what's worse, is that
equifax paid off the right people and got away with it.

The political organization, Cambridge Analytica, misused the
information, and lied to FB. FB did not exercise due diligence against
such misuse.


cambridge analytica used an existing api to obtain user data, which
users consented to provide.

the problem is that users don't realize what it is they're consenting
to nor what can be done with the data once it's shared.

and again, it's not just facebook. sign up for that store loyalty card
and the store can (and does) sell your purchase habits.

there's nothing facebook or anyone else can do about it once
information is out of their control and whether it was misused is
subjective.

facebook has made some changes to what apps can access, but if users
consent to share data with an app, there's nothing anyone can do.

a bigger problem is that people who *aren't* on facebook have internal
facebook profiles.

zuckerberg also knowingly lied to congress, except that they were too
stupid to realize it. he was very well coached.

Let’s just say that a Faustian arrangement comes into play, and you end
up
with Trump in the White House.

Hay did you create a horror scenario?
Didn't Trump create enough of a nightmare for our country.
Masochist!!


Not me. I have never had a FB subscription, and I didn’t vote for the SOB.
However, there are more than enough of our population willing to be conned
by the guy selling snake oil at his medicine shows. Facebook just sucked in
more of the crazies from the fringe. Let’s just see how many of those WV & KY
coal mining jobs come back, and how many jobs come back to the steel &
aluminum mills. Like Faust, those folks are all taking part in the Mephisto
plan.

So you noticed.

I hope that you also noticed that Steve Bannon, and the Breitbart/Bannon
financial backers Robert & Rebekah Mercer are the money behind Cambridge
Analytica. Also, through 2012 to 2017 Steve Bannon was the Vice President of
Cambridge Analytica.
