Facebook, our friend or foe?

Post by haircutcut » 30 Dec 2018, 07:52

Facebook video links are used here in some recent posts. I do not use them and these are my views

For our producers and content makers who use instagram or facebook as it is free and easy . without knowing these platforms collects data about all your visitors, that data is used to direct away to their clients who pay for advertising . in other words those who pay on their platform are going to take away your visitor and potential clients money. Easy way to make Billions.

Facebook also have to show data they collect , Anyone can check individual data records including data collected about the devices used or family used when accessing their platforms.

Copied this from facebook website more details available there.

This can include information in or about the content that you provide (e.g. metadata), such as the location of a photo or the date a file was created.

Data with special protections:

Networks and connections.
We collect information about the people, We also collect contact information if you choose to upload, sync or import it from a device (such as an address book or call log or SMS log history), which we use for things such as helping you and others find people you may know and for the other purposes listed below.

So, what I do is,
- do not use the app for anything
- as much as possible, use browser (ex firefox never chrome)
- most preferred duckduckgo browser with all permissions disabled
