As Lando once said: This deal is getting worse all the time…
Yep there was a time that facebook was the most private of the networks. That day has long passed and we have seen facebook do little to help it’s users to protect their privacy and their content.I’m a fairly tech/web savvy person and even I got confused with how facebook privacy kept on changing for the worse. I really really hated how facebook kept on hi-jacking links. I also did not appreciate the LIKE system spreading like a cancer all over the WWW. So this morning:
- I removed ALL my LIKES (there were A LOT over the years)
- changed all my interests to “Facebook Privacy Sucks”
- deleted my mobile numbers
- and finally de-activated my account.
I might re-activate my account to get access to my company facebook page. For now facebook is off for a few days (maybe even a week) as a sign of protest. Heck I’ve successfully quit Instant Messaging, facebook with it’s annoyances is much much easier.
Use email instead of Facebook messaging. You never know what they’d do to your messages.
