My shocked face…

Let me show it to you…

Apparently Zukie lied to Congress! Gee, what a surprise…

In 2011, they were ‘supposed’ to comply with an FTC privacy consent decree, BUT-

Facebook has reached data-sharing partnerships with at least 60 device makers — including Apple, Amazon, BlackBerry, Microsoft and Samsung — over the last decade, starting before Facebook apps were widely available on smartphones, company officials said. The deals allowed Facebook to expand its reach and let device makers offer customers popular features of the social network, such as messaging, “like” buttons and address books.

And it’s bad enough that a DEM is coming out saying something!

A Democratic congressman hammered Facebook and its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, following a report that the company is sharing large amounts of its users’ data with other companies.

“Sure looks like Zuckerberg lied to Congress about whether users have ‘complete control’ over who sees our data on Facebook,” Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) tweeted on Sunday.

So either Zukies ‘team’ isn’t talking to him, or he figured it would be lost in the details, since few on the Hill actually have a clue about what FB is really all about, much less the tentacles it has into the public…

Sigh… Remember, there IS no privacy on the Interwebz… And everything is forever (and archived). That stupid shit you did as a ‘kid’? It’s still out there. That picture you deleted as soon as you sobered up? Still there. That epic rant that went with the picture?

Yep, that too. And it’ll come back to haunt you when you least expect it… Forewarned is forearmed…

  1. So glad my party days were before digital cameras and cell phones with megapixel cameras…and the internet….

    Know what I mean?

  2. I’m not shocked either. One does not make billions by playing by the rules. My perspective is, if you don’t want the world to know it, don’t say it. If you don’t want the world to see it, don’t show it. And for Facebook, stop cancelling people’s account because they said something negative about liberals.

  3. Surprise Factor: ZERO.

    It also does not surprise me that people do stupid things. That happens. The amazing thing is how some seem to have need to publicize and even brag about such. And I do not mean, “Hey, don’t do that.. I did, and I got lucky.. here’s what went wrong and…” warnings, either.

  4. There is no privacy. I was sharing with a friend the other day how cell phone triangulation means that any time you’re ‘in range’, you are being tracked and that is recorded and retrievable. Law enforcement needs a search warrant. However, national interests being what they are and FISA warrants being shaked and baked with false information to obtain information that is then used for nefarious purposes politically is now in the public domain. What can we do about it?

    Not much, unless you want to live totally off the grid. The only place where you can still pull that off in the US is Alaska.

    • There are other places. Wyoming, outside of the cities, for example. 🙂

  5. I’m shocked! Shocked, I tell you. Shocked.

    The joy-boys, feminazis and freedom haters on The Hill are not, by and large, capable of understanding how FuckBook works or what the ramifications are. The few exceptions are the slave labor employed by the popularity contest winners. These are the young people who spend their time playing step ‘n fetchit and fending off advances from the multi-sexual erected set holding office. They might be rarely and secretly called upon to answer questions about just how social media works. Their answers are rarely understood.

    The other exception is the couple living in the double-wide at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. You don’t get to be a billionaire and have a wife like our First Lady without having something on the ball.

    I think CoffeyPot nailed it pretty well. If you wouldn’t shout it in a crowded room, don’t say it in email or on any social media platform. When you really have to communicate privately with your friends and family, use public key encryption and an anonymous email service.

  6. Shocked? No. Personally, I don’t give a rat’s ass about people’s opinion of me in general. Put it all out there, I’m protected by being boring.

  7. Well… duh.

    Gee, a company that gives people access to blabbing about everything for free! would have a secret, hidden plan to make money off of people, a plan that would involve other companies making money off of people. Quel Surprise… not.

  8. Hey Old NFO;

    With this stuff, I had considered closing my FB account more than once, but I figure the .gov agencies already have me on some watchlist so what the hell.

  9. All- Yep, we’re ALL on enough watchlists these days… sigh…

    Posted from my iPhone.

  10. Yep. Yep. Must seek remote area in Wyoming. You are safe there.
