Facebook is a Surveillance Company Lying to the World About Being “Social Media”

Quote:



In response to the ban, Edward Snowden fired off two tweets on Saturday criticizing Facebook, and claimed social media companies were simply “surveillance companies” who engaged in a “successful deception” by rebranding themselves.

Facebook makes their money by exploiting and selling intimate details about the private lives of millions, far beyond the scant details you voluntarily post. They are not victims. They are accomplices. https://t.co/mRkRKxsBcw

— Edward Snowden (@Snowden) March 17, 2018

Businesses that make money by collecting and selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as "surveillance companies." Their rebranding as "social media" is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.

— Edward Snowden (@Snowden) March 17, 2018

Snowden isn’t the first big name to call out Silicon Valley companies over their data collection and monitoring practices, or their notorious intersection with the U.S. Government.

In his 2014 book: When Google Met WikiLeaks, Julian Assange describes Google’s close relationship with the NSA and the Pentagon.

Around the same time, Google was becoming involved in a program known as the “Enduring Security Framework” (ESF), which entailed the sharing of information between Silicon Valley tech companies and Pentagon-affiliated agencies “at network speed.” Emails obtained in 2014 under Freedom of Information requests show Schmidt and his fellow Googler Sergey Brin corresponding on first-name terms with NSA chief General Keith Alexander about ESF Reportage on the emails focused on the familiarity in the correspondence: “General Keith . . . so great to see you . . . !” Schmidt wrote. But most reports overlooked a crucial detail. “Your insights as a key member of the Defense Industrial Base,” Alexander wrote to Brin, “are valuable to ensure ESF’s efforts have measurable impact.” –Julian Assange

Kim Dotcom has also opined on social media’s close ties to the government, tweeting in February “Unfortunately all big US Internet companies are in bed with the deep state. Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. are all providing backdoors to your data.”

Because YouTube belongs to Google and Google is the biggest supplier of user data to the US Govt. Everything you do on any Google service, any search, any email, ends up in the NSA spy cloud. And Google provides custom search technology to the Govt to spy on you better. #Pirates https://t.co/GPqy7L5lvr

Unfortunately all big US Internet companies are in bed with the deep state. Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. are all providing backdoors to your data. You may have noticed they all favor the Democrats. Why? Obama made them feel special for sharing your data. Privileges!

— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) February 28, 2018

.@Google has built a custom search engine for NSA/CIA to index the global mass surveillance data from FVEY. #DontBeEvil #DoTheRightThing

People Are Downloading Their Facebook Data And Are Horrified By What They're Finding | IFLScience

Quote:
While most people would expect Facebook to have data on how they use the app, they're a little shocked to discover it has access to everything from all the contacts on their phone to a record of every text message they've ever sent or received, even if they don't use Facebook Messenger. But that's not all Facebook has.
Thanks from Lyzza

They also create zombie or shadow accounts. So if there is a person who you and your facebook friends are talking about but they dont have an account the algorithm creates an account for this person and builds a bio for them.


It is evil.

I think it was John McAfee of McAfee Security who said: if you're using a free tool or service online, you're the product! Makes me glad I deactivated my Facebook account early after I got talked into it about 8 years ago! I do have a Twitter account, but I don't use my name nor use it for any personal stuff.

It's easy to avoid all the surveillance social media when you're old; but this is a problem for young people who need this crap if they're looking for work or even using it for work.

I like Facebook.

I'm not scared of it.

I use it for personal, social and business purposes.

I don't have anything in my life to be ashamed of - and I kinda like having the damned ads we get being things I'm actually interested in.
