"Do people really think that anything they post to social media is private"

"social media" is to "think" as {no possible comparison}

It's not private. It effectively belongs to the entity that owns the hard drive it's stored on. So if FB gets a subpoena shoved at it, guess what they'll do? At least Micro-shaft made an effort at looking like they'd protect user privacy. Apple went a step further. FB just bends over and caves, no apparent opposition.

(found it)

basically if it's a warrant or subpoena, if they have no legit reason to object, they'll do it. AFAIK
