Surely this isn't fair on them
Now I'm not one to stand up for facebook, but I do believe that old saying that I was always taught about the ol' information superhighway (yes, I'd love to bring that back lol) where common knowledge was 'if the service is free, you are the product.'
These moaning kids don't seem to understand that they signed up for this, hell they even agreed to it in the terms and conditions, even if those were something along the lines of the Big Zucker-B owning their souls for all eternity, and they still sucked it up and uploaded all of their data to Him without thought.
Then someone came along and said "omg, they SOLD the data we gave them for FREE! All I got was a communications system and an infinite photo upload depository. For free."
I know I'm doing the same for apple simply by owning a product, and bY Google (by its own definition of flogging me for ads every second of every day), but FFS what did people really expect? They'd hold on to all of their photos and thoughts for free, and they're going to continue to do so without making a penny from them? COME ON! If you're really that stupid you probably deserve to vote for christmas because an advert on Facebook told you to. Gobble gobble.
All hail the hypnotoad!
Disclaimer: I have no social media accounts (apart from enforced SSO test accounts at work) and never have done. My voting data is even more safe as it's either Labour or bust, and as I'm in the North it's normally bust. As me old pa said "they're all bastards anyway, just get on with it yourself".
