I notice in the FT and Express today a report that Facebook reveals more than people realise about their personal details. Read More
Of course it does, it was designed that way.
Facebook is nothing more than an information harvesting site, designed to lure users to subliminally reveal their most personal intimate details, and as usual, with it’s addictive nature, we’ve all fallen for it. YouTube is exactly the same, as indeed are Google +.
You are being watched, accessed and sorted by these global spying machines. Isn’t it clever how advertising on these sites fits exactly into your interest groups?
So why are we on Facebook then. Well to be honest, I rarely even look at it, and don’t ever expect me to respond to tweets either. We set up twitter and facebook accounts to share content from the site, it’s all done by auto posting. I’ve done the same with Tumblr and blogger, but will never post anything directly personal to me. Paranoid, too right I am. The internet is a great tool, use it, but don’t be controlled by it. Don’t even start me on smart phones.
