@DownPW yeah, I seem to spend a large amount of my time trying to educate people that there’s no silver bullet when it comes to security.
Facebook fined for forcing users to agree to personalised ads
Facebook never learns and clearly doesn’t think the various privacy laws created to protect individuals apply to them. Yet another example of Facebook thinking it can break rules and never be brought to account.
This is a blatant breach of privacy and shouldn’t go unpunished in my view. Will be interesting to see how Facebook tries to squeeze out of this one.
@phenomlab unfortunately, the biggest problem is the US is not as privacy friendly. Big companies always lobby and win in Congress.
What Facebook/Meta does in the EU is exact the same thing that it is doing in the US. And Congress did not care about Meta until they were involved in election related scandal.
@crazycells exactly. Not so long ago, we had the Cambridge Analytica scandal in the UK. Meta (Facebook) seem to be the ultimate “Teflon” company in the sense nothing seems to stick.
