I've been telling people for years, if you don't want something out there, don't fucking put it out there! It really is that simple.

Don't get your news from a fucking social media site and this won't be a problem.

there are so many problems greater than what the fuck happens on facebook.
Not disagreeing with you...but, how does that fit into the (not discriminating) against those that you are censoring? I mean, it is technically a business...correct?

What I'm getting at is a baker cannot refuse service to a gay couple, they lost in court...so how does this apply? Or even does it?

They were using their app to gather tons of data off peoples phones to build profiles of people that weren't even on Facebook. Even if you have never had an account there, they probably still have data about you.

If you didn't willingly give that data over to them, they have no right to have it.

There is also the whole deal about giving one political side full access to their whole repository of user data, but denying, or charging the other side.

Doing so could be considered an unreported political donation.

Their service is selling your information. Giving you a free place to be a narcissist is how they get that information.

Well honestly, if I give it to them...and every person that is on FB does...they should be able to do with it what they want. Shrug

I also think a baker should be able to tell a couple of faggots to go eat a puss when asked to make them a gay cake. Or at least have the freedom of the design of the cake (a nice pick pussy cake)

You are ignorant of what's going on.

Facebook gathers information about people who do NOT sign their EULA. People who do not sign up.

FB also gathers information about things you don't put out there. Most people who take pictures do not take into account that the objects in the background of the picture are used to market to them, gather data about them, and market to others.

Please show me in the EULA where FB has informed users that FB is going to correlate a post about a romantic breakup with beverages, clothes, locations, and other information gathered from photographs and metadata.

FB also functions as a utility, as Twitter does.

This is not a product you can opt out of.

Wrong.

Social Media is now the most important part of the political process. That is not a choice you can make by sticking your head in the sand.

You cannot opt out of being a product for Facebook or Twitter. FB and Twitter both specifically chose Democratic and Progressive causes, and suppressed conservative ones. They were both also used by foreign players to influene our election.

That is something that needs to be controlled. They are now a Utility.

how does facebook gather information about people who are not users? through photos only?

Got a friend with facebook? Ever messaged that friend on the phone that facebook was installed on? They scanned that message for keywords, and got any personal info your friend has in their phone contacts. Work, home, personal phone numbers, addresses, place of employment.

Anything your friend put in there probably got collected. They know your political leaning, what you do on the weekends, probably down to the type of beer you drink. If you have ever been photographed and posted to facebook, they have your facial recognition pattern.

A friend of mine got a facebook notice once where a coworker posted a group photo from some training. Think class picture type photo. He wasn't tagged in the photo. Facebook asked him he wanted to tag himself and the picture had a little box drawn around his face.

Their facial recognition stuff is scary.

I saw recently they had a "political leaning matrix" on there and am aware of the recognition stuff. guess that doesn't really both me much

didn't know they were scamming text messages off of phones that are linked, interesting. figured they would hassle the messenger app stuff

So you think baker's should be forced to make cakes for everyone despite their personal beliefs?

The fact that weak minded fucktards rely on FB does not change that their business is selling your information. They are free to slant that how they want to make it the most attractive to the highest bidders. I'm sorry you're too stupid and emotionally blinded to see the core facts of the situation and choose to cloud them with politics because FB is liberal and you don't like liberal.

From what I've gathered, now at least, your info never leaves Facebook. An advertiser says "Hey, we're looking for people to market ___________ product/event to preferably in ___________ location."
Facebook uses their fancy AI tools using info you have given them or have acquired through browsing habits to market that ad as relevant to you.

Lets clear this up, just because you have the app does not mean they got your contacts and text messages, it asks you if you want to allow FB to have access to contacts etc and then messenger will ask if you want to combine (?) Text and the messenger app. I declined both options, I like to keep my shit separate.

Now the issue is if you allowed/gave permission that did they clearly disclose that they were going to mine it and then sell it...

to be fair, somebody would learn way more about me through my post history on pirate than they would what I post on facebook or am tagged in/referenced

Apparently you haven't been paying attention?

1:20 in this vid:

https://www.cnbc.com/video/2018/04/1...-purposes.html

Here's some info on what's gathered:

https://gizmodo.com/how-facebook-fig...met-1819822691

HOW it's done is a trade secret. That they're doing it is not in question; they are.

I can tell you that I've done data gathering for facebook, it's done by a combinatino of what's called AI and crowdsourcing. There is no true AI but human crowdsourcing makes up the gaps for what computers can't do, that is figuring out if a soda can is coke or pepsi, etc.

But back to your simple and cozy world now, too troubling for you out here.
