For the second time today, Facebook is called a surveillance outfit! The first was by Jean-Louis Gassée.
It’s not about third parties utilizing your data to surreptitiously influence your beliefs, it’s about you coughing up your life story so Facebook itself can slice and dice this data and sell it to advertisers so you can be equally influenced. Sure, we need to question Cambridge Analytica, but even more we need to question Facebook itself, which is a glorified SURVEILLANCE OUTFIT!
I guess everyone on Twitter should be glad that company is too dysfunctional to follow Facebook’s lead. Although I’m sure they’d like to!
