I have to admit, that I feel frustrated with this whole Facebook issue and how far it has escalated. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not siding with anyone on this, BUT seeing posts in Facebook by the users and those complaining about “how dare Facebook”, has hit a sore spot with me.
Some of you may have read a previous blog I wrote about us having to take some responsibility too and I really can’t stress this enough. Read BLOG HERE
If you are angry with what has happened, then REMOVE your Facebook account and stop complaining.
- Did you know that everything you do on the Internet is tracked?
- Have you read the policies and procedures of every single social site you have joined?
- Have you checked the settings as to what you are releasing everytime you download an App?
Check these policies out:
These are just a few examples of sites that most people use and the reality is that very few actually read the Policies.
We gave up our rights to complete privacy and the information that we willing share, the minute we started using the Internet.
Everything you type, every message you send, every game you play, is all tracked.
You have hidden settings on your phone, have you gone through them to see what information you are releasing?
What do you think is happening with every single email you are sending?
Do you believe that the Government isn’t tracking absolutely everything you are doing on the internet?
Your Internet Service Provider, do you not realize they are tracking everything you are doing?
I agree, we shouldn’t have to give up our rights however, the reality is that we don’t have that choice IF we want to continue using the Internet.
IF we want to continue using FREE sites/Apps, then we have to accept the risk, otherwise don’t use it.
This is my only personal thoughts and I acknowledge that I am giving up my rights with everything I choose to do on the Internet and within Apps. However, I will continue to check settings, policies, so I am aware of the risk I am taking.
