About 10 years ago, I was on Facebook, for about a month. First I was getting creeped out by some of the weirdos wanting to’ friend’ me, who became offensive when I refused.
It was around this time that I considered one of my own maxims; “When you find a terrific free app, chances are you are not the customer, but the product”. I thought about that for a bit, and also looked at the kinds of things people posted on Facebook; then it dawned on me; Facebook is a sophisticated data mining device. I decided it was not sufficiently trustworthy to have any information about me .
Much later, I not only found out I was right, but that Mark Zuckerberg seems to be an odious little toe rag, with the moral values of a newt.
I’ve started this thread because it has occurred to me that my opinion may simply be that of an out-of-touch baby boomer. Be very interested in the views of some younger members.
