Should We Still Trust Facebook?

Facebook has been in the news a lot lately. Today it was that they are tracking and collecting data of android users. Is it time to dump your Facebook account?

Facebook has been in the news a lot in 2018, and it hasn’t been good. First, the company was under fire for allowing Russian operatives to purchase Facebook ads to influence the 2016 U.S Presidential election. Then it emerged that Cambridge Analytica, a political data firm, gained access to private information on more than 50 million Facebook users. Yes, the problems were bad. But worse, Facebook hasn’t been completely open and honest and transparent as these stories were breaking. I no longer trust Facebook.

There’s a growing #DeleteFacebook movement as well as congressional scrutiny.
Can We No Longer Trust Facebook?

Recently we got news from Mark Zuckerberg that he and his team is working on it. In my view, I will trust the facebook which is playing the main role in social media and which is the better platform to market and also for many other things.

I trust them just as much as I did before.
I also downloaded my backup, nothing unexpected in it.

So long as you are willing to trade all your personal information for a bit of online frivolity you should trust and use them. It is pretty much as it has always been.

You won't find me there, never have and never will.

In case you missed it, Facebook’s founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has been in front of the US Senate Commerce and Judiciary Committees and US House Energy and Commerce Committee this week:
Quote:
..the Eye of Sauron has now been fixed upon Facebook, Google and other platforms that traffic in user data. We can expect that they will now face the kind of scrutiny that has previously been reserved for large global companies such as Microsoft, AT&T and others. Though a more apt comparison may be the scrutiny and subsequent fines and regulation faced by the tobacco industry, which came under fire for the ways it sought to hide its products’ known deleterious effects and the companies’ efforts to increase their addictive properties and market them to an ever younger population, disregarding the interests of consumers. The Silicon Valley hoodie-and-Whole-Foods “disruptors” have now officially joined the big leagues and must come to grips with the great responsibility that comes along with their great power.

How Facebook responds to this crisis, and, more importantly, how users respond, could have a serious impact on the viability of Facebook as a dominant marketing channel. Restrictions around data policy, data access, targeting capabilities and more will have significant downstream implications for marketers maximizing those very powerful tools that Facebook currently provides...

Cambridge Analytica Announces Closure

Fallout from the data scandal:
Quote:
Cambridge Analytica, the controversial firm embroiled in the mishandling of Facebook user data, has announced its shut down on Wednesday. Its British parent SCL Elections Ltd. will also be shuttered as the data analytics company reported a significant decline in business.

In a press release, Cambridge Analytica blamed negative media coverage for the data scandal. It lost suppliers and clients while facing mounting legal fees, prompting the company to file for insolvency in the UK and begin bankruptcy proceedings in the US....

It's like the old saying, if the product is free, then you are the product.
