Facebook is STILL NOT your friend

Posted at — Apr 24, 2016

My wife and most of our family loves Facebook. I imagine your does too. But imagine my surprise when I clicked on the post on her timeline only to discover that the website required me to login with my Facebook credentials. Like most application developers at Facebook the mission is to capture eyeballs and sell clicks.In this case my wife has given this company access to all of her pictures which they will use by posting to her timeline and we have no idea whether or not they are going to honor the security settings like GPS etc.Frankly if you are going to set your security so that you have to approve all pictures that you’re tagged in then make sure you know exactly what you are giving up when you think you’re getting something for free.FACEBOOK IS NOT FREE
