Why is everyone freaked out about this? Come on it’s not like you’ve your credit card or bank account or social security numbers stolen! Are people freaked out about the stealing of the idle chit chat you did with friends/family over cat pics? So they used some of this stupid data to probably target you for ads. So what! I bet only the techies are making all the noise here. Facebook is now used only by the older folks and half of them probably neither understand nor give a shit about this data sharing.
Please get some perspective guys and stop the unnecessary brouhaha around this. Silicon Valley is getting bored it looks like and needs some spice and Facebook fulfilled the much needed requirements for the valley.
(I’m not a fb employee)
Google sells what I might want.
Facebook sells who I am.
The issue I have is with that difference.
