      Indeed, why would WSJ try to screw FB constantly? Like if people really read FB newsfeed more often then the good old media.

      Not just WSJ, it's most of media. FB has democratized media so that they aren't the gatekeepers of news anymore, anyone with a smartphone can share news and be a reporter and build their brand. The media groups can't stand this, therefore they scare you with the threat of, oh "FAKE NEWS on Facebook!!" Open your eyes, idiots. Don't be manipulated by the opinions manufactured by the mainstream media.

      That’s a pretty well researched article and I’m
      pretty fucking sure fb is doing every bit of what’s being claimed there. Anyone defending Facebook on any privacy related issue is a grade A idiot.

      I don’t really need to elaborate on Facebook’s track record for us to trust anything fb does at face value. Just assume they’re trying to fuck you over using every creepy data sucking maneuver possible. When news inevitably comes out, Zuck is going to do a honest to god we’re changing and then .. nothing. Business as usual.

    Did you even read the article OP? Of course you didn’t. Apps are sending data to fb against fb’s terms and services because the app makers didn’t configure their api integrations correctly. Now the app makers are scrambling to course correct

      > Facebook said some of the data sharing uncovered by the Journal’s testing appeared to violate its business terms, which instruct app developers not to send it “health, financial information or other categories of sensitive information.”

      Sure once it blows up you just blame it on apps. This playbook has been used atleast for 10 different issues in the past. The real question is why Facebook is even letting apps send data on users that are not even logged into Facebook, when it’s clear that the app itself does nothing that requires Facebook integration with no way to opt out, view or delete this data aggregated from sources outside a users control.

      You really wanna play that card with the play store?

      Ok what about the play store? Apps use ads to monetize?

      How do you feel about apps that are approved on play store but then turn out to be fraudulent or straight viruses? Did they not agree to your T&C?

      That’s not the same though, short of a manual approval process like Apple’s, there’s not much you can do there. People have the freedom to download / not download the scammy looking apps and a majority of people do a pretty good job at avoiding the shady ones. I think google also actively tried to get rid of these apps using algorithms but obviously they can’t get everything.

      In facebooks case I don’t even get a say in how my data is being collected. I could download an app that makes fart noises and it will have some stupid fb integration that I dont even know about /expect unless I get a traffic interceptor and look at outgoing traffic.

    Is that facebook’s fault or the apps who share the data’s fault?

    These apps are either dumb for not knowing what these API’s do or giving that data to fb for free.
    If they’re selling the data without the user’s knowledge or consent then they should be sued.

      They're not dumb, that's the business model. Because idiot users don't want to pay Jack shit for services. Everyone wants free stuff. Of course what else do you expect. The real surprise is why people seem upset by this lol. Did you really expect to get free things all your life?

    I think companies who pay scientists to convince people that their poisonous products have no adverse effects, or car companies hiding defects for years willing to let people die are a teensy beensy bit more evil than Facebook
