  • Probably on Santa's naughty list also! LOL!! Anyone that interacts at all with the world is no doubt on several lists. Most people may not realize it, tho I suspect many could figure it out if they just thought about it, but you just can't reasonably expect any decent level of privacy anymore. I don't like it. Don't see much (that I'm willing) to do about it. The way I look at it, if people don't like what they find out about me, they are free to track me down and try to make me change. And if the NSA doesn't like this post, they need to pay attention next time I'm on the phone cuz I have a few choice words for them!

  • Sounds like Zuckerberg is not wanting to make tough decisions. He was just along for the ride (and money)n but make ethical decisions?

    It is a decision I have battled in a minuscule way here on this blog and have had push-back from this small audience so can you imagine what he will get?

    I don't use FB for controversy or politicking so it is doubtful I will be affected but this "cat" has been out of the bag so long, it is going to have immense affect on the platform.

    Zuckerberg just wanted to have fun and make money, but it is now time to earn that money and function in an ethical, moral way. Might be a tough thing for him.

  • Connecting the dots on the internet has gone much too far. During the winter I viewed (and only viewed) a sponsored FB ad offering something that interested me for 50% off. I then closed the ad and continued scrolling my page. Within 10 minutes I got a call from the company that had run the ad trying to get me to purchase the article. Very, very scary…...

  • Wow, that is indeed an intrusive! I can’t understand how they think that is not only scare you but make you mad. Neither would get them their sale.

  • It indeed made me very angry and I did not and would not ever purchase the item no matter how much I wanted it after a tactic like that. Most of the time what one does with their money is the best way to make a point.
