Facebook: Big Brother on steroids

  • I know most here on Cathinfo don’t use Facebook and discourage others from using it. I have a page for local information gathering and selling locally here in my town as well. I don’t have any friends or family on my Facebook. I don’t share selfies or recipes or frivolous things. I really do rely on Facebook for selling items locally (no other selling avenue is available for me other than two which are both FB based. Also I follow my local mayor (he’s excellent) and a few encouraging groups for local news and info.
    There, that being said, local Liberty and Freedom groups are warning that Facebook is, as of 12/20, changing their policies to include gathering every ounce of information from our devices including facial recognition from the camera, sms messages, and google searches.
    Now for the record, I’m no techie, and I don’t have a clear idea on how much info is being gathered already, so can someone help me figure out how to work this thing so I can keep that lifeline open, but still maintain some level of privacy?
    I know everyone wishes the company Facebook would already tank, and ASAP, but it really is where a majority of local information and people are gathered to share important news and local info.  
    Any ideas from the techies?

    I hate to piss on your corn flakes but Tracebook has been doing all of that since day one. They're now admitting to it but lying saying it starts in a few days.

  • And there is Etsy and alternatives to Facebook.
    Nothing wrong with sharing recipes.

    Wow!  We are so lucky to have you educate us on the fact that you’ve known this for quite sometime, that they have been stealing all this data since day one!  Where did you find out this information?  Please list a source.  I would love to know things before everyone else.  Then maybe I could use those types of witty phrases you throw around to try to make others feel inferior.

    Hang in there, Carissima. Someone nice may shortly be able to charitably help you out with your predicament.  I am no techie, either, so I understand when one hits a wall and needs to rely on advice.

  • Anyone still on FB is an idiot. Moreover, you're feeding the Beast by remaining there. Starve the enemy, don't sustain it.

    No not an idiot for using FB for selling locally for an extra income to help family, or for getting daily updates on local city news that isn’t on television, including local crime, law enforcement and mayor’s personal page. 
    If that’s where everyone is already there’s no changing it. I’m not standing in a corner by myself waiting for everyone to decide to join something else.
