One more bit of news that reveals the threat of Facebook to the privacy of its users.
It is a good addition to my latest post on the Bastion (March 25th).
A quote from an article found on Breibart news today (March 27th, 2018):
Facebook reportedly donated $200,000 to combat a data-privacy ballot initiative in California that would allow consumers to ban companies from sharing or selling their personal data.
According to a Monday report in CALmatters, weeks before Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg went on an apology tour and took out ads in U.S. and British newspapers over the Cambridge Analytica data-breach scandal, Facebook joined companies like Google, AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon to donate to a political group that is trying to block the California Consumer Privacy Act.

We should always remember that, in this world, nothing is for free. If somebody starts a social media platform, it is with the goal of making movey. If they don’t ask you to pay, they are going to get money by some other means, such as advertisement and the selling of your personal data to companies and government agencies that want them.
