Former MI5 bloke said a while back that FB was the best thing that ever happened for them :D

I just can't understand how there is no talk in the media about how Obama did exactly the same thing in 2012 and presumably afterwards for 2016 with Hillary.

And it gets worse. Facebook is frickin' awful. I wouldn't use it if I didn't have a business, I'd keep in touch with rellies and friends other ways. Unfortunately government departments and some big businesses act like its use is compulsory ... http://www.news.com.au/technology/onlin ... 8ce1593642

Zuckbook!

I deleted my account the day after the cyclone. I was getting so frustrated by the general number of stupid people in the world asking stupid questions. The szuck thing just the last nail in the coffin.

It used to be very good for my business but not a anyone

I just reread the story and it is horrific, they are basically a spy company, not only using the data for advertisers but possibly on-selling the data to anyone who is willing to pay. I'd delete my account tomorrow if I didn't have a business to run.
