Get your loved ones off Facebook -- Salim Virani

Salim Virani has been checking Facebook upcoming privacy policy due to change on Jan. 30th, 20151. Unless you leave Facebook before this date, you won't have to accept the new ToS since you agree by staying2.

Abstract: Facebook doesnt keep any of your data safe or anonymous, no matter how much you lock down your privacy settings. There are very serious privacy breaches, like selling your product endorsement to advertisers and politicians, tracking everything you read on the internet, or using data from your friends to learn private things about you:

Dont confuse privacy with secrecy

I know what you do in the bathroom, but you still close the door. Thats because you want privacy, not secrecy.
-- Fábio Esteves in I have nothing to hide. Why should I care about my privacy?

Get your loved ones off Facebook...!

  1. Edit: Salim Virani originally wrote this 2015, to explain why the latest Facebook privacy policy is really harmful. Its since been read by over a million people, and Salim updated it earlier this year. ↩︎

  2. 2017 update: A lot of these concerns Salim had have proven true. Facebook has been consistent with its pattern of contempt for its users. Salim hase updated this with a few more points and links. ↩︎
