At Facebook, it’s critically important to remember that you are not the customer, you’re the product. None of Facebook’s users pay a dime for its service and yet Facebook makes tens of billions of dollars a year. Facebook makes money off of you and your data. And as we’ve seen in the last two weeks, that business model is ripe for abuse. It’s long since time that we, as consumers, reject the current Internet business model: the collection and sale of phenomenal amounts of highly personal data.
In today’s episode, I’ll discuss the Cambridge Analytica scandal and why a Facebook VP believes that growth is good at any cost. I’ll spell out all the reasons why I’m deleting my Facebook account – and why you should strongly consider doing the same. At the very least, you should see what information Facebook has on you, so you can make an informed decision – I’ll tell you how to do that, too.
