Facebook: a idea that while innocent in its conception became a way for corporations and governments to test and implement a database of peoples identities without violating the Constitution.
This *face* data merged with fingerprint authentication, a ridiculously unique authentication method for access to things like phone numbers that were previously available in a phone book, or trivial games, gives corps and government reasonable certainty of who you are, what your index print is, what you do, what you buy and where you go.
Source?: Facebook terms of service allows use of your data. Facebook hooks come pre-installed in IOS and Andriod.
Prove me wrong.
The government cant access your info without due process (on the record), however any information in plain view through agreements with corporations and law enforcement is constitutional since the information is in the public view.
Fact is a criminal with a sealed arrest record has more privacy than a law abiding selfie taking citizen.
the purpose of any break through or technological achievement in a 1st world society is for a government to use it against its enemies AND its own citizens. this is not limited to tech alone, this also covers the biological, medical, political, economical, psychological scope etc. theyre all tools of dominance. why do you think higher education is so stressed in america and other 1st world nations?
in short remember this: anything developed by a society will be used against you. so yes, youre right.
A credit score is the measure of how good you are in paying your bills on time. Buying a house, getting a credit card or financing the latest selfie phone, is all enabled by your credit score.
This is old news from 2011 but the FTC actually green lighted a company to run a social media check on publicly available data.
"You want a job with our company, we have to run a Social Media Credit Check on you. Sign this waiver".
Full disclosure: I don't have a facebook account and I disabled fingerprint authentication on my laptop. If laptop is ever stolen by a criminal I doubt they can break the encryption, and even if they do the best they have on me is that I'm pro Trump, childless, single and fap to anime. Also I use GNU/Linux.
Sort of off topic but I remember when the fingerprint technology was introduced to the iPhone. I was so against it I swore off Apple's phones altogether. Now I'm planning to buy a 6+.
It's just interesting how quickly we don't give a shit about privacy. I'm sure I represent more people in that if I can't directly prove they're using my info nefariously then I don't care.
Like to express your opinions on muslims, blacks, white, mexican, or anyone else? Like to participate in a heated debate over abortion or gun control?
Becarefull. Your Facebook posts, your 4chan posts, and your tweets can sink your hopes of that new job.
How about when you are in the background of a picture taken by someone who posts on the Facebook. What if you are puking in the back of a bar, or doing a lewd act? Lawsuit time since the commercial use of photos of people are governed by old laws written when privacy and modesty mattered. (unless they change the laws).
I hope this gets big enough to backfire. As in all your searches and posts are considered for jobs to the point where people say "fuck it" and stop working for corporations altogether. Then these businesses fail.
It's my dream.
Smartphones are usefull as phones and mobile computing, but I don't put anything important on there. Apple phones are nice because they encrypt the data (if you choose to). You can skip fingerprint authentication too. Andriod phones are a joke IMHO because 1: the hardware manufacture never updates the software. 2: encryption only works if you really work at it.
Full discloser: I have a 7 year old smartphone, running 6 year old OS (ice cream).
So, I ask you /x. Is face book now part of a conspiracy to strip privacy from individuals not for commercial targeted ads, but for something more nefarious? Why does every smartphone have a forward and a backfacing camera? Why are removable smartphone batteries becoming a thing of the past? Why are there cameras on everyblock, even in rural areas?
embedded software pre-installed that links to facebook. This is before you install facebook app.
Proof: 1: go airplane mode.
3. capture wifi traffic.
4.See communiation to facbook owned servers from your phone without facebook app installed.
(info is apparently encrypted)
But this is because FB has a direct login caked into the phone for convenience sake and notifications. Not saying they are shitbags but there's a clear and obvious reason for it.
