Dude, you're the one who brought up politics here, so "check it at the door" anytime you want but I'll speak when I feel like speaking. Just pointing out what a hypocrite you, and the horses you ride with, are when it comes to being BLIND to the actual crimes of Obama,
while being suckers to spread the alleged
crimes of Trump.
Don't want to get called on your hypocrisy in this forum? Then don't start being a hypocrite and spreading political propoganda. Trump used facebook data in the primaries but not in the general election. however, he wasn't the one doing the harvesting. Facebook was delivering it. Now contrast that to Obama deceiving people to steal their data data through a facebook app
they themselves created.
HERE ARE THE FACTS:
In 2012, the Obama campaign encouraged supporters to download an Obama 2012 Facebook app that, when activated, let the campaign collect Facebook data both on users and their friends.
According to a July 2012 MIT Technology Review article, when you installed the app, "it said it would grab information about my friends: their birth dates, locations, and 'likes.' "
The campaign boasted that more than a million people downloaded the app, which, given an average friend-list size of 190, means that as many as 190 million had at least some of their Facebook data vacuumed up by the Obama campaign — without their knowledge or consent.
If anything, Facebook made it easy for Obama to do so. A former campaign director, Carol Davidsen, tweeted that "Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn't stop us once they realized that was what we were doing."
This Facebook treasure trove gave Obama an unprecedented ability to reach out to nonsupporters. More important, the campaign could deliver carefully targeted campaign messages disguised as messages from friends to millions of Facebook users.The campaign readily admitted that this subtle deception was key to their Facebook strategy.
