After reading Ray’s article on how to permanently remove my Facebook account, I met another article that seemed to give me even more reasons to do so. There is a lot on the web that is scary, and enough to cause paranoia, without having to face the same from a “socially friendly” site.
A document released in 2017 (paywall) reveals Facebook Australia’s intention to exploit the words and images of teenagers. This should give us all the pause to re-evaluate exactly the amount of information we wish to display here. We also wonder if there is a limit to the dangers of Facebook abuse.
Facebook’s ability to predict and exploit users’ personal data for profit is not new, but the latest information is surprising. Facebook is now abusing its media by awakening the feelings of teenagers may be distraught. With over four million advertisers, it’s not great to see how the social networking giant might want to further displease this advantage, and thus exploit its users in this way.
It’s no secret that Facebook sells data from its users to advertisers (anything from your images on your mobile phone numbers) into billions in the process. The company has clearly indicated that it will bleed navigation data, regardless of its personal depth, directly to its advertisers. This, according to Facebook, is because it wants to improve the user experience of advertising.
Thus, it is not surprising that the emotional states of users are not out of bounds for the media, as well as the consideration of the ethnic belonging of the users. The latter has many implications for unjust discrimination in the search for housing and the acquisition of financial goals.
This is just another sad and sad reminder that, as a Facebook user, you are not his customer. You are his raw material, mine and manipulation. And to earn money – usually by selling seemingly seized advertising to your tastes and desires. But the potential damage that this latest fund-raising can cause is a bit too – even according to Facebook’s standards. Some of the emotions of teens who unfold revolve around their obsession with appearance – things such as weight loss, body building and others. This highlights the ravishing appetite of Facebook for advertising revenue and could result in deterioration of the body and intimidation of the unsuspecting user.
Some warnings about this article based on information from Australia … Although the publication raises questions about whether these advertising practices targeted by young people are identical or similar to those of others Facebook’s Facebook offices, Facebook says they are not.
In addition, this “talk” is limited to fewer than seven million young people in Australia and New Zealand. And while Facebook disputes the reports, a Facebook Australia representative nevertheless made a formal and long apology by saying,
“We opened an investigation to understand the failure of the process and improve our control. We will undertake disciplinary and other processes, if necessary. “
However, for many, the genius is already out of the bottle, and the message for the future direction of this sordid saga is clear. There is no obvious withdrawal from the incessant and avaricious trends of the technological titan. Facebook president Mark Zuckerberg preaches almost ad nauseam to unite the world via social networks. Perhaps what his company actually does cause unwary users to kneel down in the endless quest to earn more money.
