    Yep. The last straw was placed on the pile.
    They won't be making any more money on the very, very little information they had been able to mine about me.
    Which means they probably didn't make much, if any money by selling my info.
    Oh! No. Not TPF!

    Zuckerberg - et al, Facebook.
    I told 'em today to delete, not disable, my account.

    There more info about me here on tpf than on Facebook. This latest is a distraction from the real news about what that info was used for and by whom.

    I use FB to see what my friends etc are up to.
    I block all the news & game popups by using the option to Hide Ads, etc.
    I also NEVER use FB to log in to any other website/app. NEVER
    I also NEVER use any apps/games through FB
    All posts are NOT Public searchable, only friends of friends. etc etc.

    So my FB is clean.

    I also put as little personal information on that as possible.
    I'm also very little swayed by Advertisement.
    Having been in advertising I notice the little tricks of the trade .. "someone blah blah blah, look at what they did". Gawd, how corny of a method but it gets ppl all the time.

    Plus many news places are tilted heavy one way or another.

    I do have to say, they reset the security last month. So I had to get back to blocking ads and junk again.

    People just have to get back to the basics of what it is ... that would tame it a lot more. But truthfully people are so gullible to advertisements, etc.

    FB doesn't get much, actually they get nothing from me. Really. I do own their stock, as I know they know how to make money off of people. FB is up $1.24/share today so far and rebounding.
