Let's think about it for one second, they know what books, movies, stores, authors and things you like. They also know where you go and where you check yourself in. Who your friends are and what businesses is on your friends list.

By knowing all this, if I was FB, I would sell your information such as the ones mentioned above with your email address as well, to companies. They blast you with spam and perhaps phone calls or text to you.

You like Harry Potter? No problem, they will contact you. What restaurants you like, no problem, I have sold your likes to restaurant.com and they turnaround and make contact that restaurant, that customers exist. They text you with coupons.

You like basketball? Great!...ISH is going to get that list of clients and off they go to get you to join. Things of that nature.

Google gets better info on people than FB. At least on FB, you have some control over the information they get from you. Google observes basically everything you do on the internet.

FB is used just as much as Google and here's the big kicker....FB is a social networking site. Therefore, FB knows what's going on in your life or what you are doing. Google probably knows to the extent of searching for porn.

Also, I hate how Yahoo Mail and G Mail are asking for phone number verifications.

Last time I signed up for a site, I started getting mass text messages.

Instagram withdraws policy change, won't put users' photos in ads

Well that was quick.

Most people never read the terms and agreement when they sign up for these websites. Guess you can't be too angry when something like this happens.

Damn, one of the founders (Krieger) lived in my dorm my freshman year (he was a sophomore)...he was a pretty chill guy, but a bit out there. Was this a Facebook decision, or one made by Instagram (I'm assuming the former, without having read the article)?

Doesn't really matter to me, it's not like anyone is willing to buy or sell a photo of me which most of the ones I upload are of. If so then, cool, I'll be a IG prostitute without receiving the pay.

Yeah, I have skipped those aspects of signing up. I do not post my phone number, address, or legitimate e-mail address on those sites. The email I used on Facebook is one I had in college that I have not checked in years.

whats the big deal?

most people with an instagram need to calm down because no one is gonna pay for your stupid pictures.


and people getting pissed at facebook selling their pictures and information need to calm down.

i've never gotten call from telemarketers, i rarely get emails from spam places and even if i do it doesnt really effect me.

and depending on what facebook knows about me i get a couple correlating advertisements on my facebook homepage... who cares?


facebook owning my stuff will never effect me to the point of getting angry at it.


people just love to hate facebook i guess.
