The way I see it. Someone is gunning for Facebook. Again….I have no issue here. I find it funny. But so many articles are coming after Facebook for invasion of privacy when every single one of those major companies, every carrier, every giant corporation and the government all want the exact same information. All for their own nefarious reasons, based around control and money; because (news flash) that’s the way this world seems to be.
I find it hysterical except when it starts to piss me off.
Last night I realized that my phone would turn off the screen if it did not see my face. The camera was activated in the background. So I disabled every app from accessing my audio, location, camera, contacts, etc. Every app that absolutely did not need that information I disabled, including Google play, which is one way Google accesses, gathers and distributes information as well.
So now every 10 minutes the phone reminds me I disabled Google Play from having access to my settings….as if I did it by accident. My phone still functions exactly as I need it to and should I need I can go back and reverse this case by case. I’m actually surprised I was even given that much authority over my own personal information, pictures and data. I’m surprised they don’t have the power to just take it.
Sneaky ass bastards. If the Amish weren’t so hell bent on stupid ass misogynistic rules and intolerance of gays and other such idiocies I’d say they have it right. Maybe living in a cave like the fabled Buddhist monk (did?) isn’t the worst thing. I swear!!!!
Sometimes I get mad. What can I say?
