Do we not stand for anything anymore?
This post is not about my own personal dislike of Facebook. It is about how spineless we have become – a slave to our own selfish whims.
There is an unethical security issue at Facebook right now. Not only that, but Facebook has heard the protests and continues to ignore the issue. From what I have read this security thing is downright illegal.
There have been numerous Facebook users who are fussing about this. They are threatening the Facebook powers that be that if they don’t fix the problem they’ll…
Start a Facebook protest group.
Which is what they have done.
If we were to protest Walmart for selling personal information about it’s customers, would we actually go into Walmart, purchase something, then hand the cashier our grievances along with a crisp $50 bill?
Of course not. That’s what we call stupid.
But Facebook users, the protesters anyway, are doing just that. They aren’t only keeping their Facebook profiles, but they are using Facebook to protest Facebook.
Really. Are they thinking this is actually going to solve the problem?
Meanwhile, Facebook powers are getting fat on the money rolling in from ads, promotional items, your personal information that you think you’ve made private(yep!), and Grande White Chocolate Mochas, all from a cushy leather couch at Starbucks.
Doesn’t that make you angry enough to just throw a sheep at somebody?
