    My confession here. When I was working for a bigger company I was using our tools to look up user profiles. On one hand it was a part of the job, because we were restoring their accounts that were linked to Facebook profiles, block fake accounts, send warnings etc. But I admit that sometimes I went further than needed, for instance going through the profile of user that we were having problems with and had a long conversation. I was looking at the profile thinking "Here he is in his 40s, has a wife, kids, decent car, probably makes a lot because donation history is extensive. And this adult man is sending nasty insults to other people on the Internet, using his real profile, to people he never met before, because he didn't like what they did in that stupid application."
    It is was wrong and absolutely unnecessary to resolve the issue, but I still did that. It is weird but I often felt the temptation to do it. Glad I don't work there anymore. And think now what Facebook employees can do with the information they have.

  12. MyTech says:

    My issue with ads and marketers is that they choose to spread heaps of BS and waste money pushing garbage and insulting my intellect rather than simply informing me of a genuine new [quality] product.

  17. Nauggers says:

    Tinder uses Facebook data which I foolishly used in the past. I hope that they still don't have my data but thinking even a little bit about where your data is being stored can be a scary one.

    Billions of years shaped sperm into the optimal shape for traveling through uterus to meet the egg. It makes sense to mimic some of its features for minimizing air resistance in flight.
