I’m one of the last people, to argue about privacy online. I have set all of my settings on Facebook to public and have no qualm about it. I even have a website dedicated to give you access to all of my social media accounts in, www.ColeWatts.com.
Privacy is not an issue with me, so when I read that Facebook was in the midst of launching a whole slew of new buttons, I was intrigued by how Facebook was making it easier for us to give them our information.
Now, with a simple click of a button one can tell all their friends what they like, read, listen, and watch on Facebook. With these new buttons, Facebook is officially becoming the sole owner of our information online. Not only will you be telling your friends what you’re doing at any given time, but you will also be telling Facebook this.
By making our lives easier, Facebook is getting more and more information from us. Have you seen the new lists feature yet? By easily creating lists for us, based on location, schools, and past job experience Facebook is grouping us together and thus creating more information about us.
I have no problem with Facebook getting even more of my information, but it’s starting to reach a level that even, I’m beginning to question it. What about you? Are you worried about any of these new changes?
