    They should not complain if users lose confidence in their company, after the W10 and its telemetric orgy, now the little secret privilege with Facebook.

    Aware users already lost confidence and way before win10, problem is Windows is unavoidable by becoming the standard, i credit them for managing to be a monopole.

    I don't play games on Facebook. But reading some comments on other website some believe the whitelist was done to allow flash games.

    "Facebook stopped using flash years ago.

    It's only there for third party developers publishing flash games via the facebook platform.

    I think it's probably fair enough to whitelist those — it's a walled garden similar to Steam and running a flash game is safer than the exe games on Steam."

    Is this accurate?
