    It's fine if you guys don't like those kind of social media. But please don't speak ill of people just because they use them.

    Hah! That's not news. After all, whoring user data is how it makes it's money.
    But neither do the so called "friends" care about you either

    Facebook invests "billions of dollars in security yearly". Suppose $1bn of that is on headcount, and each person gets $100k. That's 10,000 people employed in security. I don't think so. End of 2017, their total employee count was 25k.

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    Internally apple & the 3letters call this a feature not a bug.
