@grimneko Another kick in the teeth for privacy then.
@zleap indeed it is, and still it won't hurt them in the end. 😦
@grimneko There was talk about breaking up Facebook, but that is the usual all talk and no action.
I mentioned that I found the initial link on Mastodon, too.
@zleap I mean to remember that one condition to merge WhatsApp into Facebook was that the database stays seperate. Either I remember wrong or they just try if they get away with this.
There is a pandemic, they are probably hoping that it will sneak in and no one will notice.
I hope they do this, as if they break the condition (which sounds familiar to me too) they get fined, maybe a few Billion dollars for a start,
@zleap thank you.
No problem, the fact facebook got sued by so many states over privacy seems like Facebook now think they are just above the law. A very dangerous way of thinking.
This however is great for the fediverse as it helps strengthen our argument for decentralised and privacy respecting social media .
@zleap I couldn't agree more !
