2415 Laurent_K Facebook's business model is to make money with people profile. When they proudly state that they are “committed to vigorously enforcing [their] policies to protect people’s information.”, they are in fact protecting their business model, not people's privacy.
736 shreddedkittentacos Because of family members who only communicate through Facebook, I spend time on there everyday. It's frightening how naive and susceptible to false information people can be. I often have to debunk articles posted by friends and family. Critical thinking should be a mandatory class for all children.
50 busterbluthOT Btw, Amazon laid the groundwork for this company by [allowing CA to mine data from tens of thousands of workers](https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/dec/11/senator-ted-cruz-president-campaign-facebook-user-data) through its Mechanical Turk (Mturk) platform. Their Mturk platform pretty much allows anything to happens to workers and does next to nothing to protect them from this sort of thing. While what CA did violated their TOS, they have no active measures to prevent such a thing, or remediation after the data was stolen. The workers on the site actually started their own Yelp-like review service to warn other workers of bad actors. It looks like Kogan actually posted legitimate scientific surveys for a while and then posted the task which unwittingly made workers hand over their data https://turkopticon.ucsd.edu/reports?id=A1WU9AXHP5OUSI edit: here's proof that in 2014 the task was requiring Facebook to paid (next to nothing at that) https://www.reddit.com/r/HITsWorthTurkingFor/comments/1zdcji/usshort_questionnairealeksandr_kogan506min/ edit #2: Also posted the tasks under the name "Global Science Research" https://turkopticon.ucsd.edu/reports?id=AVBK60IQKP04N The biggest parts that deserves scrutiny is that these tasks were presented as scientific research. Title was "Study on Interests and Wellbeing" which would have no way to alert the user that they were being mined for data. If Dr. Kogan's name was associated with this, I'd love to see if there was a university IRB that approved this study and where the funding came from.
