We've been warning these sheeple about social media since myspace. Fuck'em.

I still think everybody should delete their accounts from all such nonsense but I'm not sympathetic now just because they let their info get used by the "wrong side." They were all applauding this exact same shit when their data got used by O'bomber.

Zero fucking sympathy here.

They don't need sympathy, but "fuck em" is not a good idea for you, "us", or "them". They betray your info by revealing everything else. You're the rest. There is no hiding. At least not without some new tech, and a huge shift in attitude about intel hygiene.

Speak the truth. The world desperately needs heroes right now. You know better, and standing by and watching them won't save you from the fallout.

Warning them about it didn't save me either. I've never had an account on any of those kind of sites. I'm well aware how the use of them by others exposes me. I warned them before and they didn't listen. Warning them now that they've finally listened will make no difference. All I have left to give is a hearty "I told you so."

This is truth, once there is an interest in the data it will be used. The average user of computers has historically been very ignorant about security. When asked why they prefer Apple computers or devices, many people will state that they don't get viruses and don't get hacked, or are harder to hack. The media has never talked about safe computing practices like they do other things, like smoking or the flu that I can recall. There has never been a cycber or computing security campaign like there is for smoking or human trafficking that I can recall. People are so ignorant that they dont seem to have a rational reaction to the inexcusable breaches that corporations such as equifax has. How would the average person react to someone entering their home and making copies/going through their financial documents? how would someone feel if you told them to hand out copies of their family photo albums to random people in front of walmart? The truth is, one would have more privacy posting their pic on a billboard along a freeway than putting it online. The average person uses it as entertainment. Social media is entertainment IMO, average people simply do not take it seriously yet, chasing likes and subscribers. and acting surprised that there is no privacy? We only have 2 or is it 3 generations raised "online"? its new tech and largely unregulated. And of course, dancing pigs.

I think it's cute that you somehow think you 8mmune because you avoid a few select website's and social media accounts. You are not. I was a prospect researcher. I got paid to find info on people using nothing but an address. Social media was always my last stop. It just confirmed for me everything I found.

I think its gotta be media manufactured. There is so much info on everyone available on line through public records ect, what people WILLINGLY post on themselves is just icing.
