He did it - Er =  Dries - hat es getan. Danke.

Er hat sein Konto bei facebook gekündigt - was ich schon vor rund einem Jahr getan habe. 

Leute, ihr werdet nicht nur zugespamt ihr werdet betrogen und ausgenutzt. Aus Geldgier? Aus Geltungssucht?

Wie auch immer, das muß gestoppt werden, kein Facebook, kein Instagram, und bestimmt kein WhatsApp. Die sammeln alle Daten, die wissen alles über Dich und nutzen es aus, um massiv Werbung zu verschicken, gezielt auf Eure Interessen. Aber nicht nur das, inzwischen geht es schon um Straftaten, wenn Kindern und Eltern Geld aus der Tasche gezogen wird. 

Dries: Pulling the plug on Facebook

Dries schreibt: Zitat

Exactly one year ago, I decided to use social media less and blog more. I uninstalled the Facebook application from my phone, but kept my Facebook account for the time being.

The result is that I went from checking Facebook several times a day to once or twice a month.

At the time I uninstalled the Facebook application from my phone, Mark Zuckerberg promised that he would fix Facebook. He didn't.

The remainder of 2018 was filled with Facebook scandals, including continued mishandling of personal data and privacy breaches, more misinformation, and a multitude of shady business practices.

Things got worse, not better.

The icing on the cake is that a few weeks ago we learned that Facebookknowingly duped children and their parents out of money, in some cases hundreds or even thousands of dollars, and often refused to give the money back.

And just last week, it was reported that Facebook had been collecting users' data by getting people to install a mobile application that gave Facebook root access to their network traffic.

It's clear that Facebook can't be trusted. And for that reason, I'm out. I deleted my Facebook account.
