Once again, the Facebook team has shown their true colors by betraying the trust of millions of users, and offering up access to their most personal and private information for profit. The Silicon Valley leader has been caught violating their own data sharing policies, for the benefit of some of their most prestigious clients. Companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Sony and Netflix have been enjoying the special privilege of being able to read, write and even delete Facebook users’ private messages. Isn’t that something?

The tech industry has been involved in countless scandals as of late; whether its conspiring to throw elections, censoring conservative content or violating user privacy, Big Tech is at the helm of controversy. It is no wonder then, that massive amounts of people are leaving Facebook and other social media platforms.

Facebook sells out users and their data

A shocking investigation led by The New York Times has revealed that Facebook has been giving at least 150 of the world’s largest companies unbridled access to its users’ personal information. As the report reveals, these companies have been privy to a far more intrusive level of personal data than Facebook has ever been willing to admit.

Info Wars reports:

The Times interviewed over 60 people including current and former employees of Facebook and its partners, former government officials and privacy advocates – and reviewed over 270 pages of Facebook’s internal documents while performing technical tests and analysis to monitor what data Facebook has been handing out like candy.

The Times investigation uncovered an internal Facebook document, in which the company emphasized that “personal data is the most prized commodity of the digital age,” and it is being traded by some of the most powerful companies in the world.

In what is possibly the largest Facebook scandal to date, the personal information of over 400 million users was given away to hundreds of the world’s most influential companies, including Microsoft, Google and other partners, for free. Facebook traded information on its users, and violated their perceived and expected levels of privacy, to support industry relations and to advance the company’s own agenda.

Supposedly, this exchange was intended to benefit everyone — except perhaps Facebook users, who are nothing more than guinea pigs in the social media mind control experiment.
