Facebook recently announced further changes to the way it delivers news to users. According to company co-founder Mark Zuckerberg;
“I’m changing the goal I give our product teams from focusing on helping you find relevant content to helping you have more meaningful social interactions.”
More of that content would be generated through stories from “friends” and previous likes form users. There is nothing apparent in Facebook’s future plans that address their alleged lifting of user content and still blatant disregard for user privacy. Any so-called advancement of user-privacy concerns the company might talk about clearly move at a sloth’s pace. (Note: I would trust a sloth to care more about my privacy rights. They are clearly more intelligent than humans).
Facebook missing something obvious about their proposed plan. A person may like something that a friend posted. They might not like something else completely that was posted. Who’s to say that Facebook’s “complex computer algorithms” would not generate something into the user’s news feed that they would rather ignore?
Maybe 2018 will be the year Facebook sees further decline in usage. It is time for more people to Just say no to Facebook.
