Facebook messages aren’t so private after all

From the New York Times article, “As Facebook Raised a Privacy Wall, It Carved an Opening for Tech Giants – The New York Times” –

Facebook allowed Microsoft’s Bing search engine to see the names of virtually all Facebook users’ friends without consent, the records show, and gave Netflix and Spotify the ability to read Facebook users’ private messages.

This is like the worst news I’ve heard in my life. I’m glad I gave up on Facebook an year ago, or so, and haven’t looked back. There have been times I occasionally had to reactivate to get something, but I’m trying to cut that down as well.

The news just seems to become progressively worse when it comes to Facebook. I still have my account, but I basically use it to check for family updates, and birthdays.
