All of the nonsense outrage over what Facebook did or did not do is mere hyperbole. Facebook’s stock is still doing well on Wall Street and their member numbers have hardly fallen. Let’s face it, Facebook is here to stay. The question now is whether or not you are as well?
Are you really that surprised that Facebook may have sold your information? Or are you outraged that you didn’t think of it first?
Let’s say that Google and Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and Snapchat and all of the other social media platforms are harvesting and making profits off of your information. What are you gonna do about it? What can you do about it? Does any of this really affect you or are you just that lonely that you wanna be part of a group, the outrage group?
Let’s say that they use our information for advertising. If you’re smart, and want to hold onto your money then the advertising should have zero effect on you. Do you see where I’m going with this?
Whether you want to be on the “Kiss Cam” or not, is really not your decision. You entered the stadium of your own volition and now you are being used. Yet, the effects of this have practically zero actual affect on you if you don’t allow it. If you buy into the hysteria, then it will affect you.
Only things that bother you will affect you.
Effect only work on effects.
If you have nothing to give, then they have nothing to take. The more “baggage” you carry for other people, the easier it becomes to lose your “baggage”. That is when everything becomes all mixed up and lost.
The less you give shit, the less shit you have to lose!
