That’s a very smart campaign. And because FB censured them (which they probably anticipated), there will likely be even more talk about it. Kudos.
Alas, talk is cheap.
Everybody is at their leisure to walk away from FB and Instagram (and all the those other nasty players) right now. Close the account. This very moment. Real action, not talk.
All this baloney would be over tomorrow if people just voted with their feet. So nobody tell me they’re on FB or whatever because of < insert excuse here > today, but then complain about surveillance tomorrow. It’s you who has to change this. And since we’ve seen across the globe the extent to which regulation and litigation have reigned in Zuck, we all know damned well by now that it’s walking away that will ultimately be required in order to really make a change.
Yep, after millions of oh-so-witty yet always insightful opinions tweeted, tens of thousands of lines of debate, and all the other blathering, fun’s over. It’s finally time to walk the walk. But you have to do the walking. Might as well get started now.
