Facebook has just added one more feat to its long history of appallingly unethical actions.
It began with the mood manipulation experiments for which the affected users had given no consent.
I thought that this would have major consequences for Facebook.
I was wrong. People just shrugged. They made fusses over Starbucks instead.
So Facebook took it further and further. It meddled in the US elections. It meddled in the UK’s Brexit referendum (the Cambridge Analytica scandal). Its boss gave governments the finger by not showing up for hearings. It paid kids to give it access to their entire digital lives.
And now this. Can you still justify using Facebook (and Instagram, and WhatsApp)?
