On January 30th, all Facebook users will be asked whether or not they will accept the new “Terms of Service” policy. According to reports, they want to allow third parties such as CIA, NSA, FBI, and others to access all of your information. This may not just be the information stored on your Facebook account, the also could include private information on your phone and computer. Many Facebook users have vowed to delete their Facebook accounts before the new year starts.
Now when you really think about this, you must realize that the World Wide Web was created with a backdoor and once your information has been displayed onto the internet, it stays there forever. So whether you are using Facebook or any other social media account, your information is out there no matter what. Nothing is 100% private on the internet. Also understand that the CIA, DHS, FBI, and NSA will have access to your information at all times. This new “Terms of Service” policy essentially just makes it a little bit easier for them and not only that but it makes it legal considering you are signing a contract through Facebook. If you accept the new policy, just be aware that you have made it legal for them collect your information and basically spy on you while avoiding a lawsuit etc.
While this is alarming, before you accept the new policy on January 30th, make sure you read the entire “Terms of Service” and decide for yourself if you want to remain a user of Facebook. Below is a video explaining the situation some more.
