Whats Up With Facebook Sharing Data

Craig Peterson: 0:00

Hello everybody. Craig Peterson here. I have to put this out today because of everything going on regarding Facebook, in the media, you know, if you're not paying attention, you really missed something. Facebook has now been accused and apparently admitted to sharing tons of personal information about you with a number of other social media companies. And of course, we already know with political campaigns, we know that they shared tons of it, in fact, all of it with the Obama campaign way back when and some of that also went to Trump by a third party company. Now we're finding out from the New York Times that Facebook has been sharing your messages, your friends, your history, just all kinds of really rather personal information with pretty much anybody that would pay the price. So what to do about all of this a lot. Obviously, you could delete your Facebook account. It's not the easiest thing to do. We have some instructions if you're interested. Just email But you know, Facebook is still a part of all of our lives. What are we going to do? Well, I think maybe don't get too personal. In Facebook, make sure that you turn off some of these privacy settings are turning them on have we want to look at them. For instance, when you join Facebook, you remember it asked you if it could upload your contact. Well, it's been using that information to put you together with your friends, but also to associate you with what your friends think what they say and what they do online. So if you have some really weird friends, you might have a little bit of trouble make sure you visit me online. Sign up for my free master classes and my weekly email list. I'm not hounding you, and have a great day. We'll be back with a podcast this Saturday and every Saturday as well. Take care. Bye bye.
