    Saw all of this coming when myspace first started. Honestly if you have facebook you shouldnt even have rights. It shows that this person cares about their own ego more than anything else in their life.

    China is slightly ahead of U.S. in A.I. because their companies don't have issues with privacy lol. To keep U.S. companies competitive, we may need to relax restrictions on companies using user data. instead, we should regulate the data usage to maintain privacy. For example, require security clearance for engineers with access to private data, and companies need to certify their security that private data won't leak out.

    Everyone reading this should boycott Red Lobster. They've pulled advertising from Tucker's show after pressure from left wing activists, citing that he doesn't conform to their values. What's interesting is that Red Lobster makes many of their dishes using sea-food (mostly shrimp) from Thailand which uses slave labor from human trafficking. That means that Red lobster doesn't "conform to my values" either.

    does it matter? people willing give anything to them. I worked for a company that employees submitted their smiling face for a prize.. then they used those faces for a new PowerPoint ad campaign. you can't sue them because it's their property now and anything you create on company property.

    Amazon still owes me money for a purchase I made in December 2017 a monthly payment for things I don't buy or need or ever use. It took me so long to figure out what happened and how they got it. Directly took money from my personal bank account.

    I will never forget the day Facebook turned off my account, they demanded a copy of my drivers license, so what I did to see if it will work, I made a paper copy with my scanner and printed out onto part that copy, and made another copy, I cut out the numbers of the second copy and changed them around and taped them back onto the 1st copy. I submitted the altered fake copy and to my surprise, they accepted it, and also remember, just because you may not have FB does not mean they do not have your info, if a person, your kids take a photo of you and post it onto FB, and they tag it, well, there you go, they got it. and on ALL photos made with smart phones, they have whats called a geo tag, a GPS set of numbers, you can look at any photo and pull up the photo properties menu and find out the day and location the photo was made. the smart phone does this automatically and is out of your control
