Facebook Data Sharing Clarified
But Facebook did clarify exactly how user data is shared. And this helps people understand how they can control the spread of their posts. If a post is limited to a group like Family or Friends, Facebook says it won’t share the add outside of that group. So posting about the great meal you just had at a restaurant isn’t likely to reach outside your comfort zone. But your liking a restaurant’s Facebook page can become a very public action. Facebook and Zuckerberg have continually faced privacy problems since the platform’s launch. And it probably started when the Facebook founder called his users dumb for trusting him with their data.
Many people are still complaining about how exposed they feel. They are looking at Facebook’s stance on openness and wondering if there really is any concern at all for user privacy. From the 2006 eruption over News Feed to today, it is still the same issue of control over data privacy. Knowing that their information is so easily searchable makes people uncomfortable. But there’s no way to avoid data sharing under the new policy. A lot of people have already quit Facebook because they are concerned about their privacy. But they actually don’t have to. They can still guard their real identities by following a few basic privacy guidelines and getting a VPN for Facebook.
How a VPN for Facebook Helps
Advertising only works when you have a bunch of data. And only when this data can be used to create profiles. These profiles are then sorted into groups of people likely to buy a certain product. If you protect your identity with a VPN for Facebook, the platform cannot get enough data about you to put together a proper profile. You are anonymous under a VPN for Facebook and so they cannot get your name, location, contact information, emails, or anything else. So if you are not sharing any of that on the platform, then a VPN for Facebook users will seal off the other avenues. They can no longer take your data and turn you into the free advertising that invades your privacy and puts your security at risk.
