Albeit everyone is up in arms that Facebook mishandled this so-called data breach, it should be noted that the internet was not designed for privacy and that everyone is grabbing your data for their own personal financial gain.

Elsewhere on the net: original WhatsApp founder suggests you delete Facebook, here is how you do it or, if that's too much for you, how to clean it up. If you are like me, block everything.

If Cambridge Analytica hadn’t been able to get what it needed through Facebook, it could have gone to any number of other data brokers to get it, and then cross-referenced it to target Facebook users. If you’re a likely Trump voter, Facebook is not the only company with the evidence to prove it. Your credit card receipts, website habits, and demographic profile are frequently just as good, and there is no shortage of companies offering your data, without your permission.
