Un “Friended”

Un “friended” Mark Zuckerberg today. Deactivated Facebook page. Who knows what that even means? Data is out there. Can’t put private info back in a box. Yes. A purely symbolic gesture. Sure my 10 “friends” will be devastated.

There are so many other platforms where personal data is monetized as well. It’s called business. And now. They’ve become vital for companies to grow. For job recruitment. For charitable and political communities to mobilize. For families and real friends to connect. Unfortunately ISIS and Neo-Nazis use them the same way.
