One of the co-founders of WhatsApp is speaking out against Facebook. Recent privacy issues having people speaking up against the social powerhouse.
Sure. That way Whatsapp can make billions selling your data to big corporations and governments while using bots to manipulate you.
And wtf is "Whatsapp "??
Do you live on Earth?
btw , WhatsApp is owned by Facebook for those who don't know.
Yea, it says it in the article.
Cool. When we are done, let's delete WhatsApp, Tinder, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat. Let's stop them from reprogramming our childrens brains and destroying their ability to concentrate on anything for more than 5 minutes.
What are we concentrating on?
Nice try but that won't work. Chances are that your state or municipality's educational "leaders" have ignored the teachers and purchased some form of electronic testing for reading and math.
These tests are administered online and the data goes directly back to the corporation (with some ancillaries for the teachers.) Some of the questions can contain corporate logos/ names. Some of the questions can be used for marketing purposes.
Case in point: On the Star Reading Test, students are asked a question (with no other context):
Which word shows the most power? A) Strength B) Might C) Electricity.
Clearly, and it is my expertise, this is not a reading question. Marketing is not my expertise, but I am pretty sure this is a marketing question. It most definitely is not assessing a student's ability to read.
Why even use Facebook?. Wait a minute, do people still use facebook?! ... HAHAHA!.
