Yeah, Facebook?

9 Jul

Facebook is a data mining project. We are not the customers. We are the product.

The people who run this site don’t care about it when we tell them they have it set up poorly. They want conflict. It gives them more data to mine.

The more we complain about their terrible moderation policies, their crappy comment software, the happier they are because conflict drives stuff out in the open to be mined.

We are being used. We are the product.
