Recently we heard about the Facebook data leak, what sort of data was it and how that data was leaked? How does it effect to us. Why someone will steal our data and do we really need to bother about it? Is that so serious? Will someone steal our bank account after this data leak, or will someone hack our phone and computer? Can a plumber please fix this? What is this leak?
Situation is so confusing for most of us who addicted to Facebook and using it just for the sack of connecting with their near and dear ones. They do share their happy moments, trip information, success stories, their kids examination results, family get to gather information, vacations photos, that’s pretty much it. What else?
For the sack of argument if some is poking in our Facebook data, why do we bother about? I meant is it that serous that we should delete our Facebook account? Then how will we spend our time, then how will we actually poke in others life?
So the biggest problem for many us directly or indirectly, how will be able to see what others are doing and how will we be able to share our stories to everyone, if they will remove their Facebook account and their be nothing for us to Like, Share, make fun off and nothing will left for comment. Situation is back to square one, what do we do now?
The co-founder of Whatsapp Brian Acton is so troubled with this that he had twitted “It is time. #deletefacebook. Now while using his twitter account, he forgot that on Nov 3rd, 2017 – US President, Donald Trump’s @realdonaldtrump Twitter account was deactivated for almost 11 minutes. On Mar 21st, 2016, the Indian Prime Minister’s official Twitter handle was owned by a teenager for almost 15 minutes. Just imaging it can happen to the world’s most power man’s account, then how can we expect ourselves to be spared from it?
On the different tangent, Tim Cook, the Apple CEO said that such sort of possession of data with companies like Facebook shouldn’t even exist in the first place. Unfortunately he forgot the news about the IOS code leak on Feb 8th, 2018 and when Hackers had embarrassed Apple with data leak back in 2012. Similarly in 2014 Apple admits celebrity accounts were hacked. The list in long. I’ll not go in detail. Here you can check on Wikipedia.
So let’s get back to our basic question what should we do now, delete the Facebook account of keep it? If you ask to me, I would suggest post this and move on;
