We are tired of repeating that Facebook is not going to change, that its policies are abusive, and that is a social network that you should uninstall immediately, before it’s too late -If it is not anymore-.
After being involved in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Zuckerber seems very remorseful and committed to the GDPR – the new data protection law that comes into force on May 25. However, nothing is further from reality, and that is that Zuckerberg wants to bypass this law by all means , leaving more than 1,500 million users with terrible privacy conditions.
As we read in Reuters , Facebook plans to skip the GDPR in all those countries outside the US, Canada and Europe . This would make Facebook users in Africa, Australia, Asia and Latin America unable to qualify for the GDPR, so they would have user conditions much worse than those that are to come. Total, more than 1,500 million users would be under this vulnerability .
In particular, the GDPR regulates that third-party companies can not collect personal information without our consent . Currently, this happens, and that is why the Cambridge Analytica scandal has been unleashed. Many third-party companies have access to our data, without us having explicitly accepted that they may have it.
