A false sense of privacy

found on Meme Base

The fact that Facebook was ignoring your privacy settings when it was profitable means they have never had a commitment to privacy, only a commitment to making you believe there was privacy. After all, the CEO did once call everyone who trusted him with their personal information "dumb fucks". Disrespect for others is pretty deeply in-grained there.

The concept of the false sense of security has been around for a long time now. I think it's time we started talking about the false sense of privacy.
