This article explains the rising amount of distrust, in the minds of Facebook users. Facebook seems to be stacked with fineprint that risks the privacy of Facebook users. For example Facebook asks for the users permission to share articles you have read with friends, exept in big letters it says ‘read atricles with your firends’. Users click the button because it says ‘read with friends’, when it really means share all articles that you read online with friends. So Facebook users, expecting privacy when not on Facebook are surprised to see stuff they have recently done on the internetposted onto their timeline, without meaning to. Facebook has called this idea “Frictionless sharing”. This idea of “Frictionless sharing” serves the purpose of providing Facebook with more traffic. The sharing of articles and videos from the internet, on Facebook has been gaining popularity. What better way to gain more traffic then they already have by giving Facebook users the privilage to share articles and videos automatically? The more articles and videos shared, the more ads and users they can stack up. I think that this is ridiculus. Facebook already has more than half the world logging onto their site, at least once a month. My trust in Facebook has been falling greatly, and now I am going to re-read all those privacy settings that I have set because more and more options and exeptions are being added every week!
