To again show further proof that these so called "Social Networks" are doing criminal activity and are illegally using personal information of their users for nefarious reasons, I want to turn to an article from the Los Angeles Times online news service, at www.latimesblogs.latimes.com, where it seems that a bill in the California Senate, that would enforce peoples' privacy when it comes to these "Social Networks" has been deadlocked and stalled in the California Senate, primarily due to opposition from these "Social Networks" themselves! It does make for some interesting reading, and creates some important questions about the tactics of these "Social Networks" themselves, especially when it comes to privacy of their users. Here is that LA Times article, and I have a few comments to follow:
Internet privacy measure opposed by Facebook, Twitter and others stalls in state Senate
May 27, 2011 | 12:47 pm
A proposal pushed by law enforcement and consumer groups to require strict new privacy protections on social networking sites stalled in the state Legislature on Friday amid fierce opposition from Facebook, Google, Twitter and other firms.
NTS Notes: I wish that people would get the message by now.... Many of these so called "Social Networks" are criminal outfits that are obtaining and using private and personal information for obvious nefarious reasons. It therefore is logical that they want to block any attempts and legislature that would ensure that their users' personal information remains private!
I myself have absolutely no "Facebook" account, and I have absolutely no desire to ever obtain one. I have long questioned their ethics and what their purpose is in requiring, and obtaining, so much personal information about their individual users.
Logically, if a foreign power needed access to personal information on their enemies, say American citizens, the old fashion way was long, tedious, and very expensive... But now, lo and behold, here comes "Facebook" where they can get that information absolutely for free because the users are gullible enough to put that information posted up freely on their "Facebook" pages!
As stated in this article, the privacy of the individual should always be tantamount even when it comes to so called "Social Networking". To block a bill that puts an individual's privacy as a priority shows exactly what these so called "Social Networks" are really all about!
