I don't want to say, "I told you so" (because that's crappy and can come off mean-spirited), but Facebook is not a company that's on the up and up with it's consumers. Especially when it comes to privacy and the data they are collecting on you. It's one of the reasons I left the platform. If you have a quick 19 minutes, I fully recommend giving this podcast a listen.

Today, Explained: All Your Data for $20

If you prefer to read your news here's a wonderful NPR article about this whole debacle:

"Facebook, Google Draw Scrutiny Over Apps That Collected Data From Teens"

This is not the first time Facebook has been accused of going to extreme lengths to get user data. In 2013, it bought a company called Onavo and allegedly used the Onavo app to get more information about WhatsApp, a competing messaging platform that Facebook ultimately bought for $19 billion.
"To use it this way, and under their own name, is just amazing to me. I don't understand what they thought they were doing, or how they thought they could get away with this," Will Strafach, a mobile-security researcher who studied the app for TechCrunch, told NPR.

Be safe out there, friends! (Also, Stay Warm!!)
