The funnier thing is that you have bought into social media marketing as a scandal... it's a little late in the day to be worried about it... unless of course... Trump.

Was any of this illegal, or just SMART?

Sore losers always cry foul when they're outfoxed.

www.motherjones.com... isnt this exactly what obama did during his re-election campaign? and to a lesser and failed extent Romney


Over the last year and a half at the campaign’s Chicago headquarters, a team of almost 100 data scientists, developers, engineers, analysts, and old-school hackers have been transforming the way politicians acquire data—and what they do with it. They’re building a new kind of Chicago machine, one aimed at processing unprecedented amounts of information and leveraging it to generate money, volunteers, and, ultimately, votes. Reed describes his campaign role as making sure technology is a “force multiplier.” And that’s about as much as he’ll say on the matter. The campaign declined to make Reed available for an interview, or to offer anyone who could so much as comment on the complexity of Reed’s mustache. “Unfortunately, we do not discuss anything that has to do with our digital strategy,” says spokeswoman Katie Hogan. Much of Reed’s work now is so under wraps that it’s literally code word classified—Obama for America (OFA) uses terms like “Narwhal” and “Dreamcatcher” to describe its high-tech ops. So in the spirit of the sweeping data-mining operation he helped build, I set out to learn as much as I could from Reed’s online footprint.

Nothing illegal anywhere.

But I'm sure Trump knew FB would go down.

They are 10 steps ahead at all times as we can see 💂

The firm is now at the center of reports that it exploited Facebook data and harvested millions of U.S. voter profiles without user authorization during the 2016 presidential campaign. 


This is the part that cracks me up.

People put all their information and interests on gigantic public forums and then act surprised when that information gets used for commercial and political purposes.


I like the part that says they use the information to track mental vulnerabilitys to inject information and data into the main stream weather true or not. Talk about conspiracy wtf.

I'm still trying to see how any of this broke any laws, or why I'm supposed to be upset.

It seems to me that they thought the Facebook data was giving the Dems an advantage, so now they're unhappy that Trump got access to "their" data.

completely different thing. Polar opposites. (when democrats do it, it's not only ethical, it's pure genius, but when republicans do it, it's criminal. Even though there isn't anything illegal about it)

Hope I cleared that up for ya.

In fact, Google/twitter/facebook all retain your data for similar uses/reasons (and to sell to others)


And this is why I urge everyone to ditch Facebook and Google. The amount of raw data they are sitting on when it comes to their users is beyond anything we've seen before. If Google or Facebook wanted too, they could pinpoint what you're doing right now, where you're doing it and for how long you've been doing it.

This isn't a conspiracy, this is something they've openly admitted to being able to do. While I've ditched Facebook years ago, I did the same with Google but this is difficult. There are literally no other companies out there producing phones that isn't Android, except for Apple.

Prior to these gigantic companies, we had a whole host of mobile operating systems from Windows Mobile to Symbian, to dumbphone OS's. Trying to farm data from these devices were difficult and limited as they didn't use apps as we have them today. GPS wasn't readily available, and was mainly locally stored maps / data and we weren't always online.

And the posters claiming that this is basically public data are absolutely correct. When we sign up, we legally waiver our privacy in order to agree to their ToS.

It was clever when Obama did it... but using data is now impeachable apparently, because...Trump.

Here in the States, the Trump campaign is a footnote. People are more concerned with people accessing their personal data through their friends' accounts.

Excellent - as it should be.
Facebook should have been closed down or regulated a long time ago.

Broadcast television is heavily censored. Facebook is also a corporation, which, in this country, has the same rights as a human citizen. (Believe it or not!)

Just some more on Cambridge Anylitica... Employees are ex UK government and also currently strongly tied to the present UK Government (that's a foreign power interfering in a US election) also some of their employees are said to be MI6 but that cannot be confirmed...
