    Facebook lawyer says users have no expectation of privacy

    A lawyer for Facebook argued in court Wednesday that the social media site’s users “have no expectation of privacy.”
    According to Law360, Facebook attorney Orin Snyder made the comment while defending the company against a class-action lawsuit over the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
    “There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy,” Snyder said.
    In an attempt to have the lawsuit thrown out, Snyder further claimed that Facebook was nothing more than a “digital town square” where users voluntarily give up their private information.
    “You have to closely guard something to have a reasonable expectation of privacy,” Snyder added.
    Although Snyder said that the social media site would be focusing more on privacy in the future, U.S. District Court Judge Vince Chhabria reportedly pushed back on Facebook’s argument.
    “What you are saying now sounds contrary to the message that Facebook itself disseminates about privacy,” Chhabria said, according to Law.com.

    If it's a "digital town square" why do they get to censor it?

    I always love it when the argument goes from "We're doing nothing wrong" to "Well, it's not illegal for us to do this wrong thing."
    A savage barbaric tribal society where thugs parade the streets and illegally assault and murder innocent civilians, yeah that is the alternative to having police. Oh wait, that is the police

    We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.

    As expected, FB wouldn’t know moral integrity if it was handed to them wrapped in Christmas paper and tied with a big fat bow.

    The contrast between the eerie silence of the scene that confronted me when I arrived just after sunrise could not have been greater compared with the thunder of hooves, billowing dust, raging water and cries of the stricken animals I had experienced the previous afternoon. A rancid stench already hung in the cool, damp air, as a number of hyenas picked their way silently among the carcasses gorging themselves on a feast of flesh and bone.


    After watching the hyenas for a short while, a lone animal moved to a ledge on the riverbank and for no more than a few seconds looked straight toward my camera; it was the perfect moment.
