Stranger Danger: Facebook Messenger Kids Security Hole Exposes Your Child

The Verge reports a security hole in Facebook’s allegedly kid-friendly, parent-approved, Messenger Kids app that let’s your child join a group chat with people you don’t know, and have not approved, exposing him to untold stranger danger. This is the latest breach of trust between the social media giant — that also owns Instagram and Whatsapp — and the users whose personal information it monetizes for billions of dollars each year. Proper privacy and security measures harm Facebook’s bottom-line, so how long will people continue to trust them?

Away from the toxic sewer of social media, in a Members-only conservative enclave, liberty lovers have created a forum to discuss time-tested principles as they clash with the news of the day. The Members write their own blog, and carry on vigorous discussions around 48 shows each month that are produced by their own dollars.

Facebook Sweatshop Scandal: Staff Suffers PTSD Screening Gruesome, Cruel Videos

Facebook outsources screening of gruesome, cruel videos, to a sick sweatshop where workers suffer PTSD and other effects of horrifying work under terrible conditions.
