Santa Zuck

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
He’s Mark Zuckerberg.

Conspiracy? Well, just bad ol’ capitalism:

No matter how Zuckerberg slices it, your data is at the center of Facebook’s business. Based on these documents, it seems that Facebook sucked up as much data as possible through “reciprocity” agreements with other apps, and shared it with insufficient regard to consequences for users. Then, after rolling back its permissive data-sharing APIs, the company apparently used privileged access to user data either as a lever to get what it wanted from other companies or as a weapon against its competitors. You are, and always have been, Facebook’s most valuable product.
