Friend: What’s your new address? I can come pick you up
Me: Thx, but I don’t want my address to end up on #facebook
Friend: What? I’m not giving it to FB. WTH?!
Me: Hum, you’ll probably add it to my contact on your phone. You gave Messenger and Whatsapp access to your contacts. So yeah if I give you my address there’s a good chance it’ll end up in a FB’s database.

Why is it so hard to protect one’s data these days? Is there a way for me to have ppl over without leaking my address?



@ilyess I don't understand why people who are worried about Facebook having their information are on Facebook at all. They that would sacrifice sharing with friends in the name of Internet privacy deserve neither friends nor privacy. Ben Franklin said something like that, and it's still true today.

@hex I think most Facebook users don’t really care about their #privacy. Saying that people who choose to protect their privacy over using platforms like Facebook don’t deserve privacy is wrong in my opinion. Privacy is a right in many countries and everyone deserves it, no matter where they live, if you ask me.
