    There's a report today that Facebook ran secret psychological experiments on 600,000 users without them knowing it. The report says that Facebook changed users news feeds. What do you think of this?

    In this day and age where privacy and personal rights are violated daily by those who are elected to govern over us, and what's good, decent, and moral are considered old-fashioned and outdated, I'm not surprised at all by Facebook's actions.

    I wish I could delete my FB account but I need it for work. I've deleted my private account and just use another one for work related matters.

    I don't have any negativity on my feed anyway as I just unfollow anyone who posts up rubbish like that.

    Facebook has always been shady and many new features have been implemented to 'enhance our user experience' but which are actually designed to ram more and more advertising (and therefore, more revenue for FB) down our throats, whether we like it or not... I actually dislike Facebook and all its shenanigans intensely.

    As an aside, if you have a FB account, try out the browser extension Social Fixer (definitely works on FF and Chrome but i'm not sure if it is available on other broiwsers as I haven't looked), it can be used to remove all the adverts, customise the look and feel of the interface and filter out any game, app or phrase/word you want. Without it, I wouldn't be using FB at all, regardless of whether I need it for work or not.

    Harrumph... curmudgeon mode off...

    I'd delete mine but I've got all my Cydia purchases linked to it.

    Don't think its very shocking, its Facebook, don't put anything of great importance on it. Basically use it to keep in touch with some family.

    Like, I guess I should get up in arms over it or something but I just find myself having a hard time caring. I use facebook as a tool to talk to family and friends. I do follow some pages but I very rarely look at my main news feed. Instead I have two custom lists, one for family and one for friends. I usually just check those two lists, make an insipid post or two about my boring life as a grocery store manager, and move on.
