    Default Facebook android app reading texts and listening to calls

    https://www.rt.com/news/445802-faceb...ivacy-android/

    "Facebook tried to conceal that it was secretly vacuuming up call and text logs from Android users without their permission, newly-released internal documents have revealed.

    The hundreds of pages of documents, which were previously sealed as part of an ongoing legal case with a now-defunct app developer called Six4Three, were released yesterday by the British parliament — and they confirm once again that Facebook is more than willing to sacrifice user privacy for company growth.

    Writing in an email to colleagues, Facebook engineer Micheal LeBeau acknowledged that it was a*“pretty high risk thing to do from a PR perspective”*but said it*“appears the growth team will charge ahead and do it”*anyway."

    Explains why they try to push you to use the app when using their mobile website.
    Life has a melody.

    Fakebook stealing info and violating privacy? I'm so shocked at that.

    We now live in a lawless era where laws no longer apply to government officials.

    I'm pretty sure Facebook is the closest thing to the antichrist without being a singular person.
