I'm really trying to figure out what it is I'm missing with the Facebook data breach by Cambridge Analytica story. Facebook is a free service, it doesn't collect social security numbers or credit card numbers. And, most of my friends don't even include their birthdates or addresses in their profiles.
I'm far more concerned about the Equifax breach, which exposed especially sensitive credit history and the most important of our information. Yet, the current focus is really heavy on Facebook. In a world where you can Google your name and find all sorts of links that provide your address, age, and even any criminal history, why is there so much outrage now?. There has to be more to this story!
I've read several articles, and they simply don't seem to cover or get to the express dangers we all face because of this incident. Someone, please enlighten me!
