Not everyone has luxury of leaving Facebook, much less scrubbing all their data. However, everyone can take part in a SINGLE DAY Faceblock global protest on Facebook on Wednesday April 11. That’s next week. http://facebookblackout.org/ #FaceBlock #DeleteFacebook
Take part in the single-day Faceblock protest and let Facebook know you’re more than just a set of data points.
From the Faceblock protest website:
Have the recent revelations around Facebook and Cambridge Analytica got you concerned about who has your personal information and how it’s being used? Worried about how elections and referendums around the world might have been engineered? Angered that fascist and racist content is allowed to proliferate while those fighting for civil rights have been blocked?
Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg have made apologetic statements and promises, but this is not good enough. Facebook has admitted that it is likely that all users have had their data scraped – that means that 2 billion of us could have been exposed. Facebook: you can do better.
If millions of us refuse to use Facebook for just 24 hours on 11 April when Mark Zuckerberg is due to testify to the US House Energy and Commerce Committee, and post about why we’re doing it, together we’ll send a powerful message that Facebook must do better. Our governments must also do more to protect our privacy, regulate digital monopolies, defend our civil rights and safeguard democracy.
