Just the tip of the iceberg

Facebook's "flagrant, repeated violations of Americans' privacy" pale into insignificance compared to the global plundering of users' contact details that took place when Facebook acquired WhatsApp and "shared" [contact] data.

This was even more of a privacy-wrecking irony as WhatsApp had set out to help individuals protect their privacy.

No fine can be large enough to compensate for the growing lack of trust in Big Tech that has resulted from Facebook's arrorgance.
