Stop us if you've heard this one: Facebook and Twitter profiles silently slurped by shady code


Theft? Freely given away shurely?

"This latest incident brings back memories of the largest of those data thefts: the 2016 collection of Facebook information by political marketing strategists at Cambridge Analytica."

When people give data away freely it's not theft. When people use dodgy Facebook apps to impress their so-called friends and boast abou having a particular type of personality, it's not theft.

Just saying.
