I agree with you on paying for privacy. But I don’t think Facebook will buy into it. They are too greedy to accept a few dollars in return for our privacy. They want the big bucks that selling our data will get them. And yes, I have heard many stories about people talking about how Facebook seems to be listening to actual conversations. No smoke without fire.
I’m actually in the process of doing another story on Facebook that addresses some of these issues. Will send you a link once it’s up.
