Blaming people for sharing their data with Facebook for what Facebook does with their data is victim blaming.

Facebook gets the majority of its data not from our willingly shared posts but by stealing our behavioral data - location, contacts, offline tracking, financial transactions, buying data from partners, data from every other app in your phone using SDKs, tracking on other websites etc.

@njoseph Great framing!

You touched on the top reasons a tool like Facebook Container is suddenly so popular. It's ended up becoming the most successful addon that Mozilla has ever built - by far.

This NYT journalist deleted FB last year and has been updating each month how he's got on.

1) he's still alive 😆
2) he now recommends the FB Container to folks who can't find it in themselves to delete their account as he (and many in the Fediverse) have done.
