This episode was recorded a while ago and it is in some way dated. Though this had to do with the Facebook debacle back in April (2018), the principles and concerns are still relevant. I reflect on the responsibility of Facebook as a company and on the platform. In short: Facebook knew that a company had “stolen” users’ information and they didn’t take action to protect users. I also think aloud about our activity online.
