I think that even people who dislike so-called conspiracy theory had better know the kinds of risk which are likely to be accompanied by the use of Facebook or Smartphone.

Dentsu CIA Completely Discloses Your Privacy With Facebook
– Headshot, Love Affair, Sexual Preference – Shuddering, Dangerous Watchdog Functions Come Out One After Another
As many as 57 kinds of private data collected by Facebook
One day, Mr. Max Shrem living in Wien, Austria suddenly got interested in how much Facebook knew about himself and demanded it to disclose his personal data.
In social networking service, we can download our own data to back it up. The directive on personal data adopted by the Council of European Union called “Directive 95/46/EU” enables us to demand the disclosure of even non-public data the corporation holds as proof of its legitimacy.
And then Mr. Max Shrem demanded the European office of Facebook in Dublin, Ireland through its website to disclose his own data. He received the PDF file consisting of a total of 1,222 pages, contained in CD. Its volume was equivalent to that of “War and Pace” by Tolstoy, which is famous as a voluminous book. It had far more detailed content than the novel and literally every data he had gained by clicking a computer mouse was recorded in it.
These data shown below seemed to be collected as large category.
01: About Me

03: Account Status History

What will happen if you make Facebook your enemy?
If Facebook gets serious about finding out a specific target, it is quite easy to completely disclose the person’s private data.
When you carry a Smartphone with you, it is almost equal to reporting “I am here” by the minute to CIA.
The real purpose of Facebook is not advertisement.
The corporation does not need to make big profits because a lot of money flows into it from CIA.
Their ultimate goal is to complete a terrible all humanity watchdog tool.
