2. Category: Privacy
3. Level: National
4. This is a problem that faces individuals with Facebook profiles.
6. We all know that Facebook uses our personal information and tracks what we click on to obtain information for advertisers. It’s nothing new but they want to add names and profile pictures onto the pile of information already being obtained from profiles. It’s like being violated. Granted, Facebook is online and everything you put online is out there for people to see but I believe it’s being taken to another level when they are planning to use pictures and names. This site is to connect with people we may not see all the time or just to be social and make friends. I’m glad that they are taking the time to review what users think about it and hopefully enough people will be against it and they reconsider the new policy. I also think there should be online privacy laws to help protect people keep some of their personal information from being misused. At this point, when they want to take more information, the government should help regulate what information can be used and for what.
