Quite funny that this story appears in a "News Paper" that is accused of posting lots of fake news. :)

Taking Action Against Platform Abuse
https://about.fb.com/news/2020/02/taking-action-against-platform-abuse/
Is that how Facebook expects to avoid it's responsibility of protecting their users data?

Taking Action Against Platform Abuse
https://about.fb.com/news/2020/02/taking-action-against-platform-abuse/
Is that how Facebook expects to avoid it's responsibility of protecting their users data?

It certainly seems a strange way to go about it:
Quote from: Extract from article
Today, Facebook filed a federal lawsuit in California court against OneAudience, a New Jersey-based data analytics company that improperly accessed and collected user data from Facebook and other social media companies by paying app developers to install a malicious Software Development Kit (SDK) in their apps.

I would have thought their first course of action would have been to prevent the improper access and collection of user data from Facebook.  E.G. how to prevent this improper access and collection of data from Facebook.

I have long held the view that social networking and privacy aren't mutually inclusive.  I have never joined a social networking company, right from their inception.

A screensaver I couldn't pass up.

Details and the download link are listed on my YouTube channel in the notes for this video.
I learned about this screensaver at a session that proceeded my presentation for the members
of https://www.uchug.org/ last Wed.

Whilst very interesting, I gave up screen savers a long time ago, based on the fact you don't see it when you aren't at your system (and its on).

I did have an aquarium one some time ago and you could vary the number of fish in it.

One of the ones I likes most (in the winter) was a real log fire, very realistic, but no warmth :)

EDIT: Typo.
