UK Ex-Spy Chief Reveals Big Tech Companies Like Google, Facebook ‘Know More About Us’ Than MI5
#1
The Cambridge Analytica scandal of early 2018, when it was revealed the personal data of millions of Facebook users had been harvested without their consent and used to target them with political advertising, sparked the outrage of users, lawmakers, privacy advocates, and media pundits.

Internet giants such as Google or Facebook have more personal data on people than any intelligence agency has ever had or should have, believes former UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) director David Omand, according to The Times.

Omand, speaking to international security expert Richard Aldrich at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, was quoted as saying:

“The big revelation over the last couple of years has not been about government intelligence agencies – it has been about the private sector. It’s the fact that the internet companies know more …than any intelligence agency ever could or should know.”

Great post.
"The LORD will take delight in you, and your land will be married" Isaiah 62 In January 2020 he said, "This is my daughter in whom I am well pleased". I know the bible to be true because dogs are more compassionate than rich people. Chuckle When I get my dog I know what name it will be and so does he.
