thhe staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, a new book has been released that details how Facebook fired 52 employees between January 2014 and August 2015 for exploiting user data for personal means. Most of the employees who were fired were men who took advantage of their data access to find profiles of women they were interested in. Facebook has a zero-tolerance policy for abuse and has fired every employee ever found to be improperly accessing data. An employee was found to have abused access nearly every month, but Facebook still resists limiting internal access to private data.

  1. Never joined it, never will, won’t regret it.

  2. Ummm, wasn’t that what Facebook was originally designed for?
    How quickly the masses forget, Facebook was designed to rate college women on their appearance…… Not so “woke” but a conveniently forgotten truth
