It's Kremlin malware. Delete it, and let's regulate and prosecute it out of existence.

For those of you still resistant, this private company is creating a database on millions of CHILDREN who never asked to be tracked from infancy as to their appearance, health, activities.

The company lied about its intentions to parents, if nothing else, that it had a long-term plan to monetize data shared about their kids between them and their friends.

Data on your kids is AT THE KREMLIN, TONIGHT.

Did you put up info about your kids, 2010-2014? "Billy's 2!" "We didn't vaccinate Tucker." "Jasmine is growing up so fast!"

Yeah. Facebook gave that to Russian intelligence services. They have that.

And now, we get free! facial! recognition! for everybody!*

*you can opt out tho, like we let you opt your kids' data from going to Cambridge Analytica - you did opt out, didn't you?

Facebook cannot be allowed to act with such impunity, interfering in elections, stoking genocides, provoking mob sentiments, and tracking our kids with no decency or guardrails.

Oh, and they want their own currency now, too.

Combined with Putin's capital, that's not a company - it's societal and national security risk.

It's Kremlin malware. Delete it. </>
