Name: Aaina Jaiswal Student Number: 500508476 Facebook is one of the most effective and most popular social networking place. It was most commonly used for people to stay in touch who are either related or friends with each other and live in distant places but this has changed over past few years because some people including large companies have started to use Facebook as a source of business to promote the sales of their products and services. The option of creating a "Like" button for a company can be beneficial because there are many people who will be interested and end up liking their page which will definitely benefit the companies but this has got some disadvantages while it comes to the privacy of such users of Facebook. There has been many concerns regarding the privacy because it was being said that Facebook had the ability to store and share personal information of its users. As a result, these users were concerned and scared about their privacy due to the connection these companies have created through the invention of "like" button on their web page. Even if one is not a Facebook user, this feature can still allow Facebook to detect the web page visited which allows Facebook to collect data about the user's browsing habits illegally. This is a major concern because some people might not be aware of such a problem but people who are aware, they are highly concerned and afraid of the consequences of this privacy issue. To solve this issue one cannot change what has been done on Facebook because it saves all the actions done by its users in the past years, " The DPC has already received complaints that Facebook retains data - including status updates, chat messages, photo tags, and deleted friendships - even after users remove them from their own personal profiles." This can also be a downfall for many companies who are planning to go for this approach because the more aware people are about this issue the higher will be the reduction in the supply of their products.
