I am irregularly on FB and for privacy reasons never installed their mobile app. Laura has the app and it's very convenient, for example, phoning our son in the US yesterday. But after watching the video, it will be incumbent to give this some serious consideration. Thanks for sharing!
 
Facebook is passively listening to EVERYTHING you say.

+Matthias took the time to create a very detailed (and scary) case for just how many of your rights you're giving away by simply having Facebook on your phone.

If you're not ready to give up Facebook yet (seriously, why not?!?) then use it only on your desktop where it can't listen to everything you say or is being said to you.

This is meant to start a conversation about what we are willing to let go and what we should protect in our modern lives. 
Are you willing to let your rights go? For what, and why? At what point is enough, enough? 

Watch this video and make up your own mind.

And if you do nothing else, at least share.

Great engineering!
 
Great timelapse of the Falkirk Wheel by Chris Laing. The wheel is the only rotating boat lift of its kind in the world, and is regarded as a Scottish engineering landmark. It takes the equivalent energy of boiling 8 standard water kettles for each rotation.
