Police WARN Facebook Users To STOP Using Reactions For One SCARY Reason.
Facebook is a massive enterprise, and ever since Mark Zuckerberg came up with the concept in his Ivy League dorm room, the site has been adapting, growing, and ostensibly taking over the world. In the realm of social media, growth is often equal to ad revenue -- but law enforcement in Belgium sees one Facebook update as a total breach of privacy.
In the past few months, Facebook added "reactions" to their website, but the police have been warning users from actually using any of them. Find out why below -- it might make you think twice before hitting the "Like" button.
There are a variety of ways you can react on Facebook these days.
It's not just about the "Like" button anymore.
So, why are the police against these reactions?
Nothing about them is illegal, right?
The police believe they're being used to invade privacy.
The Belgian police recently released an article stating that they believe the buttons are being used to gather info on Facebook users.
In other words, Facebook has ulterior motives.
According to their article, "The icons help not only express your feelings, they also help Facebook assess the effectiveness of the ads on your profile."
They think that the use of six buttons (instead of just the one, or dozens) is a ploy.
"By limiting the number of icons to six, Facebook is counting on you to express your thoughts more easily so that the algorithms that run in the background are more effective."
