Today I will be removing my account from Facebook. Alongside with several thousands of other people in the Netherlands. Arjen Lubach, a famous talk-show host, has made a special event for this. In this informative video he explains in detail what Facebook has been up to and what they are capable of and have been doing with our data. This was no news for me but it’s good that a larger audience is also informed now. I’m hoping that many people will join this event so we can actually make a statement by removing ourselves from the Facebook.
Update: It’s done! I’m no longer on the Facebook. The Volkskrant wrote a nice article about the ZML event this evening. Check it out here.
