The other side of the conspiracy

From Marcus Hutchins comes this:

Imagine what a plot twist it’d be if it turned out Bill Gates wasn’t trying to inject people with tracking chips, and actually the tracking chip was in the social media app those people were using to warn people about Bill Gates.

“Please hold while I log on to this billionaire run social media website, which makes almost all of its revenue selling user tracking data to 3rd parties, to warn about how bill gates is trying to track me!”

On a serious note, social media tracking is more extensive than you may think. For example: those Facebook ‘like’ buttons you see on every website? They call home. If you’re logged into your FB account, it records that you visited that web page, even if you don’t click ‘like’.

BTW, why are you still on Facebook?
