Facebook privacy are two words that don’t quite go together these days. If the mainstream consumer market has learned something in the last few months, Facebook privacy is almost non-existent. The terms of service (ToS) implemented by Facebook enable them to collect data treasures from their users and use them as they see fit.
Many users are trying to find alternatives to Facebook, Twitter, and Google, but often find alternatives that use similar Terms of Service. Most of the problem is that the services we are used to are “free” services. However, we also know that nothing is free and that these “free” services cost your data. A new infographic Kryptoszene.de demonstrations, people think that there is a lot to do in this area and 50% of Germans are willing to pay for better Facebook Privacy.
- Every second German will be willing to pay for better data protection on Facebook
- Only 26% of Germans trust Facebook when it comes to their privacy
- 65% of Germans are concerned about their data on the internet due to the government, in the USA this figure goes up to 80%
- Google search volume for “data protection” at an all-time high
- Shares in the cyber security sector with a price increase of up to 263%
Only 26% of German citizens trust Facebook’s privacy. Only Twitter and TikTok score worse. Microsoft is on the other end of the scale: 64% trust the tech company.
At the same time, significant uncertainty arises. Although Germans express significant concerns about Facebook’s privacy and related services such as Instagram and WhatsApp, 74% of citizens continue to use the apps on a daily basis.
Rob Braxman has an interesting video about Facebook and WhatsApp that you can watch below.
