Obama Campaign Staffer Says Facebook Allowed Them to Harvest Masses of Data
Barack Obama's former director for media analytics told a shocked American public that Facebook allowed Team Obama campaign officials back in 2012 to mine tons of data that was collected on users by the social media site, and use it all for political purposes.
The collection normally would have been prohibited.
But because Facebook was "on our side," it was allowed to go forth, the former campaign staffer said.
Shocked? Don't be. Facebook is more political beast than social media friend.
