I made this meme because I’ve never felt more personally victimised before in my life. My message was blocked yesterday, which revealed to me two very concerning things.
The first is what I’ve suspected for a long time but could never confirm: Facebook monitors everything that you say.
Secondly, they don’t approve of roast rolls.
Admittedly, it was only a problem because of my ham fingers type “from.red” instead of “from red” but this is a perfect example of internet surveillance getting it wrong. Now whilst it may be just an interesting story for me if this surveillance tool was trying to figure out whether I was a dangerous criminal the implications for it making the wrong decision could be much more extensive.
Thankfully, Facebook has banned third-parties (such as the police) from being able to use Facebook to track down criminals and protestors. This doesn’t mean we’re safe from Facebook itself.
Hide your roast rolls everyone, internet surveillance is coming for you.
