He’s Coming For Your Inbox
In addition to making all profiles now searchable by the general public, Faceberg (above) is now selling the right to spam your inbox for a rumored $1 per message. In their words, “someone you’re not connected to on Facebook may pay to ensure their message is routed to your inbox instead of your Other folder.”
Combined, this means a stranger can not only find you but be guaranteed the ability to reach your inbox. You can still block a message or mark it as spam, but only after the fact.
Those with stalkers and/or a homicidal ex should also be aware that the sender will be advised of the time at which you saw the message. Because that’s totally not creepy.
This comes not a week after their Instagram subsidiary told you what it thinks of your privacy. In the latter case, don’t be fooled by PR damage control and press releases—keep your eye on the terms of service.
