Niall’s virtual diary archives – Saturday 28th April 2018

by . Last updated .

Saturday 28th April 2018: 1.20am. Logged into Facebook for the first time in like a month, and got hit with the GDPR questionnaire as all Europeans receive. I see they have removed the nasty warnings they show after you tell them they can't do anything with my data :) that Megan was telling me about earlier tonight. I also, just for a laugh, downloaded all my data and found it now only goes back to 2009, plus almost all of the sections contain no data. That rather pleases me actually, I've gone out of my way to prevent the FAANGS accumulating anything about me at all. Though I am assuming that Facebook is no longer lying to me about my shadow account they don't let me download, as that carries a 4% of global revenue fine under the GDPR ... and that's exactly the thing, I know for a fact that others have tagged me in their photos etc, and I see none of that in my download. So as far as I can tell, they're still in breach of the GPPR. Unless they are actually claiming that no shadow account for me exists? Hah!
