Facebook Game

Every time we see how the controversy hangs over Facebook by a single theme, applications that integrates social network. On several occasions, users have issued their complaints because, although Mark Zuckerberg has already announced that it would solve the problem, they constantly receive notifications and annoying invitations. Now, this is not the only problem that affects applications and games of Facebook, but also the collection of information from users who use them.

New and dangerous scam through Facebook

They explain in RedesZone than Vonvon, the developer of the game My most used words, has been accused of collecting information about its users for later economic benefit from these data. Specifically, they explain, this type of information would have been stealing to sell it to agencies of advertising that, as we all know, used it to segment their campaigns and take advantage of ads showing. What, for example Google, it is called as "personalized advertising".

An investigation has found the 'bad practice' of the developer
In this same study on the video game, the research has allowed to know that the software prompts the user to full access to your profile. And although this access can be restricted easily, in Vonvon would have been taking advantage of the ignorance of much of Facebook users. Another important detail, no doubt, is that the privacy policy of the game that we are talking about explained consenting copying and storage of these data on their servers.

Users can defend itself from gathering information on Facebook
From the developer, however, have ensured that the users have the possibility of refusing to share this information. That point is that, according to direct statements from this company, is used as a defense of a practice that, security experts, is not too 'clean'.
This is why, precisely, that we have seen repeatedly how security experts are running that, to protect the privacy of the user, the best defense is to use common sense. Because, unfortunately, on this kind of issue an antivirus is useless.

Thanks to a 'reality show', a Chilean woman named Francisca (20 years old) knew his partner, who he met over year on Facebook, was not the man who called Paxton, himself who currently resides in the United States. The fact was recorded and then was released on a YouTube channel.

"We met in a Facebook game. We started with a friendly relationship, and then she was loving. "We have been a year and I like for various reasons for the support that gives me and because you know understand me", featured the young, before the trip that made to United States to meet Paxton.

According to Francisca, Paxton sent flowers to his home and was detailed in every conversation that were waging for Facebook, but his mistrust was increasing to the extent that the so-called man refused to send their photos.

Social network game
"Currently we communicate through Facebook, but I've never seen it by camera. That generates me much distrust. He told me that the camera from your computer was ill-fated, when I asked for a photograph to be taken", he added.

The young Chilean, finally, undertook a journey to the United States along with the production team in order to visit her partner that took more than one year of relationship on Facebook, but nothing pleasant was the surprise that was after know that Paxton was in fact Lillith, a young Mexican woman who resides in the United States.

"I think this not nobody, nobody in my family knows it. It is not for interest, I care about the relationship,"said Lillith, who was passing by Paxton on Facebook.

This situation, Francisca returned to Chile with hot tempers, but then managed to forgive Lillith, with whom he still keeps contact on Facebook.
