Who is responsible for Facebook data leak

YOU!!!

If you use loads of free apps for productivity, if a phone call is too much costly for you, if buying a license always widen your eyelids more than normal, this is YOU!!!
The recent Facebook-Cambridge Analytica  incident is much of your story than Facebook. The company Facebook, CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Cambridge Analytica are still getting there ROI. I doubt if Facebook traffic has truly depleted. Many of us read Facebook Users' Data leak news inside Facebook, blog it and share on Facebook, so where is the company on loss???
Personal Privacy Protection is first responsibility of first person, i.e. YOU!!!.

You met someone today from a freelancing site, person sounds useful to you because he / she is willing to work for free, in the next moment you jump to conclusion and share Whatsap number  including all your work information. You don't bother to verify about this newly made friend in question.
You have many apps, preferably free app in your app drawer, and everything is in your reach. Your app never go offline even when you are sleeping. Data is cheap so why to take pain of logout and log in plus you have added an habit of notification first good morning in your daily routine.
If you are doing all this, chances are you will suffer sooner or later.
This is not fault of app, app developers or internet companies alone. Rather, you are also equally responsible.
The craze of things like Whatsapp is so huge that at times institutions like Banks ask for scanned documents through it. The people working in backend simply don't understand what can be taken through Whatsapp and what not. This is not fault of app but result of cheap manpower and untrained human resources.
This happened to me personally when a customer service asked me for information over Whatsapp. Obviously I won't like to use such a service that count on a messenger for information exchange or at least I will try to take care of it.
Sometimes back I have written whether HTTPS is a hallmark of security?
Nothing is Hallmark of security, if you do not use your subconscious for information exchange.
Definitely companies should be blamed and punished for incidents like Facebook-Cambridge Analytica. There is no doubt about this. This is responsibility of an organization to protect its users interests. But up to what extent? Should organization will be blamed alone???
Any app maker in the world including you and me says, download free, enjoy free. No app maker says download and enjoy mindlessly.
The Facebook-Cambridge Analytica made everyone vulnerable across world. Go and do necessary changes in your most important accounts before you turn out a victim.
HTTPS or any such security certificate is not a hallmark of security if people working inside such companies do not bother to take care for its customers interests.
We can not go back in the stone age, we need to go with the world so don't left behind but in which direction?
We cannot control others but we can control our habits.
Do not share sensitive information with strangers.
Do not share sensitive information over an app, preferably newly launched.
Do not share information over chat messengers, they are made for talk, gossip, friendship and knowledge exchange.
There are app for every purpose. When you share an information over an app for a purpose perhaps its travel through much secure route because the app maker know its purpose and secure it that way, so its possibly in better hands.

Why to discuss your stock market numbers over a dating site??? If you are doing it perhaps you are ruining yourself.
Please mind the Gossip is less personal and less sensitive information than your medical history.
Today, massive Facebook users are affected because they used it for every purpose. Of course Facebook is the culprit, but if you have shared all your information over a Gossip network, so you are also equally responsible.
Before you spend time on how to download and delete Facebook data, wait a moment.
So you won't get caught in a trouble, move your ass and make changes in your most secure information both personal and professional.

Shall I moderate blog comments

Perhaps you run a blog or you planning to have one up. You want more and more comment to build some links. Right? Everyone want. But the problem begins when you leave open comment section to everyone, so anyone can come and write a comment. Normally people start spamming.
This trend i have seen across all websites on Internet. So if you want to get some quality links moderate every comment. Be honest to yourself. Publish a comment if its worth else do away with it. A bad quality link or content on your site is like a parasite. Keep your blog clean of spams. Nobody likes those unwanted threads.
To say a no is better than yes.

Why read books

Books are boring; 95% people will quote this. However problem lies within you and not in the books. There are books for everyone. Problem lies within you. You don't want want to read. If you say reading is a difficult task tell me how many books you tried?
If reading is not a thing for you then you definitely miss out on learning. And without learning you will never fail. Then you are always successful in your own world. Reading books propels you to take new challenges because you learn from the mistakes of others. Human mind is designed to ask questions. And to raise that question you need a point of reference.
Your minds tells you what you ask to it. That's why Theory of Relativity has taken birth. Reading is like a vehicle, you need to learn to drive on it to reach your goals. If one book seems boring to you, go library, search there, you will one that will interest you.
Books does same work to your life that chewing on a bubblegum do to your jaw.
