After a decade of use and all kind of verification, Facebook asks for my ID? What's next? Mass doxing?
So, how much this will influence Libra adoption? And, moreover, how many users will drop it and leave?
A few days ago the Facebook kicked me out of a browser and asked me to upload my ID, not sure why they think why I would be interested to upload my documents on the entertainment social media website but after full 10 years of various authentication methods, I really think they are turning into an evil force and a social spyware experiment that will not end up good.
It is not that I am worried about my identity being stolen or sold, whoever wants it can have it for free, together with my rotten destiny, but it is because I think that the move they are making by asking documents such as ID is absolutely unnecessary, stupid and unfair for the users.
First, I am not a terrorist, they can scan my entire activity from Facebook itself, the console shows where you went, where you logged in and how much you use certain apps that are not even inside of the Facebook.
Second, they already scanned my PC ages ago just to prove there is no suspicious malware - I have no idea what a fuck that was and I be damn if I care.
Third, I had a developer account and I used to have my bank certification connected - that's few octaves louder than all documents combined - why the hell they need my ID, for real this is ridiculous.
To make it even more pathetic, I am not even a great user of the Facebook, I share my blogs that are all from verified sources, I doubt they hate Github or ReadCash, I get inside of my account when I need to log into an application or a website that has only the Facebook login option or offers it as an option when I need to test something or check how some programming work, or to contact local services like phone providers or events.
But all of that I can do with other means and other ways of contact.
And if somebody wants to abuse Facebook and make a fake profile, that is easily done. But to chase users who are a decade online with them is just ungrateful.
I told my relatives and folks, none of them will upload their documents if asked, they will not even remake a profile but will abandon the platform altogether. Most of them rate Facebook as an unnecessary waste of time.
