If you have Facebook at the very least do yourself a favor and delete the ap from your phone.

Is this in relation to the EPA? lol


This new policy is a near carbon-copy of Smith’s Honest and Open New EPA Science Treatment Act, or HONEST Act, and might seem reasonable on its face. (Who doesn’t want more government transparency?) But the policy, which is opposed by most scientists and non-profit scientific societies, will force the EPA to ignore most of the research showing air pollution can cause premature deaths (including a landmark MIT study in 2013 that found air pollution causes about 200,000 early deaths each year). That’s because the bulk of the peer-reviewed literature on effects of fine particulate matter and other pollutants is based on confidential data: human medical records, which are protected by federal law. Though hundreds of scientists have approved these studies through extensive peer review, Pruitt says the results aren’t reliable because some of the information isn’t publicly verifiable.

I agree they should but it would depend on how that's handled in the Terms and Conditions. Recently it came to light that Grindr was selling user profiles including HIV status to third parties. They defended themselves citing their written agreement with users that any information they post is public, but have since stopped the practice. I think it might be too litle too late since people are dropping them en masse.

On android phones if it isn't rooted, the Facebook app is undeletable, you have to force stop and disable it, its never removed completely...

Q predicted this, and has been talking a lot about @jack (twitter owner). A lot more will be coming out in the next few weeks.



Looks like his predictions are coming true (as always). I'm not deleting my FB yet, in case the class actions begin.

This post is aimed at whoever wrote the article.

There is no private information in medical literature, and photos are only used with written permission of the patient after all details have been explained.

Whoever said medical literature cannot be used because it is based on confidential information is full of crap.

hospital's shouldn't be releasing this info to facebook though. with the other situation you mention, that is all volunteered information.
