Facebook Wants Your Bank Information?

Aug 13, 2018 01:26PM ● By Flint Zerangue, Sr.

According to a recent report by America’s Digital Goddess™ Kim Komando, Facebook has been conversing with some of the nation’s largest banking institutions such as Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, and others.

Komando explains this is happening as part of a plan by Facebook to receive detailed financial information on millions of Americans. Facebook claims to want the banking information in order to provide Facebook users the ability to check their bank accounts through the social media giant’s Messenger App.

While this may sound good in theory, let's not forget that less than six months ago, Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg was testifying on Capitol Hill in front of some 40 Senators answering questions about how and why Facebook allowed Cambridge Analytica to misuse data from 87 million users, as well as how Russia-linked political content was spread to more than 145 million people during the election cycle.

So ask yourself, can Facebook be trusted with even more of your personal data?

Having a hard time answering that question; think about this, Facebook’s actual street address is “1 Hacker Way.” Nuff said. Be careful America!
