Facebook made mistakes and Cambridge Analytica and Kogan were just plain wrong. But when you’re on a social media network, you are not absolved of responsibility any more than you are when driving a car. Ford built it, but you’re the one driving it into a pole.
What Facebook did was still legal, in the name of business and, yes, kind of shady, much in the way many money-making corporations are. A site that relies on user activity and advertiser dollars to make money is naturally going to do whatever it can to increase both. Facebook is not a charity. It was not designed for social good, and I’m stunned that people still believe that Facebook should have started with people’s best interests at heart.
