-Here is a drawing i found and edited using Snapseed and Kik.

I was so shocked to hear about the things our professor had to say in class. I never really thought or asked myself why “Facebook” or “Instagram” and all the other “Free” types of social media were not charging us for accounts.

They are using use for statistical data and making money off of us… Check out this NEW YORK TIMES article.

Shocking. Now that I think about it, that’s probably the only way a free website would make money especially when the don’t charge for the account.

Although I love my accounts and don’t plan on deleting them or not using them, I like the idea of WordPress better. Where you pay and your more protected.

I guess there’s a lot of things we don’t know when it comes to these sites but no one ever really reads the fine print these days.
