    Sharing is caring. Privacy is theft. Secrets are lies.

    They don't allow your legally wedded wife to call your bank and view account or alter any thing even in an emergency, unless she holds your death certificate, but they will allow facebook?

    Surprised to see people finally and unanimously don't trust Facebook. Sadly it's a bit late now they've collected and mined all the data that can possibly be mined. Banking info is just the final straw because there's nothing else left to milk, EPSIS are complete. The billions generated from all the information are now sitting in some back pockets, mining is not giving any new info and the money can't milked forever; the teats eventually run dry. If they could have established a reason to harvest banking information from day 1 I'm sure they would have.

    I don't trust them with my real information, even if they paid me, I wouldn't give them.

    Are 250M actually using apple pay, or have installed the app?
    Seems a remarkably high amount.
    How many iPhone are being used currently worldwide?
    Seem a very high uptake amount.

    Was going to post similar, I'm just back from working there for a few weeks... I was surprised as to the extent of this. Downside for me, paying by cash meant nobody had any change most of the time which never worked out in my favour :p

    I despair. Yet, I suspect number of youngsters queuing up to allow FB to also be their one-stop purchasing dashboard is in the millions.

    I am not even on Facebook, or Twitter, or Instagram, or Snap Chat, or WhatsApp, for all the reasons above. When Facebook was originally just a way of connecting friends, and just a way of connecting Friends, I loved it, but it has evolved into something completely different to that - so no thanks.

    I'd rather leave my card on a park bench with the pin written on a bit of masking tape stuck to the back.
