Facebook asking Banks for your financial info

54 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Facebook is asking major Banks to give them your financial information including credit and checking accounts. If you didn't already have enough reasons to drop Facebook like a bad habit now you have another very good reason to do so. 

Facebook is saying this is only so you can use Messenger to message your Bank instead spending time on hold using your phone. However this doesn't make sense because Facebook could offer that type of service without needing the Banks to give Facebook your financial information. Facebook say's this information will not be used to target you with advertisements or solicitations, but this is exactly what their business model is based around. I personally don't trust Facebook at all these days and only check my account about once every 10 days or so now only to see photos and posts made by my Daughters and Mother however this may be the last straw that forces me to disable my account with them for good. 

Facebook wants banks to share your personal finances: Report

I'm in contact with so many people from my past and there are so many photos I can't bring myself to bin it.

I've mentioned nastiness of facehook and another data_hore siphon gorilla over the years and surprisingly geeks galore still stick up for them and balk my every word, eeeh you can't treat the blind or whatever the saying.  I've always stuck to my guns/view so to speak and things will eventually come around and eyes will open-- eventually (hey that's the back of the cave, well no bleep. ), sadly ;though some of my geek friends now play it off as ' oh yeah I knew that.  '

Yeah, I'm kinda the same. I also run a group on there and moderate and quite a few others so it's hard to make that break - it's become part of life.

One of my accounts is a false name anyway so I think they'd struggle to get any info from that one :D

I think it's a really good idea. Think of it this way. Now criminals would only need to hack Facebook to gain access to loads of financial data, instead of thousands of financial institutions. Saves the criminals lots of hacking time.

You all seem to be forgetting something here, surely the banks don't give out information to anyone who asks for it? That would be against their code of practice. At the very least people would have to give their permission for this to happen.

This story sounds false to me.

You might not feel that way if you ever want a credit card or a loan if every Bank and everyone in the World suddenly has access to your Financial information.

As Crazy as this sounds, it may not be that far fetched in the very near Future.

It's not false because Facebook has admitted to this being true and publicly addressed it although sugar coating it like they sugar coat everything they do.

Psssh..."code of practice."

If I started listing the unscrupulous practices of banks, I'd never be able to leave.

I'm not convinced by this at all. And even if I was I'd still not bin it. Aside from the personal, Facebook has been the most important research tool I've ever come across. It's just too valuable.

This is my thought too.

How can the banks give out information without your concent and if they did and you find out, then surely it is your bank who is in trouble here, not facebook?

If facebook can ask for your details and the bank give it ( which i can not posibly see them doing )  then this means anyone can do this. Anyone can ask, does not mean they will get it..

Talk, too?

I don't think the Zucker cares what anyone has to say.... unless it is political and he can score points with the establishment by making it go away.

 

IMHO, he is looking for other people's bank accounts because he lost a bundle last week, and siphoning off small change from 2 Billion suckers can really add up.
