Yes, I'm aware, and that's one reason that I don't use either whatscrapp or instafart.
There is no social media on my phone, I don't even use FB or arrse for that matter on my phone, even through the web browser.
However, Zuck is about maximising revenue from all streams, most of which comes from advertising. Hence he'd like everyone to be on all of his platforms to boost cross platform revenues and advertising uptake.
ETA, I won't be using facial recognition, or eye scanners or the like either. My laptop camera has a small piece of black nasty over the camera which is only removed when I'm doing Zoom or Teams meetings or facetiming the family.
That's exactly the same for me. I also have the camera switched off in the software settings of Edge and in my AV. Same with the mic.
I only use my smart phone for phone calls & text messages and occasionally if I'm away somewhere and have taken my laptop with me, as a means to connect to the interwebs. At all other times my mobile network connection is switched off on the phone as is bluetooth unless I want the ability to use hands free whilst driving, and I very seldom have the need for that. It also extends the battery life between charges. I don't do Zoom or Teams.
