I found this message on Huffington Post, and the implications are creepy.
The link: DELETE YOUR FACEBOOK - YouTube
On the one hand I don't doubt what the author says, as we have already seen the government reacting to the outrageous allegations of Edward Snowden. They tell us he is a traitor, the people who spy on us, but he has blown open the lie that we are not being spied upon, both by the government and by corporations. On the other hand we, by virtue of credit cards and even simple pages like this are unable to hide. I feel as though by ignoring this message I am being excessively passive, while at the same time by deleting Facebook, a tenuous experiment in my case, I would be turning my back on the technology we have to come terms with, like it or not.
Then I read how the next version of the iPhone will allow you to store your credit card number on your phone. Jeez, there is no end to it.
I am pondering what to do, but I cannot look at my phone without imagining it to be a microphone monitoring me without my knowledge or consent. That freaks me out.
