Edward Snowden warned us over 10 years ago, in 2013, that these Big Tech vendors are doing mass snoop data surveillance in the PRISM program:
Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Skype, Yahoo, YouTube
I avoid using PRISM vendors, they are disqualified vendors due to privacy violations.

I deleted my Facebook business account years ago.
The only Big Tech snoop vendor I still use is Microsoft Windows 10, which I am in the process of replacing with Linux Mint.

I do not use Big Tech snoop mail, snoop browsers, snoop search engines, or snoop storage. There are privacy-respecting alternatives available.

I've gotten a number of these and have been ignoring them.  Just had a hard time believing it was real.  Now I know.  Thanks for the heads up!

Liz and Bill Spear  This is a good warning! My one Facebook business page has been warned several times. The other page looks horrid and has many crypto people recommending my page. I continue to report them as spam but it seems to be a losing battle they continue to return as different spammers
