Remember Facebook’s founder and CEO Owner Mark Zuckerberg mocking his naive users and calling them “dumb fucks” for “trusting” him? Now it’s getting even better as a popular application which ‘Facebook recently acquired allows the corporation a vast number of liberties via the users iphone. WhatsApp was in the news on Saturday February 23 because the service went down for over five hours. At the very same time, there was a massive drug bust in Mexico, with an alleged drug kingpin being captured in a joint U.S./Mexico law enforcement operation. I am not certain that Facebook purposely turned off whatsApp to thwart the suspect’s use of the app during the arrest, but the timing is certainly suspicious.
Nevertheless, I had installed WhatsApp [whatsapp.com] onto my phone some time back, before Facebook purchased it, and when the WhatsApp service was down Saturday, I went on my phone to look for more information about it to try and solve the problem.
That is when I came across the PERMISSIONS listed on the application index.’
