We assumed you knew we were selling your data, says Facebook

FACEBOOK assumed it was common knowledge that they sold users’ personal information to the highest bidder, Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed.

Reacting to the latest privacy scandal to hit the social network, Zuckerberg admitted he was surprised at the fuss, because he has been pretty clear all along that the main point of Facebook was to make him rich.

He said: “We have a metric fuck-ton of data about you, your hobbies, your beliefs, and your deepest, darkest secrets, all because you chose of your own free will to hand it over to a private company run by angry nerds.

“How else do you expect me to make money from Facebook? It’s basically this or blackmail.

“That’s actually a great idea. Someone write that down.”
