A story from a local news station in Kentucky talking about the major privacy concerns that are associated with the use of the facebook “messenger” app. It goes on tell people that if they use the app the are giving permission to facebook to access your photos, microphone, camera, contacts, text messages, etc. at any time although most users believe this is simply because of all the functions the app can perform. Either way if one uses the app they are essentially giving their privacy away with the assumption that it won’t be violated, athough if it is, you agreed it in the terms and conditions.
