Hi Brendan. I love Choice campaigns and heartily applaud all involved for their passionate work on behalf of the Australian public. I have to take issue with one thing though, and it’s something I’m passionate about so feel the need to raise it.
Yesterday I received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the Lemon Laws - a campaign I signed the petition for and fully agree with. My issue is that the latest email requested that I like/share the campaign on Facebook. Now I understand Facebook has a huge following despite it’s attitude towards user’s privacy and how it treats their data, and that’s why Choice maybe feels a need to be there. On the other hand I’m surprised and saddened that Choice is actively encouraging people to use a company that is so loose with people’s online data and privacy. I personally stopped using Facebook a while back and will never use it again (or anything with the same business model), and would encourage more people to do the same.
I know I can just ignore the campaign request, which of course is what I am doing lol. As I said though I’m passionate so I had to make it known. I may be the only person at Choice or in the Choice community that feels that way and if so, will just go the ignore route with future Facebook requests
