    It profits from you. And if you fail to recognize that, you are the perfect mark for them.

      ...and you very well know that.

      The point was that these organizations had a choice as to whether to put all of their eggs into the basket of a company that wasn't charging them for the service, that reserved the right to change the parameters of the service at any time without recourse, and whose interface was entirely out of their own control.

      They could have chosen differently, because there were many other options that would have given them more control over the interface. But they didn't.

      So why is it Facebook that is "murdering dogs" when they do something they have always reserved the right to do, and not those who entrusted their coordination to save the dogs' lives to an untrustworthy medium?
