No manipulation here. Nope.
I don’t like to brag. But on my Facebook account I have more than 10 followers. That’s double digits. Comfortably. Easily.
Should be catnip to data miners.
I mean, I was totally up for grabs. And yet, even though Donald Trump’s presidential campaign hired American data-analysis firm Cambridge Analytica … to gather data from over 50 million Facebook profiles to predict the behavior of American voters, according to investigations by The New York Times and The Guardian, I wasn’t one of them. I was totally left alone.
Huh. I would have thought that my long-held, liberal, lefty, anti-asshat leanings would have been ripe for their targeting, given my large Facebook following. My “psychographic profile” should have risen to the top of their hit list. They’d want to flip me good and fast.
But no. I remain as unchanged, unaffected by psychological manipulation as any one man can be.
Read just how little influence Cambridge Analytica has over my psychographic profile. I’m incorruptible.
