first facebook enforces uses of real names and linking accounts to phone numbers, latter says scrapping is not their problem.

If they don’t force the users to share their personal information, scrapping would not be the big problem they face now.

Clearly they don’t give a shit so…

Not on you, but this out of context cherrypicking to favour Facebook is so bad, it hurts.

I love that a week ago, the Facebook spokesperson statement was still this:

We understand people’s concerns, which is why we continue to strengthen our systems to make scraping from Facebook without our permission more difficult and go after the people behind it. As LinkedIn and Clubhouse have shown, no company can completely eliminate scraping or prevent data sets like these from appearing. That’s why we devote substantial resources to combat it and will continue to build out our capabilities to help stay ahead of this challenge.

Now they got caught, so they literally just removed that sentence about LinkedIn and Clubhouse, and added yet another meaningless sentence upfront to pad up the length.
