Cambridge Jenalytics I don't know about you, but some of my Facebook friends have been freaking out lately. With news of Cambridge Analytics using their profile data, my dear sweet Facebook friends don't want to Like things anymore.
That's sad to me because I like liking things on Facebook. With a simple click, I can say to my friends who ran marathons or posted photos of their kids (yes, I'm that old) or made videos of their trips, yes, great job, I like that. It's positive, and I like positivity.
If I heard the story right, I believe the company got everyone's data through personality quizzes. I've never been a fan of personality quizzes personally. I don't care which magical character I am.
I think I've already written a Sunshine Jen post where I make fun of personality quizzes. However, it's Sunday, and I'm feeling lazy, so I'm not going to put a link in. At that time, little did I realize that these quizzes were being used for a dark purpose. Now, in this time of revelation, I'm proud to present The Jenalytic Quiz. All of your answers will mean something.
