Is Facebook 'suicide monitoring' good or invasion of privacy

This one is kind of difficult. I do believe it is an invasion of sorts but if that was the only thing that saves a kid from suicide then I can't argue it's not worth it. So I don't know if the end justifies the means 100%.

It's kind of like sex... Invasion can be good and pleasurable...

Let's be honest, Facebook just wants to look like a safe/healthy community so that their reviews can go up. On the other hand, it's kind of the person's fault for posting something personal and then claiming invasion of privacy. If they don't want their privacy to be invaded, then don't post anything in the first place?

Given that you don't have to use Facebook, and that they fully disclose what they are doing, it's fine. Facebook's owners can do what they want with it. It is your choice to give Facebook your own personal information.

To complain would be like inviting someone into your house and then telling them that they are invading your privacy by being there.

At least that's how it seems to me.

Someone who plans to do suicide, if that person really wants to die without interruption will most likely just write letters or so. That's how they keep things private.

If a person shares something on the Internet, he or she should be aware that that kind of information will be 'reachable', either they like it or not.

Preventing something bad from happening is not an invasion of privacy. Just like if a person is about to steal something and we prevent them from doing so, we do not invade that person's privacy, we are just preventing harm from being caused.

Facebook spying is old news, with all the information they gather on you DARPA even has a virtual version of you that they plug into simulations to attempt to predict how you will react to events (1,2).

If cell phone companies were monitoring all telephone calls and texts to watch for the key words to indicate you may be suicidal we as a society would consider that an outrageous invasion of privacy. So why is it OK for Facebook to do it?

Because calling and texting are bigger sources of communications. Communicating and posting on Facebook is optional and it's not used as much as texting and calling.

Not anymore. People live on Facebook. .....................................................

More to the point, are your fake news sources worth reading for the amusement factor or should we merely report them to the authorities?
