"In perhaps the creepiest example, Facebook applied for (and received, last year) a patent for a tool called Techniques, for emotion detection and content delivery. It would use the camera in your phone to take pictures of you as you scroll through content. Facebook would then use facial analysis to measure how much you did or did not like the content in question, so as to determine what kind of stuff to send your way."
@Gargron guess it's time for a black dot sticker over the camera. Or just delete the Facebook app
Reminds me of this from a few years ago:
NYT: Mark Zuckerberg Covers His Laptop Camera. You Should Consider It, Too.
@Gargron Thats not creepy at all /s
@Gargron Facebook keeps getting outed for creepy shit so i think people reboost the old stuff to show how bad it really is
oh, you know right well they would monitor you even with the facebook app backgrounded
