Facebook know everything
Talked about food with a friend on Facebook Messenger. After a while, you will see the ad of mixed nuts in the news feed. Then you have to scroll all the tempting offers of food delivery companies one after another. Technology should not give you time to think like yourself. They know you better than you do! Facebook is going to know everything.
How does Facebook know everything this? They have powerful AI artificial intelligence. This AI system ranges from your eating habits to your favourite clothes, restaurants, websites, hobbies; Everyone is sitting knowing. Google and all of Google’s apps do the same thing.
Data collection started after opening the ID on Facebook. When we click on a Facebook ad, what kind of event we are invited to, who is on our friend’s list. Who wrote what in the inbox, who we follow, what we talk about most in Messenger, Facebook stores all this information.
Tracking continues even when the GPS system is off. GPS is used for a variety of purposes, including location, advertising, data, news feeds and safety checks, Facebook said in response to a letter from U.S. Senators Josh Howley and Christopher A. Kuns. Josh Howley later leaked a copy of the letter on Twitter.
The South Korean government also fined Facebook 6.1 million a few days ago. It was alleged that Facebook had handed over the data of 3.3 million citizens of the country to a third party for ‘analysis’.
Google also always keeps an eye on what you are doing on the internet, what site you are visiting. Based on this, Google has created a customized search database for you with the help of ‘Predictive Analytics’. This means that if you search by typing something, Google will show you the search results the way it knows you. You may not get what you need from here.
However, in this tracking, Facebook is more than a stick. He also listened to the audio conversations of the messenger. Messenger understands what we are saying or not and starts showing ads accordingly. In this work, Facebook also copies the SMS from our inbox. Through all these conversations and SMS, Facebook understands who is interest in what. The matter was made public about two and a half years ago.
In March 2016, Facebook said that they do it thinking of the benefit of the user. Next year, the international media will also report that Facebook analyzes the audio chats of your messenger in its own way. Later, however, similar allegations were made against many other AI assistants. They also have the habit of Amazon’s Alex, Google Assistant, Apple’s Siri-Kan page.
