Many users think that Facebook
might listen to their microphone's. Itís natural to come with these types of question. They think Facebook
uses their conversations to target advertising or manage your feed, but when it comes to me, I find Facebook
is tracking every activities we are doing on their platform. From a single click to a Whole conversation. So what about that when we are talking?
then Facebook denies listening to your conversations to target advertising. Mark Zuckerberg's
crew Clears, "crew says it wonít use your speech to target advertising or reorder your feed" ,
but itís still unclear what it does use the microphone for?
I found some claims regarding
ďThe Facebook 'Identify TV and Music' app spies on users by listening to and recording sounds through their phones, and uses ambient conversation to tailor advertising. "
But what i found is simply it depends on our actives what we doing, sharing, listening, watching. Suppose if you just given a status with what you are listening mentioning your location, then itís very easy to track your interest and what you want to see.
the digital fingerprinting feature would be opt-in only, meaning users need have to give the permission to start. Once it gets activated, an icon on the face of the phone would indicate that the microphone was active and the phone was listening. Users who opted in could still choose to turn off the feature on a post-by-post basis.
In my eye's its nothing more than a rumor, so nothing to be worry about.
Hope you find it appropriate and helpful.
