I swear I've been victim to the facebook microphone monitoring thing. I've talked about things and started seeing facebook ads for them without ever having typed it into a computer or phone.

A few months ago I drove by a local business and they had followed me on twitter by the time I got home. I SUPPOSE it could be coincidence, but c'mon.

Coincidence? Maybe one of the two, but not both. And, even if it's just one, it kind of reminds me of the proximity advertising in the Minority Report movie.

I find it funny that they roll updates for iOS every two weeks but they never mention what exactly are they updating. And I think they've been doing this ever since I've installed the app on my iPhone, 4-5 years ago.

Usually I get a reminder on Facebook mentioning a friend's birthday. This time Facebook put the birthday greeting in my message. What's next?
I have been warning people for years, to stop using facebook......and to stop posting their innermost thoughts and personal data.

And if they must - then at least use a fake birth date.

The masses are throwing their innermost data away, like chaff to the wind. It's madness to lose all their privacy.

It's not even necessary to post anything of real use to facebook. Any time you install an app that asks for access to the camera, microphone and GPS you should know the app is using all three to monitor what you do and logs it to create advertising.

Recent news regarding Cambridge Analytica, Facebook and Trump are very interesting.

When I find a decent news feed on my phone, I'm going to dump FB on all my devices. All I've been doing on FB lately is viewing news posts and any interesting articles I come across (not many though). So, I've had enough of the junk posted in my timeline by click-bait artists and spam-vertisers and add to that all news about this leaking of data - I've had enough.

Just wait until you start playing with the facebook bots. You're going to lose your s if that was already scaring you.

Some of this spam is disguised to look like a compelling "story", but it ends up just being a fake news story that is really an advert.

I can't stand it much more. Spam is everywhere.
are you talking about this being spam, or spam on facebook?

Spammy tactics on any platform is still spam, especially if it's spam in the guise of being a compelling story or article. Going in this direction is very subversive, just to find out it's click bait to sell some spammy junk. I find this type of junk deplorable on Facebooks part. I've come to understand and be aware of this insulting tactic, but many aren't aware, and are still sucked into believing the advert is actually a story.

Guys, seriously, are you really that afraid of Facebook? Think about the voice helpers: Alexa, Siri or Google assistants - devices that are constantly listening to what you say... this is really creepy. I really don't know why people are buying these things.

I don't use Alexa or Google assistant. And I rarely use Siri because it makes so many mistakes.

As for Facebook, I removed the app from my iphone. Now I visit Facebook just a couple of times a day using my computer. I feel that is less intrusive.
