Facebook has some really creepy plans!
Just check their patents!
Small thread with thanks to @jashkenas 👇

1⃣ Facebook wants to track your eye movements
using special infrared LEDs that shine into your pupil & cornea to determine gaze patents.google.com/patent/US20180… #Facebook #privacy
Facebook wants to reads your comments for positive or negative “affinity scores”
to generate sentiments and “trust scores”
and use the resulting data sets from trusted users
to train a machine learning model
patents.google.com/patent/US20180… | #privacy #facebook
to manipulate people..
3⃣ Facebook wants to “automatically sense, record and identify all types of activities such as walking, running, jogging, cycling, rowing, driving with car, bus, train, walking stairs, jumping, swimming, playing football & skiing” patents.google.com/patent/US20150… | #Facebook #privacy
4⃣ Facebook wants to “analyze any combination of the social signals“ to determine if you’re uploading “suspicious, unauthorized, or copyrighted content" -> Do your friends share unauthorized content? patents.google.com/patent/US20130… | #facebook #copywrongs
5⃣ Facebook wants to analyze the keywords you use while discussing “politician’s names” and “political, legal or economic issues”
An interface is then exposed for “Political analysts” or “marketing agencies“ patents.google.com/patent/US20100…

Cambridge Analytica will like that.. 🤔
6⃣ Facebook wants to track your location
even if you're smart enough to turn off GPS:
They will try to get it from a nearby “RFID reader, NFC system, Bluetooth device, MAC address of your router, or the device’s Wifi ID“ patents.google.com/patent/US20170… | #Facebook #Privacy
7⃣ Facebook wants to share your personal information with businesses:
For example, “food allergies and favorite foods” or “a list of books recently read” patents.google.com/patent/US20170… | #Facebook #privacy
Not creeped out enough yet? The orginal thread by @Jashkenas contains even many, many more creepy Facebook patents that unveil their intentions for the future
