[quote:SilverPatriot:MV8yMDY5ODI4XzM0ODMyNTc3X0EzQ0MwNTIz] Never used facebook and it angers me that most websites that have links to facebook including those that sell products and facebook automatically tries to use a 443 secure connection as if you want them connected to your computer and able to gain more information than the typical port 80 connections. Most people do not watch their port connections nor do they care to, it irritates me as I m not a member and do not want them collecting any data of mine to sell and make money. [/quote]
Facebook accused of massive 'data grab' with new service that automatically uploads your phone pictures
Photo Sync being aggressively promoted to Facebook's mobile app users..
It will upload every single picture taken to the social network's servers..
Facebook will benefit from huge windfall of data it can commercialize..
It could use that data to build detailed database of users' lives...
Facebook has been accused of a massive 'data grab' after encouraging users to allow it to automatically synchronise photos from their mobile devices to the social networks servers.
The social network from Friday began asking users of its mobile apps to activate its new Photo Sync, which will automatically upload each picture to a private album.
Whether or not users decide share the photos on their public newsfeed, Facebook itself will still have access.
That means it will be able to mine those files for their metadata, including the location where the photo was taken, as well as use its facial recognition technology to spot those pictured.
