Original Message 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.
