Is facebook spying on you?

   Is facebook spying on you through your phone and computer? Over the years people have become more suspicious of the fact that facebook could be spying on you. Facebook has been in controversy for the past year from facebook users saying facebook has been using their mics and their cameras for advertising.  There has been controversy with the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg on accessing personal and private Information of the people using Facebook.Facebook has been secretly paying people to install a ‘Facebook Research’ VPN that lets the company suck in all of a user’s phone and web activity.” (Forbes) The reason people have been getting mad is because it uses the people’s information to get them to stay more on Facebook which gets Mark Zuckerberg more money. The reason people have been getting frustrated is because it uses the people’s information to get them to stay more on Facebook which gets Mark Zuckerberg more money. Onavo which is one of Facebook’s apps has been tracking users movements has been shut down by Facebook. The Onavo app has sparked many problems with facebook’s security problems. One girl in Australia named Adelaide Bracey says she was bombarded with sauna ads after talking on the phone to her friend about going to a sauna. This is terrible because facebook in this case is using people’s phone calls which sometimes could be personal and self harming so when companies are using this technology they could use it for bad. How this is possible is with the new technology of mics on phones which is for talking with phone calls.  Mr. Smith said ‘’ that is creepy’’ referring to the people who might have been spied on. In conclusion with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg using this tech for money and popularity this is not better for its users.
