Your Sex Life, Now Appearing at Facebook
Thought spying on you couldn't get worse? This week the adtech sleaze-o-meter takes us to, of all places, Facebook! The BBC (https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-49647239) reported this week that a study by Privacy International determined that "Intimate data, including when people have had sex, is being shared with Facebook."
Here's how this disgusting bullshit works. If you're a woman -- which many of us are -- and you use an app to track your cycle, look out. According to the BBC...
"Menstruation apps collect some of the most intimate data imaginable - from general health, to information about sex, moods, what the user eats, drinks and even what sanitary products she uses. Sharing to Facebook...help(s) them make money..." You see, it's good for the economy!
In other charming Facebook news, according to one reader, when he posted comments about my article last week called "A Conspiracy of Silence" (http://adcontrarian.blogspot.com/2019/09/a-conspiracy-of-silence.html) on Facebook, the censor-imbeciles took it down.
