Snippet: What Facebook Knows About You ☇

Shared on January 9, 2019

Ina Fried for Axios:

On Facebook’s map of humanity, the node for “you” often includes vast awareness of your movements online and a surprising amount of info about what you do offline, too.

The big picture: Even when you’re cautious about sharing, Facebook’s dossier on you will be hefty. Facebook tackles its mission of “bringing the world closer together” by creating a map of humanity, and each of us represents a tiny node on this “social graph.”

Nothing is shocking on this, but it’s a really nicely organized list of everything that is known.

Snippets are posts that share a linked item with a bit of commentary.
