If you’ve seen the new outlook of the biggest social sharing platform of the world, take a look at the ‘edit profile’ part. Compared to their previous version, facebook doubled the personal information they were asking but this time in a way better formatted style.
People were randomly subscribing to groups or pages before according to their interests and now they want the users to specifically share their personal information under those titles.
Why? The answer is simple commercially for better advertisement targeting. Collecting formatted information means processing the information more efficiently and precisely.
This was invading privacy, is invading privacy and is going to be invading privacy. Social platform to making people connecting to eachother is just turning into a platform to exploiting people!
