Is FB Listening To Our Conversations!!!

Questions has been raised to Facebook that through social network sites it has been sending relevant ads after hearing the conversations between the users who use microphones.

Mr. Rob Goldman, the tech giant’s vice-president of ads wrote on the tweeter, “I run ads product at Facebook. We don’t – and have never – used your microphone for ads. Just not true”, as a reply of P J Vogt’s, the presenter of a tech podcast called Reply All, tweet.

Surprisingly, many people through their facebook page are seeing ads, after recent or real-life conversations they had.

But when another reporter asked him if it’s happening in Instagram, that is owned by facebook, Mr. Goldman replied, “Yes”.

Tori Hoover wrote, “A co-worker got an ad saying, “So you popped the question!” minutes after he proposed, before he told anyone it had happened”.

Brigitte Bonasoro wrote, “At work, happened to me though earlier this year. Working as a barista, got a burn, talked to my partner in person about it, went to Target, bought the burn cream, and saw an ad on FB for the exact product I purchased. Never searched for product either.”

Facebook denied the practice in 2016 on website in a statemen by saying, “We show ads based on people’s interests and other profile information – not what you’re talking out loud about.”

Mathematics professor David Hand from Imperial College London said, “If you take something that has a tiny chance of occurring and give it enough opportunities to occur, it inevitably will happen.

We are evolutionarily trained to seek explanations”, when the BBC investigated whether smartphones were “listening in” to conversations last year.
