Facebook Admits Tracking Unposted Status Updates
Facebook has confirmed that it can track what you’re typing, even if it’s never posted.
According to the Los Angeles Times, two researchers of the popular social media site said they had tracked the activity of about five million random Facebook users in the United States and England but are no longer doing it.
Their study reportedly looked at how frequently people censored themselves while typing posts and comments.
Facebook said it’s within its terms of service to do this.
