 So last week , i attended my friend's wedding , one of his relatives took a photo for us , it was me, the groom , and another 2 guys that i don't know " his colleagues"

The next day, i woke up to this notification from FB.




i click it, and i get this





Right above the my photo  Huh Huh


I don't have the guy who posted the photo on my FB , he did not tag me , he simply posted on his wall and FB knows where and how i spent my night while i was signed out and totally offline.

also, while i do post a few photos of my ugly face once in a while, non of my photos have any similarities with the color of the picture, and my the picture was a bit dark, not zoomed it to my face.

 i have installed and worked with quite a few high quality face recognition cameras and non of them would catch a similar scenario so I gotta give credit for such INSANE technology.


TL;DR , if you have ever posted your photo on FB then regardless of what you do, they will always know your whereabouts  Grin

That's effing scary--and I remember how crazy Shazam was when it came out.  I was absolutely blown away by the technology, but this is frightening.

I deleted my FB account back in 2010 and never looked back, but doubtless that doesn't mean anything as far as them still having all the pics I uploaded.  Ugh.

I heard them say " you can never delete something from the internet" , didn't believe them, but now i do . I am almost certain that they will always track you, all it takes is 1 photo/comment or any piece of information you provide at any given time, and then they probably have these sophisticated software that will connect the dots and give them another piece of information about you.

I don't have the technical knowledge to evaluate the truthfulness of that statement, but I'm leaning toward agreeing with you.  On the other hand, I can't find any pics whatsoever when I google any variation of my name, so that's a bit of a relief.  Just for privacy reasons I keep a very low internet profile and don't have any social media accounts. 

But I had that damn FB account years ago, and I trust them as far as I can throw them.  It's a scary world we're living in.  The weird part is that it's become very much like George Orwell's 1984, but it's not the government spying on us--we're volunteering personal info via SM and recording everything on our phones.  Bet Orwell never thought that would happen.

there is a good chance that these information are at the government's disposal  , while the main advertised use of these information is for "targeted-advertisement" - for example when you google " cheap flight ticket from New York to London" , it's very likely that on your next visit to FB you will see an ad for a hotel in London, it happens all the time and these websites seem to share these information, i am sure many other members can relate.

Now i can't tell for sure about governments access to FB but i know about a guy who was arrested by the jordanian general intelligence when he landed in "Queen Alia International Airport" for a conversation he had on Viber with one of his friends where he was saying that " he might just join ISIS" as a reply-joke to his friend.

after 4 hours of investigations they let him go, but he said they kept watching him throughout his 2 days visit to Jordan " or maybe he was just paranoid" tho i doubt it.

some people believe that this is a false conspiracy theory, but based on a few things i have witnessed and personally experienced, i am certain that governments know more about us than we think.

I don't have a facebook or twitter account - I've never seen the reason. To my mind both sites seem to be full of inconsequential rubbish posted by kids or politicians. I've got a McDonalds promotion bean stuck over the camera on my notebook as well. I don't want to feel that I have to shave in the morning just to log into the net.

Facebook was initially beautiful.
 But now it has become dangerous and boring.
And full of idiots.

I went to a wedding and ended up all over Facebook. This pissed me right off as as far as I know there are no other photos of me anywhere on the internet. Had I known that would happen I would've attended with a shoe gaffer tapped to my face. Maybe with a slot for tonguing but I'm not sure.

This disgusts me - https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/facial-recognition-cameras-technology-london-trial-met-police-face-cover-man-fined-a8756936.html

In a few years I won't go outside unless I look like this.



So it's going to take me three hours before I go to the corner shop.

We are giving facebook, whatsapp and all those other apps access to our photos, phonebook, videos, audio recordings etc etc so yeah I absolutely believe what that guy experienced is true.

Let me share with you an experience I had with two friends of mine.
A few weeks ago I noticed a new watch that my friend was wearing. I asked him is that watch new? It looked like a Citizen watch with a leather armband. He said I wish, it is not a Citizen. It is a cheap look-a-like I bought on the street.
He told me how much he paid for it and I replied that he could have bought a decent Casio watch in a local shop since I was also wearing a Casio that day.
Anyway our conversation went on about watches and prices for a bit before we ended that topic. Now you are probably asking yourself why some of the words are bolded. Well that is because our phones and the apps on them (God bless them) recorded some of those keywords like watch, Citizen, price, new watch, Casio.

In the next few days, his wife (also present) during our conversation and myself started seeing sponsored ads on facebook and google about watches, Citizen watches, best local shops to buy a watch etc... The weird thing is that he didn't receive any ads, only his wife and myself. 

Now how is that for a scary bed time story?!

I’m sure this has happened to me , but can’t be 100% sure as subconsciously we may notice things more that have been mentioned recently in our thoughts. But Facebook is definitely using facial recognition, happened to me yesterday on a random friend of a friend photo.

I gather Facebook is losing millions of account, and I'm not really surprised. A masked burglar took a selfie outside a house he had just robbed, and psted it on Facebook - https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6788623/Masked-burglar-takes-selfie-outside-football-manager-Brendan-Rodgerss-home-robbery.html
With obsessive compulsive behaviour by people with such a low mentality, it's no wonder a lot of people can't be bothered with the site.

I must be happy for this very advanced technology. or unhappy.? there is something else that attracts my attention. I'm talking about wanting to buy something at home. A boat! and google shows me the boat ad for sale. but I didn't mention this before. and on the internet certainly I did not search the boat...  it is interesting, is not it?

That's some new level of stupidity. But the good thing is that he managed to spread the news before the couple could even do so.

Exactly because of such and similar things I don't use Facebook or any other social network. It's scars how invasive they and I really don't want someone to interfear so much in my privacy. I guess many got used to that and accepted that they actually don't have the privacy at all, but not me, for me that is not acceptable. I just wait to see how far this could go and where are the limits. People see just positive features of social networks and ignore the bad ones unless something unpleasant happens to them. But to my opinion these negative sides are becoming bigger than the positive ones.

Wow, it's scary. I haven't experienced anything similar because I haven't uploaded any of my photos to Facebook. I can't say that I'm very concerned about my privacy, but after reading your story I think that Facebook went way to far. If you have installed Facebook, Twitter and similar apps on your smartphone, I recommend to check permissions that you gave to these apps. For example I don't allow Facebook to access my camera, mic, location, contacts and calendar. It's always problem of social networks that people give all information about themselves with easy hand.

I'm not sure how our privacy and stupid burglar are related? I'm wondering sometimes, does people getting more stupid and stupid by seeing all stuff that they post on internet. But probably in past less stupid people had access to internet and we had no idea how many fools is around us.

It is actually much more sinister than most are aware of:

I dont subscribe to many of their videos but these two are dead on:
Govgle and farcebook along with other tech giants now use and buy others data as well as the GOV.

Yep, I Like your movement that you don't have Facebook and Twitter account, I agree with you for some think, I think to facebook and twitter only wast a lot of time and very bad effect our personal life, In some cases, it is such that if someone drinks drugs, then Facebook uses the same way.

Despite having  these advanced technologies, Facebook was used to livestream the killing of nearly 50 innocent people, the livestream went for about 30 mins without them doing anything about it.strange world we live in.

If it's not one thing it's another with Facebook. Mark truly doesn't grasp what privacy is nor does he care. This is a great article showing the actions he's made towards 'privacy' https://www.forbes.com/sites/rogeraitken/2019/03/20/is-this-the-proof-that-facebooks-ceo-mark-zuckerberg-wants-no-privacy/#2a55632f436b

I think Facebook has used technology that can able to match the face and detect identity, even if I posted a photo with my friends it is auto-tagged to them even ain't tagging them. How weird isn't it?
Well, here's my conclusion. The photo went to the Photo Review and did not tag you automatically without your notice and approval. The reason why the face technology was invented is to give you convenience not to feel unsecured.

Some people want to save their moments and find their pictures online which is posted by someone not connected to them. Facebook wanted to help people to navigate their concerns and put it in a personal review center and let the people accept what should be posted or not. Simple click the button "ignore or not me" and that's the end of the story.
