5:22 pm
location throughout the day it also asked to see your amazon purchase history so but almost everything facebook was advertising this app to young people on their favorite platforms you can see in an ad right here so this was on snap chat and instagram places where young people hang out on the internet the goal here phil was likely to gain an edge on its competitors so facebook is essentially spying on what junk people are doing and they're saying oh look at this feature is being used a lot by another social media company maybe we should take that integrate that into facebook ok you say spying but facebook says people knew what they were signing up for all right i mean of course people signed up for this app voluntarily but a lot of experts say look there's no way people could have known exactly what they were getting themselves into and here's why i mean first off it wasn't even quite clear that face. book was behind this app at all and this is an informational e-mail it only mentions facebook once otherwise it looks a lot like a scientific study secondly it wasn't clear just how much access this app would
