Wait: Are Facebook and Instagram spying us

We all ask if Facebook and Instagram are spying us with our smartphone microphone to target ads.

Many times we would chat are talking with someone about a certain topic, then sudden ads would appear in front of us.

A Facebook official mentioned that they don’t spy people. He said that most probably people would like a certain page or ad, and then similar ads would appear to them.

“So maybe you’re really into food and restaurants. You saw a restaurant on Facebook or Instagram and you really like the thing. It’s top of mind, maybe it’s subconscious and then it bubbles up later. I think this kind of thing happens often in a way that’s really subtle.” He said.

Ads can be targeted in countless ways, many so complex and simple that they don’t seem obvious or natural, he said.


Are you convinced but what he said?
