So it seems social apps are delving a little more into my underwear drawer than I find acceptable.
I texted a friend who I hadn’t texted for a while, to say hi.
Next thing, Facebook has suddenly started offering that friend up as someone I should connect with.
I never, ever, got within three people of this person in the FB world. I haven’t emailed or anything.
It’s too coincidental. The app either read (and compared) who I accessed in the address book, or worse, noted that I texted them, and cross-referenced the entry in my address book to the database of details they had.
Is this normal now? It’s unacceptable to me.
And what are the implications for surveillance? I mean, I"m looking down the barrel of a hard right UK prime minister soon.
