Deleted my 14 yr old account yesterday after letting it sit there completely unused for three years. Felt good. Hope Zuck gets sea lice in his b-hole while out surfing.

i never really knew my grandparents but i'm pretty certain my siblings' offspring are vastly better off for having all their respective grandparents in their lives
including the torygraph readers and the deep bush folk

i trust they are not doing this to me, since instagram very clearly thinks i am a woman, i guess because i follow a bunch of women creators of ceramics, textiles, paintings, etc.

i have no use for the dresses they advertise to me but i like that i have “fooled” the algorithm with my non-macho taste

I've been telling this story to my friends because it really freaked me out. I'm sure others have found themselves in similar situations, but a few weeks ago I was at work when my boss came into my office and asked me about a radio for a 1971 Cutlass. At no point was it searched for on any device, not even the office computer that is not linked to my social media accounts.

About two hours later, I got bored and opened Instagram on my phone. The very first ad I scrolled past was for a 1970-72 Oldsmobile Cutlass radio from classiccarstereos.com. It was the first time that I was like "I'm definitely being spied on."

This is a topic I'm really interested in. I've heard a lot of similar freaky stories and had similar freaky experiences of my own. But I feel like this would be very simple to test and prove if it is actually happening. Just put a smartphone in a room and start talking to it about various random topics. Don't use it otherwise. If you see ads based on those topics, then it could be listening to you and serving you ads based on your conversations.

A similar test has been performed in an academic setting: Panoptispy: Characterizing Audio and Video Exfiltration from Android Applications. The researchers found no evidence of any active listening.

I think the truth is potentially freakier than some kind of active keyword-based listening software. The billions of data points IG/FB has on you are just good enough to predict even the most minute behavior in ways that seem inscrutable to human logic processes.

if your boss looked up stereos, it can work it out that way. location sharing lets them know if you were around each other and they can assume you were having a conversation involving things that either user was searching beforehand or afterwards.

we don't notice all the times that it gets it wrong because then we just assume it's regular algorithm inaccuracy

lol this rules so much, FB (as with everything) made a dumb promise that they are in no way equipped or inclined to implement and is taking forever to put together their dumb ad hoc oversight board with luminaries from e.g. the Cato Institute*, so a bunch of actual scholars and experts from relevant domains were like "okay fuck you" and put together an oversight board themselves and are just carrying on like they're the legitimate authority.






*my favorite excuse for delays has been that they were unable to get board members laptops during the pandemic.
