Facebook’s New Grab for More Data
For Facebook, of course, the point is for you to provide them more data about your life, which they can use to serve you ads you’ll be more likely to engage with (which makes them more money). But there’s potentially real value here too, if people can discover ways to share their music-listening and cooking habits with friends in a perhaps lighter-touch way.
The network’s new redesign aims to get you to provide more info they can use to serve you ads—and make more money. The question is whether users will be in control of privacy.
