What, and Why of Facebook’s Data Collection

PODCAST #17


Overview

This week, we dig into another data-collecting giant: Facebook. We talk about the different kinds of data Facebook collects from its users, the ways Facebook uses this data, and new developments in Facebook’s ability to recognize your face and read your emotions—and how Facebook is exploiting these new capabilities to better support their advertising network.

In news, one of the world’s biggest accountancy firms has fallen victim to a cyber-attack. We discuss what simple steps you could take to stay protected, and the newest successful attack developed by the hacker community.
