Facebook sued for allegedly scanning your private messages

Facebook sued for allegedly scanning your private messages | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
A class-action suit claims that the social networking site monitors and uses your messages for advertising purposes.

 

The class-action lawsuit, submitted by Arkansas lawyer Matt Campbell and Michael Hurley from Oregon on Monday at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, says that the social networking giant monitors users' private messages in order to compile and mine data which can be used to profile web activity.

 

===> This data can then allegedly be used for profit through sales to marketers and advertisers -- who then can target ads based on the user's online behavior. <===

First, I love headlines that stretch the truth a bit. No one outside of Google got their Glass before March of last year. I got mine on the second day they were available, which was ...

 

So, what would I do if I were Google? Reset expectations. Say “this is really a product for 2020 that we’re gonna build with you.” First release is in 2014, but let’s be honest, if it’s $600 and dorky looking, it’ll be doomed — as long as expectations are so high.

Spotify Expands Free Streaming to All Devices

Spotify Expands Free Streaming to All Devices | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Spotify announced on Wednesday that it is expanding its free streaming option to all devices.

 

Spotify Free for tablets will also work in conjunction with Spotify Connect, the company's Chromecast-like integration for home stereo systems. Previously, non-paying Spotify users could only listen to Spotify Radio selections on mobile. Like Pandora, iTunes Radio andiHeartRadio, Spotify Radio allows users to listen to "stations" comprised of artists and genres, but not specific music tracks.

 

The new option will allow users to listen to tracks they select, just as they can on the desktop.

 

 

In addition to Spotify Free for tablets, the company is also rolling out a free streaming option for all devices, including mobile phones. This option, dubbed "Spotify Shuffle," the option will allow users to "shuffle play" all playlists in their libraries and shuffle listen to any artist they choose.
