This may sound sketchy to some people. However, Meta said that the policy is rewritten” to make it easier to understand and to reflect the latest products we offer.” The company even said that Meta “is not collecting, using or sharing your data in new ways based on this policy update and we still do not sell your information.”
What is Meta’s new policy about?
An internal memo from Facebook’s Ad team earlier this year revealed that even the company’s engineers have no idea how to manage user data in a way that is genuinely secure. Employees at Facebook have even referred to the platform’s database as “open borders.”
Facebook’s location-based functions, such as “Nearby Friends” and “Whereabouts History,” which both collected the user’s location in the background, were recently withdrawn. Facebook’s app, on the other hand, continues to collect location data “for other experiences.”
Meta is quite serious about the whole Metaverse future and although people have mixed feelings about it, Meta is taking cautious steps regarding all its products and services. How do you feel about Meta’s changed policy? Comment down below.
