Broadband Data Collection

With Facebook and Zuckerberg making a splash in the Senate and House, sucking up congressional staff time, there has been little discussion of rural broadband. While looking for some useful information, I came across this bit of insight. If you were to take a selfie and post it on Facebook or Instagram, you would be providing the photo and any text you used to explain the photograph, plus one more facial recognition sample. On the right-hand side of the graphic is the data that Facebook would be collecting when you post your selfie. I am not sure that everyone knows about this data harvesting.

Data Collection

Are you comfortable sharing this information every time you post a photo on Facebook?

The graphic is from the Wall Street Journal.
