See What Facebook Knows About You

Whether you love it or hate it, Facebook is here to stay. With recent controversy of Facebook selling user data – it is mind boggling how much Internet knows about us and that info is not going away anywhere soon either.

But it is probably a good idea to review what companies like Facebook know about you. Here is how to access it.

In just a few easy steps you can download your whole history from Facebook and review all the photos, comments and phone calls Facebook has on you.

Since you have signed up, Facebook has been diligent with collecting and keeping everything you have done on their site. Remember all those high school conversations with your sweetheart or those private videos and pictures  you have shared as well as documents.

Facebook knows it all. Sometimes it knows you even better than you know yourself. The big brother.

So in case you want to go through megabytes after megabytes of data Facebook has on you – follow the following steps.

How to Download Your Facebook Private Data

Step 1: Click on top right of Facebook page

Step 2: Select Settings

Step 3: Click on “Download a copy of your Facebook data” below your General Account Settings, and confirm with green button.

It will take you between few minutes to few hours for Facebook to send you your zipped file with all the data it knows about you.

Even if you only use Facebook from time to time, you will be surprised on what you can find in there.

 

Drones to Oversee Toronto / Ontario Highways

Big Brother is getting ready to fly overhead to make sure drivers are abiding by the rules of the highway code in Ontario.

Government of Ontario is studying  a way to unleash hundreds of drones around The Greater Toronto area to make sure motorists who take a high-occupancy toll lane are actually authorized to use it.

The way the technology will work is that drones will scan the body heat in the car to see how many people are actually in the car , and if not the right amount of people, The Ministry of Transportation might send you a ticket in the mail.

Government has given the contract to The Sky Guys, a Drone Technology company in the Toronto area. Jeremy Wang, The CTO behind Sky Guys said:

“Our solution is a long range drone. The idea is that the drone is flying just off the side of the highway. It has an on-board camera and snaps pictures from the front, side and back views of each car. Basically we have our own proprietary software that can count the number of people inside and then a report gets sent to police if there’s less people than they’re should be. (A ticket) is linked to your licence plate.”

Brad DuGuid, Economic Development and Growth Minister said:

“All solutions developed will need to adhere to the relevant regulations, including privacy regulations.”

This story brings 1984 book by George Orwell to mind, where the overzealous government oversees citizens every move. The book wrestles with oppression in a place where the Party scrutinizes human actions with ever-watchful Big Brother and defying a ban on individuality.

Imagine drones will start watching you to see if you have enough people in your car to use car lane, then if you speed, then if you fully break at the stop sign.

As 1984 Says:

“Big Brother is Watching You. Until they became conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.”

Watch out.
