New Android Facebook App Takes Photo’s And Records Audio Without Permission

Many people already know that both Facebook and smart phones are great tools for authorities to keep “tabs” on people. But this new development is downright Orwellian.

For me this is where they stepped over the line. Facebook came out with an app update today on Android and when I looked at the new permissions this version request over the previous ones, I noticed that by updating, you consent to let Facebook use your microphone and record with your camera anytime, without your confirmation. I know I won’t be updating, but how many millions will?

There is also this photo that I found being shared on Facebook.

    That’s messed up, but I’m honestly not surprised. I stopped using my StalkBook account long ago.
