Facebook pays money to teenagers to track their activities



Facebook has paid users, including teenagers, for tracking their activities on smartphones as part of their efforts to collect additional data to help it improve its competitiveness, the company said, but the company denied any spying measures to its customers. A TechCrunch Technology Specialist study showed that software called Unavo Protect before the label change with Facebook Research was used to collect data on usage patterns.
Facebook yesterday announced its intention to discontinue the OS on operating systems after the investigation was published on TechCrunch. It is not yet known whether the same applies to Android devices.
The report indicated that the work was interrupted by the application of Unavo based on a violation of Apple's privacy policy, and that the new version may be related to the same violations. Facebook paid $ 20 a month for users aged 13 to 35 to track their movements and applications. (AFP)
