Facebook is being exposed yet again for its relentless and sinister plans to destroy privacy, this time from pushing unsafe visions of virtual reality (VR).
Stark said the outcome was predictable. And he suspects that the default “off” setting for face tracking won’t last long. “It’s been clear for some years that animated avatars are acting as privacy loss leaders,” he said. “This data is far more granular and far more personal than an image of a face in the photograph.”
Facebook’s vision of the future sounds more and more like they’re trying to recreate ornate slave chains and collars of the past for a new police state.
