Facebook knows about your past, present, and likely future. The world’s largest social network has a tremendous level of insight into your life, but HOW do they gain this insight?
Data Selfie is a spooky new browser extension that can give you an answer.
The free plugin tracks all the digital breadcrumbs you would leave behind when using Facebook (hint: it’s a lot of breadcrumbs) and creates your personality profile.
The goal of Data Selfie is to let you have a heightened awareness about the data you give out and a better understanding of how Facebook’s machine learning algorithms are likely employed when profiling you.
