Facebook developed the world’s first commercial face recognition software to ‘help friends find each other’. Google regularly gets fined for harvesting peoples data illegally. Another time they were caught scraping peoples’ WIFI data and associating it with coordinates on Maps; and they were caught recording peoples’ videos and phone calls within their browser-based comms platform. Microsoft pretty much have forced everyone to reveal what they are inputting into all of their products at any time of the day and also force people to share their contacts to use their apps.
