Facebook Stalks Your TV-Watching Pattern

Posted by admin In Facebook News | No Comments »

No, it’s not about finding out your favorite Television shows. Facebook is capable of knowing what TV show you are watching on your computer, cell phone or tablet. FB is likely to know about it regarding that users provide every bit of information to the social networking site. It is not personal anymore. Facebook has now partnered and collaborated with Nielsen, the most popular Television show rating site in order to track down the mobile TV viewing habit of the online users.

How does this work? Here is how. If you have accessed your Facebook profile from your mobile devices, any social network; Facebook, for instance will be able to know your favorite kind of TV shows and the shows you watch mostly. Then Facebook.com will provide all your viewership data and information to Nielsen. This is to help out all the advertisers learn a lot about the audience who watch Television shows online. I don’t see anything bad happening about this experiment help by Facebook and Nielson. But it certainly is a violation of user’s privacy. Chris Conley, an attorney of the American Civil Liberties Union in North Carolina said, “It’s interesting to me that I’m watching a video somewhere and somehow Facebook knows that.”

Nielson’s representative assures Facebook users that this process is all anonymous and privacy-protected. This opens window for Nielson to gain control over demographics of audience using digital devices to watch Television shows. Matching what TV shows Americans like with personal characteristics, such as age and gender, is intended to help marketers create better-targeted, more-efficient advertisements — often without reminding users that the data are being collected.

It all started back in the year of 2010 as a simple Facebook-Nielsen collaboration to gather all the information about the commercials that are being watched from desktops and laptops. At that time, Mobile technology was hard to cope with. Now now there are whole new ways to do that such as Facebook users from mobile devices.
