Facebook Wants To Spy On You Via Hidden Inaudible TV Ad Messages

Social media giant Facebook continues to ramp up the creepy factor. According to a recently filed patent, Facebook wants to spy on you by hiding inaudible messages in TV ads.

Facebook has filed a patent for a system that hides audio clips in TV commercials. These sounds would be so high-pitched that they are inaudible to human beings. They would then trigger your phone to record all the background noises in your home. The patent application is called “broadcast content view analysis based on ambient audio recording.”

According to The Daily Mail, these secret messages would force your phone to record the audio of the private conversations you have without you even knowing. According to a patent application by the social media platform, clips taken of your background conversations and your movements across a room would help advertisers determine whether or not you are watching their promotions.

According to the patent, originally discovered by Metro, the system would use “a non-human hearable digital sound” to activate your phone’s microphone. This noise, which could be a sound so high-pitched that humans cannot hear it, would contain a “machine recognizable” set of Morse code-style beeps. Once your phone “hears” or recognizes the trigger, it would begin to record the “ambient noise” in the home, such as the sound of your air conditioning unit, plumbing noises from your pipes, and even your movements from one room to another. Your phone would even listen in on “distant human speech” and “creaks from thermal contraction”, according to the patent.

Facebook is currently working on the controversial software too, said a patent application published on June 14 this year. If you’re like the rest of us, you might think this sounds like an Orwellian nightmare technology which will let Big Zucker intrude upon the lives of millions of unsuspecting people in unprecedentedly terrifying ways.

The tech is going to be used to monitor what people watch on their “broadcasting device” so that the adverts they are shown on Facebook are likely to appeal to them. This would also allow companies to get an accurate sense of the size of the audience which has viewed their promotion. That’s what Facebook says in its patent, however, there is absolutely no mention of spying on our private lives, invading our privacy, recording our intimate conversations, and forcing advertising into the heart of our homes whatsoever.

      That’s a good image of Zuckerberg.
      B from CA, you asked over the weekend why your post went to moderation.
      It’s because you used the word, (Eis.)for Acid Etch’s current screen name. It’s happened to me a few times and it’s just one more reason why many people have bailed on this place. Moderation and vanishing posts equals a waste of time. Why would the mention of a single poster warrant that?
      It’s a place to vent and add your name to the list. Not a place for the free exchange of ideas back and forth. It’s gone from a prep site to a pseudo news site.
      As someone says, Sad.
      Oh, and Facebook can F off and die.

        Eisenkreutz was Eisenkreutz before he was Acid Etch. Suckerberg is obviously an intelligence tool. I always mute the commercials when watching TV, mute the volume when watching football, I can see what’s going on without talking heads flapping their gums. As far as police blotter news, spare me the control blabber. TV is boring. As far as Internet comments of course they are all used to build a profile of those who comment and to get the feel of the opposition to the present building tyranny. I pay nothing to read what I find interesting and offer an opinion as I don’t pay a cent for this gift from my sister.

      • Philosopher Deplorabilis says:

        I thought that was Acid Etch. Same writing style, same rants.

        But to move a post to moderation? Interesting.

  1. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

    B, here’s my comment. Facebook can get f#$%ed. It’s NOTFB [NONE OF THEIR F#$%ING BUSINESS] what I do.

  2. Bucktoothbarbie says:

    I absolutely refuse to play in that arena. Those that do would take their own chances on being violated.

  3. Kevin2 says:

    Five decades ago we caught blowfish at the NJ shore. They were delicious and dummer than a brick. You could put five hooks on a line separated at one foot intervals. With four fish dangling out of the water on a hook the fifth one would come along just under the tail fin of number four and get the last hook. The convenience of that food was that enticing. My analogy of the US body politic.

  4. TharSheBlows says:

    Only Morons and Social losers use FraudBook. I wont go near it. Anytime I hear someone say FB, I think Major Loser. Stay away from FB user-losers as they will blab all about you too and blow your OPSEC. If you post photos on FB with GPS GEO Tags which tells exactly where that photo was taken. You can be found and hunted down by anyone. You know all your stupid photos of your children you post on FB and what park they like to play at. FB is a sexual predator rapist’s lunch buffet. And you are stupid is to be on FB.

    • Archivist says:

      You’re wrong about the photos. The GPS and other info doesn’t show up on FB, as they further compress every photo you upload, thus making them even fuzzier than they already were. My photos don’t have GPS anyway, because I use a regular camera for new photos and scan the old ones.

      What’s really stupid is the people who are always “checking in” wherever they are. “I’m at this restaurant, or that sporting event, or the other vacation spot.” They are broadcasting to the whole world, especially people nearby who know where they live, that they aren’t home and won’t be for a while. It’s a wonder they all aren’t robbed constantly.

      I keep up a little contact with my old relatives who live too far away for me to visit often. The oldest one is over 90 and sharp as a tack. None of them know a whole lot about me. They certainly don’t know I post here.

  5. YohanSmythe says:

    This won’t work on mine – I have the listening-all-the-time turned off on my phone.

  6. kay123 says:

    My phone is as dumb as box of rocks.
    ok, I heard that…guys.

  7. Beaumont says:

    Sesame Credit (oops, I mean FB) would find a licensed, frugal, fit, productive, and sociable person, apart from politics. I’m still an adult. I have frustrations. I do the right thing when noone is looking.

    Advertising targeted for me, personally, would look cool.

    But, neighborhood rivals are indebted, unfunded liabilities, wasteful of resources, unlhealthy, damage private property, and make terroristic threats, including arson.

    Advertising targeted for them, personally, would look tedious.

    It’s an echo chamber, or force multiplier, like the fictional tachyon machine, on Tomorrowland. Use it, intentionally.

  8. mews says:

    What kind of phones record? Just smart phones? Land lines? Flip phones?

  9. Farcebook/Fakebook is evil, plain and simple.

    For those that know that, no explanation is necessary or needed.

    For those that don’t, may they soon become enlightened and then STOP voluntarily cooperating with their being INvoluntarily surveilled, tracked, monitored, censored,

    and rated for either the blue list or the red list.
