Facebook Monitors Everything You Type in Update Status

Facebook saves everything you type - even if you don't publish it, It turns out the things you explicitly choose not to share aren't entirely private, writes in a survey released by Jennifer Golbeck, director of the Human-Computer Interaction Lab and an associate professor at the University of Maryland.

The NSA is monitoring things we have actually put online. Facebook, on the other hand, is analyzing thoughts that we have intentionally chosen not to share.

Facebook calls these unposted thoughts "self-censorship", and insights into how it collects these non-posts can be found in a recent paper written by two Facebookers.

The researcher said that Facebook wants to know everything that comes in the minds of Internet users because the company is “encouraging users to download the standards of the things they share with friends on the social network.”

Jennifer said “Facebook monitors these unpublished posts to better understand them, with the goal of building a system that minimizes this behavior deliberate thoughts”

Typing and deleting text in a box could be considered a type of interaction, but It suspect very few of us would expect that data to be saved. When you reached out to Facebook, a representative told me the company believes this self-censorship is a type of interaction covered by the policy.

It is important to keep in mind that since Facebook is unofficial, it is not a space faculty can or should police. The people have there to connect with faculty and other people in an informal way is precisely why it can be a successful communication tool. When properly understood and used as it’s intended, Facebook can be an excellent virtual medium for building and maintaining real world social connections within a class.
