Why Facebook uses Ray-Ban to bet our faces
The Facebook View app “promises to be a safe space,” according to a review, but uploading data via the View app to other Facebook apps made it unclear what privacy policies would apply and how the use of the glass’s internal record would ultimately apply. People who use Ray-Ban Stories may also be subject to additional surveillance. The View app explains that the owner’s voice commands can be recorded and shared with Facebook to “improve and personalize [the wearer’s] experience. ”The user has to use to avoid this.
If some (but not all) of the people we’ve been with know about Ray-Ban Stories, we may not be fully cooperating with each other. Maybe we don’t want to be listed. Or if we don’t have the glasses on Facebook, or don’t have Facebook, we may not be able to participate in social activities in the same way as those with Ray-Ban Stories.
Today, Facebook doesn’t have a portable consumer hardware device on the market that works with a mobile phone and back-end software, and its company is clearly new. It’s just listed five “responsibility” rules for people who buy glasses. The belief that people will actually abide by these rules even when there is little or too much optimism.
These glasses are Facebook’s first step toward building a complete hardware ecosystem for the company’s future metaverse creation tests. With Ray-Ban Stories, it gains new capabilities to collect data about people’s behavior, location, and mood-even if the company doesn’t already have access to that information-because it will move toward more long purposes.
While Facebook is conducting a rigorous beta test of our public space, concerned people are increasingly wary of the public and may even avoid measures, such as wearing hats or glasses, or turn away from anyone wearing Ray-Bans. if Facebook has added facial recognition in these glasses in the future, as reportedly considered by the company, people will have to find new counterparts. It robs us of our peace.
Ray-Ban Stories is now on sale at the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Italy, and Australia. How people use and respond to the device varies in countries with different social norms, values, laws, and privacy expectations. Facebook may be one of the first companies to try to deploy smart glass cameras, but it’s not the end. Many other versions will follow, and we need to take a look not only at Ray-Bans, but for all sorts of devices that record us in more subtle ways.
Now go out and get yourself some big black frames,
Because of the dark glass they will not know your name,
And the choice is yours to make them come in two classes,
Rhinestone shades or cheap sunglasses.
