Pretty much everyone is on Facebook today and odds are you are one of the masses who use the social network. Another thing that’s common on the social network

Mike Ellsworth‘s insight:

If you’re not concerned about what you are inadvertently sharing on Facebook, perhaps the following paragraph from this article will change your mind:


"According to the researchers, the system they developed was 88% accurate for determining male sexuality, 95% accurate in determining African-American from Caucasian, and 85% accurate in differentiating Republican from Democrat. The system was also able to classify whether a person was a Christian or Muslim 82% of the time. Interestingly, the system was able to detect substance abuse about 73% of the time."
