Here’s something scary to think about for iOS users, reported by Tim Barribeau at everythingiCafe:
Facebook wants your photos. All of them. In fact, word is that they’re working on a feature for iOS that’ll do just that — upload each and every photograph you take automatically. It’s a feature dubbed Photo Sync, and it’s already available for Android.
There have been a handful of apps and social networks that have started offering this capability recently – Dropbox and Google+ are two to spring to mind straight away. I’m not fond of the idea and have opted out of the offer on both of those – mostly because I just have never, ever thought to myself ‘Hey, I really want to share every single photo I take with the world’.
And of all the places I really don’t want to share everything with, Facebook comes very close to top of the list. They don’t exactly have a stellar reputation for having user privacy at the top of their list of priorities last I checked.
What do you all think? Do you want your iPhone uploading every single pic you take automatically to Facebook?
