Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 12, 2019

iPhone owners, beware. It appears Facebook might be actively using your camera without your knowledge while you're scrolling your feed. The issue has come to light after a user going by the name Joshua Maddux took to Twitter to report the unusual behavior, which occurs in the Facebook app for iOS. In footage he shared, you can see his camera actively working in the background as he scrolls through his feed.

The problem becomes evident due to a bug that shows the camera feed in a tiny sliver on the left side of your screen, when you open a photo in the app and swipe down. TNW has since been able to independently reproduce the issue.

For the same reasons we need a Constitution to protect us from Government, we need a Constitution to protect us from moneyed interests.

I've never used the Facebook app. I use the watered down mobile site to check for notifications and updates. If I actually want to do something useful on it, like edit my friends lists or photo albums, I go on the WWW site on my laptop.
