Facebook Plans Video Chat Device with Facial Recognition

News that Facebook is creating its own video chat device was mostly overshadowed by the news feed change. The most intriguing rumor is the device will include facial recognition software, potentially letting Facebook track every user behavior without any user effort. There’s no reason to think anyone at Facebook even realizes this could be problematic. But let’s not single out Facebook: voice recognition means that every voice-activated device from Apple, Amazon, Google, and others has the same Big Brother potential.
