Facebook’s slowness may be intentional; Andrew Bosworth, the head of the company’s reality lab, has repeatedly stated that the company does not want to “surprise people” when it launches new technologies. This is in response to Facebook’s fast-moving and unconventional mantras, its dubious data collection practices, and its cascading somewhat incompetent privacy settings.
But if Facebook doesn’t want to surprise people, it may have a more obvious indicator built into its latest product. When having dinner with friends last weekend, Peter had been wearing Ray-Ban Stories-until he pointed out the tiny sensor embedded in his temple, the friends did not notice. However, once they did this, Facebook’s biggest question soon surfaced: “So, you’ve been recording?” A friend asked, only half joking. Similarly, Lauren fumbled through the glasses while recording (and then deleting) the conversation with the editor. The editor never noticed.
In addition, although the model we tested was sunglasses with tinted lenses, Facebook provided 20 different configurations with three Ray-Ban frame shapes (Wayfarer, Round, and Meteor), including a clear lens version. Therefore, although our dark-colored Ray-Bans lenses are more suitable for outdoor use-in public places, it is usually allowed to photograph others without their consent-but buyers can choose a pair that can be worn day and night, indoors and outdoors Glasses.
All of this raises a serious question: how do people no Are you planning to use this technology to create sensitive, violent, or other controversial content? We are not saying that people don’t use glasses to save family reunion memories or a day on the beach-we just say that they also happen to be wearing the best sex video recorder in the history of the world, a recording that is not currently recognized as putting their mobile phones on them. The social cues in front of you.
Other problems stem from this presupposition, which is less rhetorical and more difficult. Are Facebook and Instagram prepared to deal with this influx of content? What happens if the person who created the content does this without the explicit consent of anyone else in the image and clip?The most important thing is the problem any Connected hardware from Menlo Park: When you shoot videos on these glasses and share them through the independent Facebook View app, how much data does Facebook get?
As for content review, a Facebook spokesperson said that glasses apply the same rules as any other content creation tool.They pointed out that using Ray-Ban Stories or Facebook View requires agreement to comply with Facebook’s Community standards, Which includes a powerful section dedicated to “objectionable content,” and Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger all use “a combination of automated technology, manual review and reporting tools” to identify and remove any content that violates these standards.
Listening to Facebook talk about it, it sounds easy. Maybe it’s too easy.
