Facebook could unify user profiles with Instagram
The purchase of Instagram by Facebook has been, without doubt, one of the most significant strategic moves this year 2012 and while teams Instagram and Facebook were going to work “Happy Together” (Facebook competes with itself to Camera through Facebook, Instagram clone), this shift towards a unified model can change things.
With this suggestion, Facebook aims to unify the information maintained by users and has dispersed among their own social network and other services that are also owned by the company (such as Instagram). Unify information from the point of view of information processing, involves obtaining a much more comprehensive and user, of course, this can translate into a much more segmented advertising and directed. Put another way, Facebook would use the information it obtains through its subsidiaries for use in the matrix (the social network) and vice versa.
More than 14,000 users have expressed dissatisfaction with this measure because, among other things, opens the door to use our photos Facebook our publications published or commercial uses and, of course, marry this information with our own activities in Instagram, further refining their market research (and improving its advertising platform).
For now, Facebook has launched this balloon as a query, and the truth, seeing the anger of users (and rightfully so) I hope they rethink their position because, to make this shift, the Data Protection Agencies half World shove it up because the social network Mark Zuckerberg is as much perfected this “dark machine” that transforms the data from users in advertising.
However, the intention is hardly surprising because many companies that share user information with its subsidiaries and other companies within the same corporate group, whether banking or telecommunications, so to some extent, something which is unfortunately common practice.Tags: facebook, Instagram, Privacy
