Facebook put out a patent application for a face recognition system that will match your face in stores and correlate it with your social media profile to assign you a shopper trust level.

Why Free Software need free tools? Because we shouldn't be hypocrats. We, as #FreeSoftware developers, have to listen to our own arguments when we say that the openes of our software is the reason to chose our software in order to avoid vendor lock-in and for security and privacy reasons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_nK6nP_RCY
