Facebook Filed A Patent To Calculate Your Future Location

• https://www.buzzfeednews.com by Nicole Nguyen

Facebook has filed several patent applications with the US Patent and Trademark Office for technology that uses your location data to predict where you're going and when you're going to be offline.

In a statement, Facebook spokesperson Anthony Harrison said, "We often seek patents for technology we never implement, and patent applications — such as this one — should not be taken as an indication of future plans." While a patent application doesn't necessarily mean that Facebook plans to implement the technology, it does show the company's interest in tracking and predicting your locations, an important tool for helping it serve you more effective ads.
