Internet power-user Mark Faceberg —a man who stole one good idea and has no others— returns to his roots of Hot-or-Not objectifying the college co-eds:
The first thing you’ll notice about Facebook’s new camera glasses is that they are not called Facebook Glasses — they are called Ray-Ban Stories. This is because they are made in partnership with Ray-Ban (a cool company that no one hates), and Facebook has had a rough couple of years in the public eye. And “Stories” because, you know, Instagram stories and Facebook stories and also Snapchat “story,” lol.
I’ll give Faceberg some awareness credit: he knows that Facebook is a toxic brand and is keeping its name below deck. But in his usual way of making something unwanted and bad and turning into a dystopian hellscape, Facebook is thinking about building Facial Recognition into these damed privacy-peepers.
The Buzzfeed article is funny, but it is also chilling. Imagine how many times you might be tagged in other people’s “stories” whether you want to be or not.
