Facebook ‘listening’ claim denied by professor – BBC News

Prof Kelli Burns has denied saying she believes Facebook is listening to people’s conversations via the microphones on their smartphones.

In a news story that went viral this week it was reported that she had said key words around her phone which then appeared on Facebook.

Prof Burns says there was a practical explanation for what had happened.

Facebook has previously told the BBC it does not allow brands to target advertising based on microphone data.
