ProPublica Launches Chrome Extension to Show You Facebook’s Profiling

ProPublica has launched a Google Chrome extension to help you discover how much Facebook knows about you. “We’ve spent the year investigating algorithms, from how they’ve been used to predict future criminals to Amazon’s use of them to advantage itself over competitors. All too often, these algorithms are a black box: It’s impossible for outsiders to know what’s going inside them. Today we’re launching a series of experiments to help give you the power to see inside. Our first stop: Facebook and your personal data.”
