Anything you post can and will be used against you

Mike Elgan | March 13, 2017
Sure, the CIA can hack your TV, but public posts on Facebook could really hurt you

The output of these systems will be a profile or dossier on you, and it will advise users about whether to deny your request for a visa, turn down your loan application, avoid hiring you, reject your insurance claims, rebuff your business partnership proposals and more.

In other words, A.I. will use data on social networks to rank people based on how much they can be trusted.

The worst part is that this trust-judging process happens invisibly behind the scenes. When you don't get that job or loan, you'll never know why.

Yes, the CIA can hack your TV. But it probably won't.

The bigger risk is social media. Because anything you post can and will be used against you.
