Social networking giant Facebook has filed a patent for a new technology. These patents will automatically know the financial status of social media users and accordingly, will distribute the users in three categories. These will be three categories, which will include working class, middle class and high class.
Looking at this technique, Facebook wants to create a system that can detect the social and economic status of Facebook users based on data such as education, property and internet usage.
According to the report of IANS, information about this patent has been given on Friday. “It would suggest an algorithm that would help the users of the third party’s advertisement to reach targeted users by estimating the socio-economic status of their users,” the patent said.
The goal of Facebook to bring this technology is to reach the users according to their financial and social status accordingly. To know about users, Facebook has begun to ask their age and other questions.
These questions will be asked by Facebook
Users will be asked first of their age to know the financial status of users. These will be divided into two groups, which will have two groups for users between 20 to 30 and 30 to 40 years of age. After knowing the age, questions from the users like education, the use of the Internet, the home and the city etc will be asked by the user from Facebook.
In addition to these questions, information will also be collected from the users about their travel history, what device they are using, so that the user can be understood about the economic condition.
According to the information that has come to Facebook about this algorithm technology, Facebook users will not be asked about their income. Online information about your income is a very private question, which most people would not want to answer.
