“Aborted status updates” or “self censored” comments that you decide not to post are hurting Facebook…so they have browser based key logger to record that data and mine it for metadata.  \ \ You use Facebook for free, so the next time you are typing in anger, drunk and/or depressed, don’t be selfish and stop yourself!\ \ “Das and Kramer argue that self-censorship can be bad because it withholds valuable information. If someone chooses not to post, they claim, “[Facebook] loses value from the lack of content generation.”\ \ “Facebook monitors those unposted thoughts to better understand them, in order to build a system that minimizes this deliberate behavior”
