Facebook pays teens to spy on them

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 1 February 2019

Facebook is once again in hot water, after it was revealed the social media giant had been paying people for access to their private data. 

The research app, which delved into the users phone and web activity, was shut down by the company but not before Apple banned it from iPhone's for violating its rules. 

Earlier this week, Apple had it's own scandal with a bug on its FaceTime app that allowed eavesdropping. We talk through these issues with Privacy Commissioner John Edwards.
