Facebook Live Map, 2016


The Facebook live map is a reasonable function which fulfills people’s desire to eavesdrop. It is a new way for commercial marketing as well as show your own personality to whole world. The dots on the interactive map is a feature that observers can view active levels of livestreaming in different countries. Timing and exposure attract more viewers and is represented with a larger blinking dot. However, at the same time it exposes your personal data to the world without any security mechanism. In my experiment, I found that the dots were inactive in Prague. So I tried setting my data/livestreaming to public, in order to find out how I could show myself on the map to the whole world.
