You may want to think twice before participating in the popular "Challenge of 10 years" on social networks.
The challenge is to show you photos from side to side, one for 10 years and another since now.
But now the questions that arise are: who is behind the meme? And could you use photos, with specific date tags, for facial recognition training teams without you knowing?
Lance Ulanoff, a technology and media specialist, says that the trend of 10-year publications should be a reminder of the type of data shared on social networks or through questionnaires that ask for all kinds of information, personal or in a different way.
"You are literally delivering Facebook data as we do every day," explains Ulanoff. "This is what Facebook will do with this data."
For its part, Facebook said in a tweet that is not behind the challenge and that its servers are not tracking the photos.
In the background, Ulanoff says he thinks twice before sharing information or images on social networks, especially if it could be public.
Anthony Franzini, from Mineola, says that he takes care of what he publishes on social networks, while Amanda Accetta of East Meadow says it's fun to see how people change in a decade.
