Facebook has broken our trust. Again. Court documents revealed this week from a lawsuit in California have exposed that Facebook, aka Meta, secretly spied on user activities on competitor websites like Snapchat, Amazon, and YouTube under “Project Ghostbusters.” This project, which ran from 2016 to 2019, was part of an effort to gain insights into competitors’ user behaviors and involved decrypting encrypted traffic to analyze it. Despite Meta’s claim that these practices were old news and irrelevant to the case, the revelations have raised significant concerns about privacy and the lengths to which Facebook went to maintain its dominance in the social media space. This isn’t likely to change any of our behavior, thought, as we will all likely forget about it in two weeks.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg asked employees to find analytics of its rival Snapchat, as found in newly unsealed court documents.
