Mark Zuckerberg Thinks Facebook Will Read Your Mind One Day

facebook-privacy-200When it comes to your information, Facebook can’t get enough. From facial recognition technology to tracking your political beliefs, the social media giant loves to know the way you think. But what if there was a way the site could identify not only the way you thought, but what you thought? Mark Zuckerberg things this kind of mind-reading communication capability is on the way.

“One day, I believe we’ll be able to send full rich thoughts to each other directly using technology. You’ll just be able to think of something and your friends will immediately be able to experience it too if you’d like. This would be the ultimate communication technology,” he said. “We used to just share in text, and now we post mainly with photos. In the future video will be even more important… After that, immersive experiences like VR [virtual reality]… And after that, we’ll have the power to share our full sensory and emotional experience with people whenever we’d like.”

While it seems like the far-fetched stuff of science fiction, the technology is theoretically possible. But of course, the question of “could” is very different than the question of “should.” Users already have a problem with Facebook’s privacy invasiveness; how do you think they would feel if the site could read their minds?
