Is Facebook listening in on your conversations?  That’s the question Fox News’ Tucker Carlson asked after a Cambridge Analytica whistle-blower made the allegation during a hearing held by the British House of Commons media committee.

According to Fox News:

(Chris) Wylie also said he believed it was possible the social media giant and other smartphone apps were, in fact, tapping into users’ audio to customize ads.

“There’s audio that could be useful just in terms of, are you in an office environment, are you outside, are you watching TV, what are you doing right now?” Wylie said.

Facebook did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

Facebook users have long reported seeing ads in their feeds after only mentioning a product in passing.

The 28-year-old Canadian previously has alleged that Cambridge Analytica used personal data improperly collected from Facebook users to help Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

If true, it certainly gives one a whole new outlook on the social media giant…
