While it’s still possible that I’m really pulling this one out of my butt, here’s what I think is happening.
Because Big Tech like Facebook, Google and now Tik-Tok know you would be enraged to learn they were actively thumbing through your mind without your permission, they make it so it’s hard to pin down. They really are monitoring your every move via your computer, so when they use Digital Telepathy in a really conspicuous and egregious manner, you write it off as you must have mentioned something to someone without remembering it.
So you think your phone is listening to you. Or Tik-Tok is realy rummaging through your phone. Or something. Anything but the obvious — your mind is being read.
People keep coming to this site looking for information about “Facebook being cognizant.” While given macro trends, that is definitely a possibility, it’s more likely those people had their minds read by Facebook and it’s freaking them out because they can’t see what happened.
