Facebook paid contractors to transcribe users’ audio: Bloomberg

Bloomberg reported Facebook furnished anonymous audio snippets from its Messenger app to third parties, to be transcribed by ’hundreds’ of contractors. Employees at firms like TaskUs listened in on private conversations, the report said, adding that contractors were not made aware of the recordings’ origin. Facebook in a statement said it recently stopped transcriptions in light of criticism.
