Testing Ratings System? New FaceBook Mobile App Feature Freaking People Out

FYI Facebook recently premiered a new feature that’s leaving some users freaked out and others running to sign a petition to have it removed ASAP.  This feature could literally knock current ratings systems on their backs and I have always known cell phones would become the new ratings system for everything from TV to radio and social networks would play a part. When enabled by users, (automatically with updates) this new function hears what you are doing or listening to whenever you update your FaceBook page.  Other sources are stating you don’t even have to be updating and that the app can randomly open your mic on your cell phone or tablet or desktop and hear what you are doing or listening to. We will keep you posted but suggest you turn your mic off in settings on your Windows or Apple systems.
