Facebook may be planning to use people’s thoughts for advertising purposes. The social network is developing advanced new technologies that would let you type words “directly from your brain”. Its ambitious vision has caused widespread concern amongst privacy advocates, and the company has refused to confirm or deny if it will use people’s thoughts to sell ads.
