This is not true.”We show ads based on people’s interests and other profile information not what you’re talking out loud about.”We only access your microphone if you have given our app permission and if you are actively using a specific feature that requires audio.”This might include recording a video or using an optional feature we introduced two years ago to include music or other audio in your status updates.”Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterallMost ReadMost RecentSexual healthWeirdest sex questions Brits Googled in 2019 with some hilarious resultsBed SOS has revealed the most bizarre sex questions that Brits asked Google in 2019, in the hopes of encouraging people to be more open with their loved onesVideo GamesJourney To The Savage Planet preview Blast off into the unknown in this planet exploration role playing gameJourney To The Savage Planet is a planet exploration game that takes inspiration from early 70’s sci fi.
