Facebook will eventually read your mind

Facebook is working on a project that would read your mind, let you talk to your friends with telepathy.

Facebook is already creepy, where even just yesterday one of my personal messages sent through Messenger had been flagged as 'malicious content', even though I said 'all of your videos are great' to a YouTuber - but hey, their latest idea on reading your mind should be secure.

During a Q&A session, Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg said: "One day, I believe we'll be able to send full rich thoughts to each other directly using technology. You'll just be able to think of something and your friends will immediately be able to experience it too if you'd like".

But Business Insider has discovered a few job listings for Facebook's super-secretive 'Building 8' group, which is teased as a project that uses "neuroimaging" and "electrophysiological data" in order to create the "communications platform of the future".

I like the sound of that convenience, but I don't like the idea of one of the largest companies in the world having access to my thoughts - and knowing if they're hacking in as easily as you can into one of Intel's U-series laptops with a USB 3.0 stick.
