Are social media apps listening to you?

If you have a theory that your phone listens to your conversations and then shows you advertisements based on what you talk about-- you apparently can't blame Instagram for eavesdropping. Instagram head Adam Mosseri was interviewed forCBS This Morning in an episode that aired yesterday (June 25th.) While he denied that Instagram is listening to you, he offered two explanations for the phenomenon that aren't exactly comforting-- "dumb luck" or that people are speaking out loud about things they previously saw online, even subconsciously. Facebook (which owns Instagram) has long denined that it listens to its users, and investigations from people outside the company have failed to indisputably prove it.
