Meta, the company responsible for Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, recently announced that it would update its privacy policy and will start using its users’ content to be able to train its Artificial Intelligence (AI) .

As the technology company reports, starting June 26 this year, photos, videos and descriptions of posts shared on social networks will begin to be used.

The decision by the company led by Mark Zuckerberg has raised several concerns, especially among those who are concerned about privacy and the protection of personal information. At the same time, alarm bells have been raised among artists who use these platforms to make their work visible.
