Facebook Is Listening

I recently saw this article about Facebook using your phone mic to record sound and to then tag the different sounds to your status updates. Personally, the idea of Facebook listening to what is happening around me is super creepy. What do you think? Does it “remove every last bit of friction from the way we reference bits of pop culture on the social network,” as Ryan Tate of Wired noted.  Does this add a sound layer to your status update? Or is it just another invasion of privacy?
