The comments from the site came after thousands of Facebook users gave a big thumbs-down to the idea that the social network may be reading their unpublished thoughts.

According to Mashable, an online petition on Care2, a social network for healthy living, has collected more than 27,000 ”signatures” from people who want Facebook to ”stop stalking our unposted thoughts!” The group is referring to posts, comments and status updates that people type out, then delete before they ever share, the report said. The petition’s creators are reportedly acting on a recent report written by a Facebook data scientist and former company intern, the report added.
