4gewe3g6edge It might not be a person who knows us best, but instead our computers, thanks to the digital crumbs of seemingly innocent personal information many of us put online.
Digital Shadow, a promotion for the Ubisoft game called "Watch Dogs," which comes out later this month, scrapes consenting users' Facebook profiles and prepares a dossier of private information about them that is eerily accurate.
"We collectively are being scraped all day everyday. Not just by Facebook, but by virtually every website we visit via our browser and the various website technologies that we have built in," Robert Siciliano, an identity theft expert with McAfee, told ABCNews.com.
"What you're seeing here is a collective of a variety of tech all harnessed into this stunt that provides a transparent look of what's going on behind the scenes," he said.
Digital Shadow pulls from your tagged photos, even boasting: "We know who you are."
It also knows who a user cares about the most.
I exhibit a “high level of interaction” with my sister and my best friend from home. My “stalkers” are listed –- these are people who interact heavily on my profile. A few friends, my Aunt Carol, my kindergarten teacher who clicks "like" on every article I post.
The site also knows the friends I interact with the most. Finally, it lists my “liabilities.” These are all people who consistently tag me in photos and posts, thus exposing my data and making me even more identifiable to Facebook.
