In October 2015, on the verge of taking a break from dating, I met someone who would change my life forever in the most wonderful way.After many messages on Oasis, we exchanged phone numbers and talked for 2 hours a day every day for a week before he had the courage to ask me out for a coffee.Presumably it also reads GPS EXIF tags from your recent photos if you have ever granted it photo permission.
Of particular note was that his had all happened after I had to drop from the course due to health issues.
The instructor imported the contact list for the class at some point, establishing the link from him/her to you.
Using rooted android you can make a seperate permission dialog pop up every time an app tries to access certain APIs.
Despite having all GPS related features of Facebook and its messenger disabled, the Facebook Messenger app tries to access my GPS location at seemingly random times.
Facebook saved the incident and suggested her to me as a friend. My theory is that if you use the mobile app it factors in GPS location.
Several times I've been at a particular venue, without "checking in" or even posting.
This month we will celebrate our 3rd anniversary since meeting on Oasis!
We were both far each other when we first started chatting, he was in England and I was working in Saudi Riyadh at that time.
Fast forward over 2 years and we are happily in love, own a house together, have a beautiful puppy together, and have a happy future ahead with marriage and children in sight.
Going on Oasis was by far the best decision of our lives.
Presumably FB and IG share username/account linking for location harvesting, too.
