Your kinky social media could officially be keeping you from booking on Airbnb soon

We have already read countless stories around the world that professional employers are scouring the internet to view your posts before offering employment opportunities.

In 2016 Vice wrote ” Why It’s Perfectly Legal for Airbnb to Discriminate Against Sex Workers​“. “A professional dominatrix says Airbnb suspended her account because of her job – even though she wasn’t using the app to do sex work. According to experts, this is completely legal.”

We already know the U.S. government currently examines the social media accounts of international guests who plan on visiting the country. What you post in online life gets gathered up and examined so as to promote to you.

Before long, the advanced impression that someone has of you might be utilized to decide if you can travel. Specifically Airbnb may use this data to decide that you are so liable to disrespect the property you intend to rent.

Airbnb has documented a patent with the European Patent Office for new “quality analyzer” programming which will utilize man-made consciousness to assess individuals who are “related with” things like drugs, sex work, and hate websites. The system will trawl through your online persona including video and photographs over the web, to decide your reliability.

The quality analyzer will search news stories for mentions of you and any criminal activities. Along with a judgment about your social network, job and education history, Airbnb will decide whether or not you will allowed to use their platform.

Airbnb already makes a risk assessment on every one of its reservations. Its website explains: “We use predictive analytics and machine learning to instantly evaluate hundreds of signals that help us flag and investigate suspicious activity before it happens.”

Ultimately it is important that they do read and respect the rules of the properties and people they are renting with.
