Uber can track your one-night stands

uberdata-RidesOfGlory-year

Uber's bad PR just got worse.

A few years ago, Uber posted a blog entry titled "Rides of Glory." Uber searched its data, looking for anyone who took an Uber between 10pm and 4am on a Friday or Saturday night. Uber then searched that data for how many of the same people took another ride about four to six hours later--either from, at, or near the previous nights' drop-off point.

“The greater the male/female ratio, the more likely that neighborhood had a Ride of Glory.”

What does this mean? Uber can track one-night stands.
