No, Facebook can not activate the microphone on your mobile phone in secret

The British website Metro has come across a Facebook patent that reveals that the online community is largely able to track users.


We mistakenly wrote that Facebook has patented technology that can turn the microphone on your mobile without notice. As The Verge writes, it is a system that can investigate whether a particular content has been played a certain number of times. This is done by associating a user ID and a sound print against a particular content.

The patent application correctly mentions that a device can record audio from another, but it is not mentioned that a device can be turned on automatically without the user aware of it.
