Let us know what you think about this article

I just clicked on a link — it happens. 😐

First thing that happened was I got frisked. No, nothing — no, thanks. Please, GFYS!

Next thing is I get to see what this website wanted to tell me about in the first place (or maybe second place? Third? Whatever, nevermind 😉 ).

I scan down the page and there it is: Gimme your content! Um, I’m sorry, but this website also told me that that this was the LAST free article I will EVER see — like, I guess, forever and ever, no “happily ever after” for me. 😯

Um, so you want me to tell you something? Submit? LOL!

LFMAO!! 😀

As a young person very connected and reliant on the internet, I’ve kind of made peace with the fact that my data is taken and out there

Keywords: general , alexa , amazon , companies , data , facebook , google , info , internet , marketing , privacy , trust , webcam

There’s the argument that since we’re using Facebook and Gmail and stuff like that for free, our data is allowed to be collected (and used for marketing) as a trade-off, and while I guess that makes sense, it’s still kind of gross. Especially because that privacy doesn’t kick in once you do pay for an upgraded account or something. And with more and more companies just monopolizing everything like Amazon does for example, I think some have way too much info. If they get hacked, you could be screwed.

The film’s creators do not include insights from those currently working at the companies or any experts that take a different view to the narrative put forward by the film

They also don’t acknowledge—critically or otherwise—the efforts already taken by companies to address many of the issues they raise. Instead, they rely on commentary from those who haven’t been on the inside for many years.
