Also response to the following writing (Other’s response to above questiosn):
#our privacy has been kidnapped
One point in Lori Andrews article, “George Orwell…Meet Mark Zuckerberg” in her article stated “ When people realize that websites and advertising companies are collecting extensive information about them, many want legal change.”(P709) I agree with this statement because not many people how much information the internet is collecting from us when we are online. Many people also will not agree having certain information about them be given to others without their consent. Facebook being a popular social media site provides us a privacy setting feature to adjust per our preference, but now it is questionable why the privacy setting is actually there. If someone were to steal someone else’s personal information it will be a crime, then basically selling our likes, dislikes, where we live etc without our consent should be too.
Should “weblining” be considered as discrimination since the private information may be false? Why? Why not?
Is there a way for private information not to be exposed to data aggregators without a law in place?
