Your privacy has been a hot topic lately.
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has decided to allow software developers access to your click-through patterns in order to track interests, and ultimately spending trends.
It’s called data-mining and it’s big business.
Mr. Z stands to make a lot of money by creating statistics out of your clicks.
Personally, I’m okay with that. I really am.
I understand that by participating online, I am revealing information about myself that can be viewed by marketers, hackers, ex-boyfriends (the entire world) to see.
I participate online knowing that what I put out there can and will be held against me in the court of opinion and statistics; that advertisers will harvest my email and personal stats so they could send me unsolicited offers.
In this day and age, a digital trail is hard to avoid.
With that said, we all want to be safe.
