How to Do Privacy
In the 21st century, so much of our life is online - work, socialising, dating, shopping - we have surrendered everything from our faceprint to our fingerprints, even our location. While we love to meet and converse online through email, group-chat platforms, social media - do we know the privacy implications of the information and data were sharing with the world?
The trade off for all these free services is that they want to know who you are and what you do online. Your data is up for grabs - a process known as data mining. These sites combine what you freely tell them about yourself, such as your email address and name, along with "breadcrumbs" from many of the websites you visit regularly: online shopping; searches on your browser; social media friends and followers, products you've purchased from online merchants and retailers; and not to mention your current location.
Just a few breadcrumbs can go a long way in putting together a comprehensive profile of your social and spending habits, as well as sensitive personal information. Peter Burnett traces the journey of how we came to surrender so much of our privacy and questions how we can reclaim our lost freedoms.
