Don't be afraid @shripathy . Even I have ditched Social Media apps.

If a colleague or a friend needs to be convinced about their privacy, I just tell them
What if there is someone who is watching you every single minute of your life?
What if someone knows more about you than yourself?
What if someone can project and predict your behavior before you do?
What if the choices you are making on the Internet are not from free will, but being fed to you?

I also tell them about the scene from the movie Snowden where the Govt. official watches the terrorist's sister-in-law.

Here is the link to the clip:
