My biggest problem is the lack of consent. And no, I don’t think clicking “I’ve read terms and conditions” is consent. We all know that no one reads that legalese. Most people don’t understand what it is they’re giving away or how it can be used against them.

Also data protection is just a nightmare, so even if you trust a company to hold personal data they’re bound to leak it eventually and they won’t be punished. I think we need some real insensitive for businesses to take security and privacy seriously. GDPR is a step in the right direction, we need something like that in the US.
