Hopefully anyone reading this article is aware of the recent privacy news that have been blasting full on from the previous days. I wanted to have a healthy discussion regarding privacy.
From my perspective these matter to me:
- My identity not being stolen
- My incognito-mode browsing not being shared
These somewhat matter but aren't the end of the world:
- Current employer knowing i'm searching for a new job
Besides the above, I'm having a hard time caring what companies can know about me and how they can target me for advertisements. If anything, I wished they knew more about me so I can get better advertisements/recommendations. I once had to hear a bed commercial on pandora 3 months after buying my bed.
I read this article Top 10 Reasons Privacy Matters but disagree with the majority of their points.Most of them tend to be regarding the reputation of someone, and sure we all make dubious decisions from time to time, but who really cares? And should everyone be so judgmental if everyone had their secrets shared?
So how does privacy matter to you?
