What The Internet Knows About You?

How the Internet Learns About You?

The internet can find so many things about you. The internet can find out who you are based on your Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram posts. It can even find out more about you based on what you watch on Netflix. According to Eli Praiser, "Netflix can predict how much you'll like a given movie within about half a star." You are basically willingly giving up your privacy. Scary right?

Be Aware

You need to be awfully careful about things that you post. As shown in the video below, Mark Zuckerburg, CEO of Facebook, said, "A squirrel dying in front of your house may be more relevant to your interests right now than people dying in Africa." This statement had him under fire from others. He probably didn't mean it in a bad way, but it only takes one person to take it the wrong way,and then everyone else takes it the wrong way too.
