Have you ever heard of target advertising? Well, target advertiseing is when a big company that owns a social networking site or a search engine tracks your likes, searches and posts and can send you advertising that is based on your likes, searches and posts. this means that companies track your ever move when it comes to the internet and they can easily see what you are doing. This suprises alot of people. Another thing to watch out for on the internet is that if an app or a website asks you for something like credit card details or a phone number the information is not kept secret and is on the internet for everyone to see. A phone number or email address can also be used for target advetising because the companies can send you advertising. Target advertising is a very controversial thing and many people disagree with it but it will continue so, stay safe out there...
