It just occurred to me that there is no such thing as #SurveillanceCapitalism, it's just #Capitalism doing what it's always done in different ways. I mean you can look at it as People Farming on the one hand. On the other, it's just companies like #Google and #Facebook getting free labor from us to create a product for Advertisers. As if this was the first time Capitalists have exploited people for their voluntary labor under false pretences. *cough* #MLMs *cough*

"There is no longer such a thing as individually 'opting out' of our privacy-compromised world."

#SurveillanceCapitalism allows companies to target the vulnerable.

"In 2017, the newspaper The Australian published an article, based on a leaked document from #Facebook, revealing that the company had told advertisers that it could predict when younger users, including teenagers, were feeling “insecure,” “worthless” or otherwise in need of a “confidence boost.” Facebook was apparently able to draw these inferences by monitoring photos, posts and other social media data."

Major Browsers to Prevent Disabling of Click Tracking Privacy Risk

Newer versions of Chrome, Safari, and Opera will no longer allow you to disable hyperlink auditing, which is a concern for those seeking maximum privacy. While some of these browsers previously allowed you to disable this feature, newer versions are going in the opposite direction.

@StephenJudge Oh me so shocked! Why factory farm act so bad? Factory farm our friend, no? Factory farm love us.

"When you’re logging in to a Starbucks account, booking an Airbnb or making a reservation on OpenTable, loads of information about you is crunched instantly into a single score, then evaluated along with other personal data..." #SurveillanceCapitalism

"If we do not fix our breaking world — and that must be our priority — technology will likely only hasten the demise of the human race. The context cannot be solved by technology alone; governments must take action. But most existing governments are equally incapable of sorting this out."

When browsers are made by advertising companies:

"With privacy and online tracking being such a large problem and major concern for many users, you would think that browser developers would give you the option to disable anything that could affect your privacy."
