Social Media Data Collection

[Caption] Do you worry about how much information companies collect on you through your social media accounts? Yes, I do. Because, ah, with social media, I mean, I’m into IT, I understand how it works. There’s a server somewhere, and someone’s got access to it. Mmm, not really. I don’t really put much out. I’ve thought about it before but… um…I don’t really mind Yeah, it is quite worrying. Like you look on a page – have you noticed that? And then it keeps on popping up, like, after you go back Sometimes. I’ve never seen, like, any company so far that knows, like, a big extent about me but I would doubt they would be letting me know what they know about me Sometimes but I can’t say it keeps me up at night or anything I guess I haven’t really thought about it. I don’t really care. To be honest, I don’t care. I do. I do actually. I don’t. I don’t at all. I’m like, they’re just, they’re going to market to you anyway, so why not use the information to get better products. Yeah I do. Erm, it’s pretty worrying. I dunno. Sometimes. Like, it is kinda scary how all the ads that pop up, suit you. But, it doesn’t…like, I don’t really think about it that much. Oh definitely, yeah. It’s a little scary. I don’t worry too much about it, no. A little from time to time. Generally, not too much. But with the changing laws and stuff nowadays with it, there is that slight concern, the whole kinda Big Brother thing that’s coming about. Yes Yes, definitely. Yes I think they have too much and how they can access it, it’s scary. Definitely. I try to, um, keep an eye on, sort of like, the privacy agreements and try and opt out of ad tracking and stuff like that but it’s, it’s quite hard, as an individual, to keep on top of that sort of stuff and a lot of people just, um, don’t take that into account I don’t think we really appreciate how much it is tailored for us, everything that we see. And it’s quite easy to just ignore all that but, it is definitely there and it’s running in the background and it is quite scary when you don’t know how far that information can go.
