they want this information because information = money, money = power. thats the whole point. why do you think facebook is worth soo much money?
they knwo who you talk to, who you see, where you go, who you go with, where you log on regularly, they know your email addresses, they know your phone numbers. its all about cash,
but heres the kicker, no ones gives a damn, and the kids today think this is normal place, they have no problems with it being raised on facebook. eventually the internet will not be a place of dreams and wonder, it will be a living, breathing surveillance and advertising portal.edit on 12-9-2012 by gostr because: (no reason given)

Really dude?I feel sorry for you if you really believe that'll happen.It seems to me you have it in your mind that government controls everything(you're so wrong,it's sad). And even if it does..no one is going to force you to enter ANY info on the internet. Least of all your SSN. I realize this is ATS..but come on people use your damn brains

hey guys Ive been a long time reader of ATS but havent really gotten into posting anything yet. thought now was better than later so here it goes:
I've been noticing some recent internet activity that is a little concerning. for example Youtube asked me today if i wanted to use my "full name" on my profile. Why the hell would anyone want to disclose any personal info over the net? especially in light of the recent "innocence of muslims" video which was apparently uploaded by someone with a "false name" (shocker i know right). Even things like the Cloud and social networks are crossing boundaries of personal info. even things like how cookies allow sites to display ads relating to your interests. i dont really know what to make of all this but wanted to hear what you all had to say.
