Hi,

All of them actually. They all work together, buying and selling data. You are no longer anonymous on Internet. You leave tracks of who you are and what you do, everywhere. Your mail adress is linked with your phone number "for security reasons", thus leading to any other websites on which you leave your phone number.. That is to say many, many, many.

The whole system is working like that. Actually, I worked in a company that was against the use of such data. They were unable to compete with their direct competitors, they were always behind them. Just because such data today must be secured quickly to be optimally used by companies.

So I guess they are all a threat. And the fact that they all work all together is even more worrying!  Undecided

To me, GOOGLE on line services encompasses a lot more than what any one could imagine and spread all over every facet of life and covers every nooks and crannies of the world. This Global world of Google is somehow scary if we can put it that way.

I even wonder how really secure we are (our data) from these giant entities. As to security measure especially in FB, I think it's quite good but my concern is do they really not access our records in their database?

Yes, they are, the most important thing is many companies are trying to improve themselves such as Facebook has decided that mark will spend 2018 to improve the security and other stuff on Facebook, show that the number of fake sites and false advertisement decreases. It's true that many big internet companies keep all of our data from our daily life as they are trying to improve.

Those do not really bother me as much, yes facebook keeps track of everything you do but you can decide to not use facebook or twitter and they will have nothing on you or very little at most, the ones that bother me are ISP you have to use them to access the internet and they keep records of everything you do so they have a lot more info than facebook, Google and twitter all combined.

I think Facebook is the most evidently intrusive. They monitor all of your online activity pretty much and then shape your thoughts and such with targeted advertising. There will come a time in the future when the world decides it needs to take a step back from such intrusion in to their personal lives.

I am scared about Google. Facebook is something very optional, you don´t really need to use it at all. However, I find much more difficult not to use any Google service.

Why have you left Google out of this list? In terms of amount of data which has been stockpiled, I think Google is unparalleled. They probably know you better than you yourself do. It is not about being scared, but taking steps to safeguard your privacy.

facebook and twitter because the company often rejects illegal activities that are not at all in their favor.
such as free advertising from all internet actors, and inevitably soon they will close the way for users who do not pay.

You got it dude. I used to think about online shops to be dangerous since they take your credit card details but i forgot about facebook. Our privacy maybe hidden from the public but with facebook they know of course. Even single post if it violates their rules they are blocking it right away.

I think Facebook, Twitter and Youtube, because people can upload fake news and some videos that are not suitable for kids, they cannot stop also those fake accounts that spread malicious ads and comments.

From the three you mentioned, Twitter and Amazon ain’t much of a problem, but Facebook is. Facebook is the most intrusive, and worst part of it is that you have their app on your mobile device, it never closes (even if you try to ‘force stop' it) rather it stays on. I can’t tell the reason why they do that, but it’s very suspicious. Well, that one is not much of a problem… the most intrusive (whatever) is GOOGLE.

Google takes every information about you, monitors your location (even when you don’t want) and also monitors what you do on the web. Creepy right? Meehn, Google is worst that the others. And that’s why I don’t switch on my phone’s GPS (Location).

Some companies are some time not want to collect the crypto and in the case of bitcoin all the companies who understand the bitcoin importance they are willing to accept bitcoin but the some users of Facebook and the you tube channels are restricting bitcoin and this issue will be sort out  soon. The current demand of bitcoin shows the presence and importance of bitcoin It is good to know that which companies who are accepting bitcoin we have to buy from them.

it is very bad that the infrastructure for Bitcoin users is still not developed and even in some countries there are small changes, but not as I would like. But I think that everything depends on the users themselves and their progress in this area.

My point was that people will always be people. We all screw up and tend to follow the herd most of the time.

You completely glossed over the fact that such social media experiments show that it is indeed possible to target and manipulate particular demographics based on their social media/ net habits.

For example, Someone with access to all the google, twitter and facebook meta-data and the motivation and resources to mine it can easily divide people in groups as being favorable/ non-favorable to a particular candidate or proposal. They can then target the users accordingly to shape their opinion.
Denying that its always only "stupid" people who fall for such tactics is giving too much credit to your own thought process. A majority of people will change their opinion when bombarded with a particular ideology on their social feeds for a long enough time.


Have no doubt, people have been manipulated all along history, and everyday, is just human nature and nowadays is just the same thing but more scientific, digital and more acute.

While those are scary the biggest company of all which is the governments you should be probably more concerned about them. I wouldn't doubt if they had information on us at all times of the day, and they basically do due to cell phone and credit card tracking.

Nowadays that we're living on the "digital age", internet along with social networking sites, buying and selling sites and others have been part of our lives. It makes our lives easier, I think it wouldn't be scary if we use it responsibly. Do not overfeed all your personal data on a certain site, especially if it isn't needed. Be a responsible Internet user and think before you click.

I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the colourful monolith, all knowing uncle, the great cards dealer, advertising croupier etc. etc, google.
Latest days where quite saturated with news regarding this giant being able to record and store all our voice commands.
Check this out if you missed it somehow, it is always voluntary but enabled by default, so it is possible to "stop this service" but... service as a part of the android system is still there and running.
And how many other instances of our data collection (unfortunately still voluntary) are there? Most of googles services require us to have some sort of additional sensors enabled, I can only imagine, how much data they posses daily on one single individual. If this isn't scary, idk what is.

I am quite scared by the popularity of those voice devices. I am sure that Google and Amazon and whoever creates a personal assistant will not resist the temptation of using all that data.
