Does the title seems to annoy you, just because I am about to discover what you surfed all night and day, what were you interest on, well I know you could be hiding yourself behind a firewall still I could predict who you are.
The saying goes like this “Show me your friends, I will tell you are?” sorry folks, the title was rhyming
What I am talking about is the social tagging which you have been doing all the days/nights/months/years.
How come did we change all of a sudden?
There were few thieves, now there are plenty?
Search engines , banking or service based sites were the ones we allowed to sniff. Now it is everyone who could smell others (bad odour, refreshing smell). All you need is hacker and few beers and it could be all yours.
few sites which were only tracking you and now it is the whole community know what you are up too.
I am not blaming the social tagging, I do tag I do blog, just a thought
Why google is alone able to get in to all the business what they want?
Knowledge is power my friend
Just a log in is enough to track
- every search you make
- every shopping ( checkout)
- every penny you make (ad words)
- and lot more (all it needs is imagination)
What happened to your privacy?
It just turned to business, most probably they didn’t sell what you did, but they gained the knowledge on your interest.
Imagine every search and all it takes a few queries on the database to know what is the current trend, well if you have this data you could also make millions
I don’t say don’t tag, don’t make it too public 😉 so remember it could be your worst nightmare
