I actually think as technology becomes more integrated with everyday life, less people will care about their privacy or data being sold. Convenience and access to the constant validation the internet can provide takes precedence, especially with younger people, who have known nothing else. I don’t underestimate the power of apathy or blissful ignorance. A few months ago had a conversation with a 26 yr old acquaintance of mine at the bar about selling data he was all for it! “So, if it makes my life easier, what do I care? So they can send me stuff I might want? Go for it.”
The Internet of Sh*t Twitter is hilarious.
