Is Our Privacy Really Protected?

In the article “Letting Down Our Gaurd With Web Privacy” the author, Somini, explains how we so readily enter our personal data and information in exchange for access to a new social media platform but are we really paying attention to the fine print? Privacy is a big debate today and perhaps it is our own fault for allowing companies access to our personal data.

Another article I found interesting relating to our online privacy was “Just How Private Is Your Personal Information Online?” where Tyler Becker explains how unknowingly we put private information of ourselves online. Applications we use every day, like Google Maps, stores data, like our home address, and if the wrong person has access to it he or she can figure out much more than just a house number.
