Really what does Google and Facebook know about you? It is well known that large technology companies collect data. It's fashion, because all the information costs. Not alone of course.
Corporate algorithms collect all the information from your online ckick and build profiles. They then sell these profiles to advertising agencies, who can target your profile precisely with things that interest you.
One of the companies that follow this practice is Google, Google company that follows you when you are awake but also when you are asleep.
Now, however, Google has had to display the data it collects, as it has long been suspected of collecting too much data.
But what data are we talking about?
There's a page where you can find out what Google knows about you - and of course what it sells to advertising companies.
So if one day you wonder who you are, you will find it on this settings page.
Google knows you very well. For me he knows that I am between 35 and 64 years old. That I am interested in technology. He knows that I have my home, I am interested in computers, I read books, I like restaurants and food in general.
Google knows I have a car and other vehicles. Google saves all of your YouTube history so you know what you see and enjoy. He knows if you are a parent, a conservative, a progressive, a Christian or a Muslim, if you have depression or whatever.
Facebook knows a lot more about your personal life than you think. Due to the increasingly aggressive advertising policy of the company, Facebook can now monitors the entire web. The company compiles a list of personal information for each user that includes important life events and information of general interest.
Of course, all of this with your permission since you have agreed to the Terms of Service.
Facebook has published a new portal to update and educate its members in targeted advertising, as well as preferences in ad settings, trying to make the line that follows.
Portal tools reveal 98 personal data points that Facebook uses to target the ads on the page especially to you.
There are many obvious features Facebook knows about its users, such as whether you are married, if you have just returned from a holiday, or are about to have a baby. Most of this personal data is collected when you post something on Facebook or update your profiles.
But then there are some things that have not been voluntarily submitted, such as the number of credit cards you have, if you are an investor, what you invest, if there is balance on your credit card, if you use coupons, and whether it is likely move.
The Washington Post tried to collect all the information, which brings together the largest social network. Imagine the information below in the hands of advertisers. For those who doubt their worth, remember that Facebook built an 355 billion-dollar empire almost entirely from them.
