@Simplyswapy I somewhat agree. I dislike how big companies, particularly social networks, can manipulate data and reinforce some behaviors in ways that may not be good for society (e.g., anything related to politics), but it is sometimes practical in terms of how easier it makes for searching results or curating things that I'm genuinely not interested in. Reading Snowden's book makes me more wary of the governments themselves than any private corp, as they can be more dangerous with the data they collect about us.
I Agree too.Govts have more ulterior motives but they collect our data from these firms themselves like the PRISM program of NSA.So I am equally wary of pvt firms & the govt.The govt I hold responsible more than the pvt firms, because that is an elected establishment to serve the people.They should have more intergity & responsibility to its citizens than pvt firms,pvt firms exist for profit.
