Are You Know Only To Your Friends and Family ?

Let me begin by asking a simple question. Who are the people you are known to?
Well, I would like to be known by my friends and family. Unless one isn't into fame industry/politics or related fields that require you to remain in limelight, most of you would answer the same. I would like to be known by the people that I want to be known by.

Easy said than done! Yes, with the advent of digitally 'connected world ' you are known to many. Today we have become business assets to data hungry marketing zombies. Most of us have unknowingly sold ourselves as a product in return for free services.

Your age, gender, location, the place that you recently visited, the product that you are looking for, the recent movie that you were discussing about etc. are to name a few. This list goes on and on.

The internet that was supposed to be open and bias free has become the playground for the marketing lobbies.
Ever wonder why one of that famous search engine puts one result at the top and the other at the bottom? In today's world term 'Most Relevant Search Result' has a slightly different or rather a tweaked meaning. Yes, they display the search result that's most relevant. Most relevant in terms of marketing, in terms of profit making.
We are being made to see what they want us to see. Making us read what they want us to read. Making us buy the things that they want us to buy. In simple words, we are in an era of digital slavery.

My aim is to protect/prevent you from falling victim to those big corporate businesses.
I want you to be aware of some tweaks, some default settings, some terms of agreements that you should do away with as soon as possible. Being born in a free society, like many of you I'm pained to see our privacy being compromised. We are humans and not products. No one has the right to use us without our consent. My data is mine and I should have the full control over it. I have not authorized to share it with anyone. No, I don't want those so called relevant search results, those relevant adds. I should be shown the unbiased information. The right to uncompromising information within the bounds of judicial system is my birth right. I'm human with real emotions and feelings. Not an asset to be crunched in as data in your algorithms.

In my next post I will show you the hidden settings in your smartphones that you should turn off right away. The settings which has been intentionally hidden deep under the umbrella of privacy.

Stay tuned.
