Re: A benefit of a club web site

Thank goodness I'm not now, nor have I ever been on Facebook. Of course, I have would have nothing to worry about so long as they didn't know my dog Penny's name or my birthday spelled backwards (yadhtrib ym).

Welcome to Atlanta, where windsport dreams come true.

Re: A benefit of a club web site

This is a really unsettling article about how two friends getting together for pizza and a movie create a treasure trove of data for companies like Facebook, Google, the pizza company, Amazon, Apple, etc. I think the message is use as few modern conveniences as possible. Old land line phones may come back in style.

Re: A benefit of a club web site

Ever wonder how it is that you get political ads designed specially tailored for you. Here's an article about how they do it. In GA anybody with $250 can buy voter records from the Secretary of State. Facebook, and others will sell them all kinds of data about you so they can figure out what kind of voter you might be and design an ad that hits all your hot buttons.....

Thanks for the article. The EU passed legislation regulating data collected without a user's permission and Apple limits data collection, but this article makes clear how much personal information is collected without our knowledge.
