Knowledge is power..over people! that's why our gov (& probably not the only gov) is paying FB, GOOG, ATT, etc to sell them their cust or user's data; companies themselves are bearing fruit of having & accumulating this info. What is alarming is the number of these entities that collect these data which can be abused & misused by crooks embedded in all these orgs particularly the gov. A day is not passes that we don't hear about corruption and abuse of power by US Gov officials (including congress & their cronies), State Gov's, police forces, armed forces, etc etc. Human nature is corruptible to begin with & the level corruption increases by many folds as they are more powerful or wealthier. I am ashamed of being a human.

Many of us, often unknowingly, offer a lot of personal information which will inevitably be available and shared with public without our explicit consent.
