“My topic is ‘tracking and surveillance aka “who’s watching from the shadows and making a TON of money doing so…?” Which seems particularly relevant in context of the upcoming Net Privacy vote. I took a series of screen shots using Disconnect and Ghostery on Chrome (Ghostery blocks trackers, Disconnect blocks and also visualizes the set of companies watching). While drinking my morning coffee, I browsed as I might do on any normal day. A little news reading, social media, fact checking on Snopes, going to the bank, etc.
I’m attaching the screen shots.
- “U.S. Senate Votes to Repeal Obama-Era Internet Privacy Rules,” Alina Selyukh
- “How Online Tracking Companies Know Most of What You do Online (and what social networks are doing to help them),” Peter Eckersley
- “Senate Votes to kill privacy rules meant to protect people’s senstive data from their internet providers,” Jim Puzzanghera
