#67, watch those who are monetizing their watching from the shadows

This #100hardtruth was shared with me by my friend, the feminist scholar, network weaver, and digitrix,  Jacqueline Wernimont:
“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.
