Take for example Facebook. Everyone want to be liked, but what if a future employer checks out your wall and doesn't like what he sees? The job you've always dreamed of could go to someone else. It's all about money and Facebook and other users are "selling information about their users." Don't be fooled into thinking that everything you do in the privacy of your own home is really private. Voluntarily putting information about yourself on Facebook is one thing, but be forewarned, you are being watched.
Every site you visit hands out cookies and they aren't chocolate chip. Cookies track your activities and "over time trackers can develop a very accurate profile of an individual," one more accurate than you could ever imagine. Your smartphone can be even more revealing, "because a smartphone can serve as many devices at once—a cell phone, MP3 player, camera, radio, audio recorder, video recorder, and web browser." Talk about transparency! By using one, you can't hide from anyone, including the law!
In this book you'll be able to take a close look at just how accurately companies can find out about you by profiling. It's way too revealing and scary. Speaking of revealing, don't count on any picture you've posted to remain private. Jennifer Lawrence, Hunger Games star, can vouch for that. Those nude picture she posted aren't private anymore! Simply said, "the web is an open book" and you are in its pages, like it or no. You'll learn just how open it is from what kind of information trail you are leaving to who is taking a look at it, including the government.
This is an excellent overview of the lack of online privacy all young people should read. Of course many young people are blissfully unaware of the consequences of their online activities. This book just could be a wake up call for many. The book is very well-written and covers everything from social media to privacy laws and the role of government surveillance in our lives. It lets teens know that yes, Big Brother is watching and does take note of our digital footprint. This would be an excellent read and discuss book for the homeschool or classroom setting. Very impressive, very important information for 'tweens and teens. In the back of the book is an index, a glossary, expansive source notes, a selected bibliography, and additional recommended book, film, and website resources to explore.
