If you are browsing the Internet, as you currently are (unless you consume this content via RSS), you will be using a web browser, either in your mobile device or in your laptop/desktop. Most often that web browser has come with the operating system.
After all of this, what should one do? Well, I can't answer for what you can or should do, as it all depends on what you use today and what you do within those apps/services.
I shall be starting with defining what I would need fixed, as it always is easier to measure if I am reaching my goal if I actually have a goal.
In my previous post I highlighted how Facebook eerily seems to target advertising based on what you post, comment and like (do the "thumbs up", or "heart" etc). I also described an experience that made me feel like Facebook was listening through not only mine, but also a friends iPhone.
In a previous set of articles I wrote about how you can increase the security within your most used apps such as Facebook, Google, iCloud etc, to avoid getting hacked or having your account taken over by someone who shouldn't be posting as you, or have access to your personal details.
This is more of a follow-up post to the post where I outlined some alternatives to the big social media services, like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. As I obviously had to refresh my view on them, and have been testing them more now, these are some of my initial thoughts.
The last couple of weeks a story about Cambridge Analytica accessing Facebook data to ensure Brexit, Trump winning etc has been making the rounds. This has in turn led to lots of people killing off their Facebook accounts, often with an accompanying note saying "Facebook is unsafe, you can find me elsewhere like Twitter, Instagram, mail etc".
I found this as a Facebook post under "today a previous year" or whatever it is called. As my opinion on this hasn't changed, and it still is a problem, I figured I should publish the text here instead of having it locked in on Facebook.
