#InCaseYouMissedIt: #SeenOnAWallNearYou – A #Comment on #Privacy – and those Apps’s T.O.S’s

Is this about the privacy thing?

Again… want privacy? Step away from the Keyboard. (SM)

… and no, I don’t use any of these apps; I use those who are a tad bit more ‘creative’ – yet, I’m pretty sure, if I took the time to read the T.O.S., it’s all pretty much a bunch of legalese saying “you opted in, you’re ours” – which is what I gather from above.

The price of Freeware, perhaps? I’m glad to pay for it; it’s quid-pro-quo: I get a free app, they get to know about me – or at least what I’ve decided to post it’s ‘me’ (meaning, we still control the conversation, Facebook’s pestering for ‘additional profile information’ notwithstanding)

… now… would there ever be real ‘privacy’ on the Web?

Maybe if you’re a real large organization, whose resources – and compliance factors – allow it and require it? a shred of it; yet again, it’s privacy TILTED for the sake of the organization’s goals and needs  – NEVER the users.

So what do I do?

“write as though anything online may end up on the front page of The New York Times” (G.E. HR Orientation Video, 2005)

Otherwise?

Keep your noses clean – and read up what Nancy posts!
