Government, heal thyself.
I am bemused by the notion that the same people who are concerned with government snoops collecting information on them also want the same government to regulate advertisers' information collection.

Impact Starting
I think we're starting to see the impact, at least among some users who are now less prone to posting personal comments on social media than in prior years.

That said, while we can control the amount of info we share online -- photos, comments, likes, who sees those posts, and geographical tagging -- it's almost impossible often to figure out what we're signing away on ToS; when and how those ToS change; how to get out off ToS; what happens to our data once we leave a site/company, and whether/how companies truly are deidentifying/anonymizing data when they say they are.
