What are the answers? What kinds of things should go into a privacy bill of rights? This book doesn’t have those answers. However, there are at least two things that I would like to convince people of.
One: you should have the ability to make a profit from your data when it’s collected and put to commercial use.
Two: Terms of Service contracts should be explicit and clear about who is getting your data, what they’re going to do with it, and who the data is going to be shared with. In this episode, I’ll talk more about those two points.
Highlights of this episode include:
- Companies who collect and sell your data make a profit. Why shouldn’t you be included in that?
- You should have the ability to pay social media sites for an ad-free experience
- Why you don’t really have a choice when it comes to Terms of Service contracts
- Terms of Service that require you to agree to convoluted terms to use their services are a form of bullying
- Readers who text the word “sheetrock” to BJ will get a free PDF of his last book, Social Media is Bullshit
