I know this is against the general sentiment but I don't care much what these corporations know about me; we all know we're just ad clickers and numbers in their big data machines. I'm more afraid of who can see the data that's peronally about me, whether it be due to mishap (data brach) or lack of control (see: IG, Facebook tagging). Should any of that get out, it would be devastating if it were put up on shady websites that allow you to look up the data of breached inviduals via only a name or username.

Big Tech knows all about you personally, including your name, address, phone number, locations you've been to, people you've met, things you've bought or considered buying. And guess what: they will sell it to anyone who pays enough.
