honestly, i don’t care that facebook tracks me

    But FB used our data to fuck with the Trump election and used that data to influence swing voters etc? the whole Cambridge Analytica scandal resulted in a lot of harm done to the LGBTQ community, abortion rights, everything else. You're right about Google… directly. But indirectly they are likely selling our data to ones that DO do harm with our data. And they probably sell it to China, too, which IS dangerous, especially for CCP dissidents and protestors. These companies do not stop at tracking. People tape their webcams and cameras for a reason–even Zuckerberg tapes his cam. I've seen even tech experts refuse to use TVs with internet bc they think they may be recorded (which can be a concern if they're doing intimacy stuff, y'kno). This stuff is most dangerous in the hands of Russia and China because they DO use this shit to fuck with our elections, other things related to positions in office, track down dissidents and disappear people. As a Chinese diaspora, please listen to me and please don't spread dangerous rhetoric letting people be comfortable with this kinda thing.

    edit: I never thought it was a literal spreadsheet etc. That people have already documented FB letting people influence voters in such a malicious way is far from bad enough. And I'm sure the CCP and Tencent and wrangle even more information out to abuse.
    Framing this kind of "data collection" as having been around for thousands of years is disingenuous. The scale is so completely different and can be manipulated on such a large scale, they cannot be compared to next-door stonemasonry.

    I don't care if they're collect my data. But I do care if their product are getting worst.
    After I see many illegal or scam ads and suggestion post that I never wanted to see, I deleted Facebook app from my phone.
    Few years since I didn't use Facebook everyday like an addicted. Just few time a month on web. No longer than 5 minutes per session.
    I feel really good.

    Your Laptop Ads are good?
    I got either 5k SUPER Laptops OR 100 Supercheap Laptops.

    This is the least educated, most unhinged, and factually inaccurate thing I've ever heard.

    Ya tbh I DON'T CARE

    Your music selection suck again. The first half of the video had music that sounds like a twirl mess and very distracting. Please help because good and powerful music in your video helps me concentrate on your content.

    Everything I type on YouTube. Walmart App. Amazon App they start showing me Ads. Even texting and saying I need a raincoat to go walking. Then raincoats show up on Google Ads. That’s crazy.

  • @SumKnight-iw4rw on February 22, 2024

    Google sells androids and we have to deep search help with iPhones. I head to YouTube. Half the crap on Google is wrong.

  • @KazrBrekker on February 22, 2024

    Without data collection these companies would resort to the subscription based business model. You pay to Google to search for stuff on your behalf, you pay a subscription to chat with your friends like you used to for SMS. Pros would be – Instead of wasting time on junk people would be conscious about which services they use and how much this would help not only with screen addiction but also not take interent and interent based stuff for granted. We value things more subconsciously when we pay for it. Apple is a big example for this.

    There would also be no data brokers and less shady business practices.

    But on the other hand, internet adoption would be slow and internet would not be as big of a global phenomenon as it is now nor there would be Tech Giants.

    The "ads are spot on" segment lost me completely. For me its always shit. For example, I look at gpus for a few days, then I stop and next day I go to a delivery company site a few times. A reasonable human would probably reason that I bought a gpu and got it delivered, a reasonable human would then realize I wont buy a new gpu for some time now, but might buy other pc accessories so I should probably be shown stuff like drives, keyboards, mice, monitors and so on. But no, google will continue to show me gpus for the next month.

    Even worse, after I was building a pc, so I was looking for cpus, mobos, gpus, memory and stuff, then a case, fans and such. A reasonable human would reason I want to build a pc. A reasonable human would show me ads of components. But no, google decided to start showing me already build computers with worse components than I was looking for, and for a higher price. This is not "spot on", this is showing the exact opposite of what I am looking for. (this was 2 years ago)

    The only place where I see the "ads" perform reasonably well is the "your match" feature in google maps when it comes to food. But its not really an add…

    I miss being the product now everything has a subscription T.T

    The only reason is care about my google tracking me is because I can flex it to my friends .

    Surveillance cameras. There’s even more in the west. Your mobile, TV, computer, laptop, door bell… it’s all a surveillance camera in the western ‘deep state’ hands.

    13:27 These examples are not good. You still can collect this data without actually collecting this data. I mean location is something that you can do based on IP or even on GPS but google don't need to store this data in any way. Credit card data can be stored in password managers. BUT all these informations still can be stored in encrypted form on their servers and then unencrypted on your device locally so they are effectively not storing any meaningful data.

    I can understand ads argument. But when it comes to my own opinion, I think that my brain basically learned to don't look at ads or scroll through them automatically. I mean I stil sometimes notice what ad is about but most of the time I just "skip" the parts of website that are showing me them. I few times clicked on ads but it I don't remember any real situation that I had any benefits from that, and I only remember one ad that have any sort of impact on me (and by that I mean that I thought "It is cool idea", btw. that was some sort of open board game system that was made out of hexagonal pieces). But I mean, don't get my words too serious because If I have a choice then I actually most of the time choose to not consent to data collection so maybe that is all because ads were not targeted at me.

    Most people just assume that everyone has access to your data, and while that's not the case, it's still good for headlines i guess.

    9:38 i disagree with the statement that governments are behind the curve in technology. I concede systems that the IRS and SSA are ancient mainframes. But when we talk about the US military, NASA, intelligence (NSA/CIA) they have access to tech decades ahead of what is currently marketed for consumers. In such fields the government is a huge driver of research and innovation, simply due to the incredible amount of resources they have access to
