launch of Facebook Places, a location-based service that allows users to “check in” to a specific place or event and share that information with their friends. It also allows others to “tag” or check you in at a location, provided you are Facebook friends, and this has drawn fire from the ACLU and other privacy advocates.
SANTA FE USES RADIO FREQUENCY TRACKING BADGESPublished October 18, 2010 SANTA FE — Secondary students in the Santa Fe district are required to wear badges on campus that track their whereabouts using radio frequency identification technology.School officials issued the badges this fall to ensure student safety and achieve more accurate attendance reporting.Attendance rates haven’t been an issue in the district, but a reliable reporting system might allow Santa Fe to recover more state money from average daily attendance funding, district spokeswoman Patti Hanssard said. The monitoring system only tracks students on campus.…Since issuing the tracking badges in 2008, Spring has received a $194,000 increase in attendance funding, Hanssard said.
Social media will take your data and give other people access to it. Just assume that no matter how private you think it is, its going to find a way to someone else. there is no going back to the “simpler times” before Facebook and social networking. Every social, cultural, economic and political aspect of our lives, is affected and some would say dominated by digital connectivity.

Why aren’t we more upset? When we don't like it or don't want it, it's an invasion of privacy. When we like it or want it, it's the price we pay. We will readily forgo our privacy in exchange for convenient and useful services, particularly if they’re free. That’s a trade-off you make all the time on the Internet. Even if people were more conscious of how this information might be exploited, I doubt most would change their behavior. In a nutshell, ask anyone if they care about their privacy and almost 100% of them will say, yes, absolutely. But then ask them about what they do both online and offline on a daily basis and most of them will reveal a very different set of preferences or values when it comes to what “protecting privacy” would mean in practice. That’s because privacy is, as Harper notes, a highly subjective condition, and that’s true even in a micro sense. We’re constantly making privacy trade-offs on the fly. Every time we enter a contest, sign up for a shopper discount card, enter absurd amounts of personal info on social networking sites, and so on, we are making privacy trade-offs. Sometimes we think them through carefully; other times we don’t. But most of the time people will trade away their supposed “privacy rights” in for even the most trivial thing.The fact is that privacy is already really, really dead. Howard Lindzonnailed it the other day when he said “Equifax, Transunion, Capital One, American Express and their cousins raped our privacy,” Everything we do, everything we buy, everywhere we go is tracked and sitting in a database somewhere. Our location via our phone, or our car GPS. Our credit card transactions. Everything. Honestly, a picture of you taking a bong hit in college is mice nuts compared to the mountain of data that is gathered and exploited about every single one of us every single day. You just don’t really see that other stuff because those companies don’t like to talk about the data their gathering.
Blippy is a service that lets users publish everything they buy with their credit cards.Crazy right? Who’d want to do that? Well, apparently a lot do. The company has let in 2,500 people so far. Those 2,500 people are publishing $200,000 worth of purchases a day to their friends. It’s less than a month old and they’ve tracked $3.8 million in transactions already, with an average transaction size of $46.And more than 10,000 people are on the waiting list to get an account and gladly share their consumption behavior with the world.
Do you like somebody and want to know when they get dumped or have dumped the person you despise for being with the person you’d rather be holding or held by? The whole point of stalking is that it’s fairly anonymous and most people who have or develop that tendency don’t always tell their closest friends about it.
Some viewers of Gilligan’s Island apparently took the show seriously in the 1960s. The U.S. Coast Guard received several telegrams from concerned citizens asking why they didn’t rescue the Minnow’s crew.This has been an excellent week. I have received four or five emails from London and Africa announcing that I have been selected to receive, from each of them, sums in eXcess of ten million dollars The quite remarkable fact seems to be that one fellow’s plane crash, another’s unexpected demise—apparently run over by a herd of elephants— a third’s cruel wife, have all resulted in me being just the right person on the planet to receive millions of dollars which was left in their estates. Not only that: Several lotteries have paid off this week as well, and, just like the poor African ministers who want to share their millions with me, the lottery companies are happy to send money as well. It seems all I have to do is let any one of these secret correspondents know a few details about my bank account and social security number and my life worries will be over.
Starting next week, Verizon will double the early-termination fee for smartphones......The phone is designed in such a way that you can almost never avoid getting $1.99 charge on the bill. Around the OK button on a typical flip phone are the up, down, left, right arrows. If you open the flip and accidentally press the up arrow key, you see that the phone starts to connect to the web. So you hit END right away. Well, too late. You will be charged $1.99 for that 0.02 kilobytes of data......Every month, the 87 million customers will accidentally hit that key a few times a month! That’s over $300 million per month in data revenue off a simple mistake!..
Web criminals are getting much more personal in their attacks, using social networking sites and other databases to make their story lines much more believable.Bryan Rutberg's daughter was among the first to notice something odd about her dad's Facebook page. At about 8 p.m. on Jan. 21, she ran into his bedroom and asked why he'd changed his status to: “BRYAN IS IN URGENT NEED OF HELP!!!“In Rutberg's case, criminals managed to steal his Facebook login password, steal his Facebook identity, and change his page to make it appear he was in trouble. Next, the criminals sent e-mails to dozens of friends, begging them for help.

“Do Not Track” Legislation<br />“But there’s good news. From what I have been reading it seems that even if this legislation passes most people won’t go through the trouble of adding themselves to the list. Why is this you might ask? Because most Americans are not that concerned about being tracked on the Internet. So, all in all this legislation is not going to affect online marketers and SEOs in any significant way.. ”<br />
