There’s truly no loss of privacy
The world knows about gegevens mining — it’s no timid secret. Almost everyone knows what it’s about and a loterijlot of people hate it — but people use the services that mine their gegevens nonetheless.
If you do not know how this works, check out this quick informatie graphic I made:
You use a free service (like Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), and they collect information about you. The kleuter of things you search for, posts you like, etc. They basically make a collection of your interests and sell it to advertisers. The advertisers then go shopping for a ideal candidate to showcase their advertisement to.
And for the most part, people are fine with it. But then comes the privacy argument, and how people are losing their privacy (more on this below), yada, yada, yada.
But then they proceed to use those services anyway
But this article is not about the hypocritical ways of people. There’s slew of time for that zometeen.
No, this article will talk about why gegevens mining isn’t spil bad spil everyone makes it to be. How it’s actually good.

Gegevens mining is what makes thesis companies money. That’s why more users = more profit. The fact is, if Google didn’t mine your gegevens, they would have to charge you for using their search engine. Imagine that — every time you want to search something, instead of just whipping out your phone, typing it, and hitting inject, you’d have to make a payment. A puny one most likely, but a payment nonetheless. Books would be back ter business!
My friend wasgoed looking for flight tickets to Singapore. The next day, he gets an email entailing some pretty good deals for the same (he did not sign up anywhere). He ended up booking thesis.
And that could apply to any screenplay. You may not get an email, you may see an advert for the product you want.
Say you’ve got Facebook open while you’re browsing Amazon for fresh boots. You switch overheen to Facebook for a uur, and see an ad for a pair of ideal sneakers. You instantly click on it and go through with the order. Time and effort saved!
When most people think of gegevens mining, they think of someone ter some cubicle somewhere, hunched overheen a pc, combing through all your gegevens.
That’s not what happens. It’s truly just an algorithm doing it all. Sure the companies could go and check out this gegevens if they indeed wished to, but why would they? What motive would they have to go searching through your browser history?
