The privacy paradox: why do people keep using tech firms that abuse their data? | John Naughton

Despite privacy scandals, Facebook is more profitable than ever – journalists must use the tools of tech to understand whyA dark shadow looms over our networked world. It’s called the “privacy paradox”. The main commercial engine of this world involves erosion of, and intrusions upon, our privacy. Whenever researchers, opinion pollsters and other busybodies ask people if they value their privacy, they invariably respond with a resounding “yes”. The paradox arises from the fact that they neverthe...

Facebook sucks for privacy, but how good are advertisers at targeting me?

To find out, I decided to conduct an informal and, admittedly, subjective data analysis of the companies that are using my personal information to g...

In other things I (or others) have written about the publishing industry, you’ve probably heard about the so-called “pivot to video....
