    No. But it's too late. Another useless discussion.

    Perhaps but that is no reason to not make it as difficult as possible for them to continue acquiring it.

    where were all those privacy rights "freedom fighters" decades ago when tech giants started data mining? nowhere; they were probably amazed by those services and surely used them...today it is trendy to bash them...attention seekers...

    Only govs can stop data mining, and since most are in bed with those giants or even do the same, it will not change much, maybe some little rules and small fines to satisfy the masses, and that is it.

    Correct. 99% under 30yo couldn't care less.

    Indeed. And, you can bet they are just biding their time, since they know the "masses", will eventually lose interest. It's only when there is a concerted-unified, and unrelenting effort to demand change by many people that anything ever will change.

    Cheers!
