    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!

    We’re giving away more personal data than ever, despite growing risks

    "We moaned about it in times past and we said, 'People don't care about privacy.' ... Now people care about it," Callas told a gathering of the Cloud Security Alliance. "Now they are worrying about it, and when they see these awful news stories, it helps fuel the change."

    That pretty much sums it all. There were signs. There were people warning about it. You chose to ignore the warnings and
    label the messengers as tin foil hat etc..

    So don't come to say that nobody warned you.

    If you want someone to blame just take a look into a mirror.

    They warned about Echelon long time ago. Nobody believed untill past-Snowden document proved it's existence.
    They warned about NSA and people made jokes of "No Such Agency"
    They warned several other things but you chose to ignore.

    It must be pretty depressing to be wrong so many times?

    If ownership & management don't do years in prison anything else is whipping them with a wet noodle.
