GIF Post: That’s us. That’s our data.


Last week in my digital literacy class, we spoke about our data being the price we pay for “free” use of the internet. I thought this gif (created via imgflip) from Adam Ruins Everything was extremely appropriate. Notice the Facebook and Google logos on the two men in glasses. Like the guy on the table, we too are having our data sucked right out of us by these large tech companies and having various forms of ads targeted straight to us shoved right back in. We’re the product now.

How scary is that? Very.
