@Ariella   That is interesting that the marketers you surveyed would feel this way about location data.  So they are not really that interested in where you are spending time while in an establishment ?

I personally don't believe there is much value in it either.

@kq4ym what's surprising is that some of those who collect that location data are not as interested in it as you might think. I was involved in a project that surveyed marketers, and most said that identifying location was not a major benefit of using mobile technology from their point of view.

The scary part for most people I would guess is not knowing exactly what their data is used for or may be use for. Given a notification that your location has been shared hundreds of times daily is pretty frightening just because we never thought that anyone would be that interested in that type of data. In the end, people are adapting and probably for the benefit ultimately of both the consumer and the data collectors.

Do you think that many people see it that way? I see more people pulling back because they are afraid that data will be stolen rather than putting pressure on companies to protect the data that they are collecting.

I agree the data leaks have been good for at least that - knowledge.

 I've wondered the same thing about chain stores when I've tried to find the nearest store. Increasingly they insist that I download their app (don't want it) or that I turn on location services. All I really want to do is enter a zip code or a town name and see where the store is. The mindset: "We don't want your money unless you give us information too"


 

Several times we've encountered businesses (and even government agencies) that don't want to answer simple generic questions unless you reveal some personal information, including name and phone number. This seems an outrageous demand for private information. But one way or another, I suspect anonymity, like privacy, is being toasted to incineration.

@Pierre, I think this is one of the good things about the data leaks that hit the news every few months.  People are starting to realize how much information is being collected and the damage it can do if it is lost.  Eventually they start to wonder why someone has so much data on them and what they are doing with it in the first place.

@Jamescon, yes the tracking device is in our pocket by paying for it and putting it there. How ironic! Talking about unintended consequences.

@Rbaz. I remember when people objected to traffic cameras being installed because people thought that the cameras could be used to track them. Well, yes, they can. But nobody thought that the key tracking device was sitting in their pocket.

@Jamescon, to be seen/viewed occasionally is to be expected, but continual and constant exposure to monitoring is beyond uncomfortable. None of us is flawless, and so being in a fishbowl is restrictive and cruel.
