In my opinion, an article by Jessica Guynn in the USA Today web site should be required reading for everyone who ever uses the Internet:
“Survey after survey shows we don’t like having our sensitive personal information collected, monitored and tracked whenever we share with friends on social media, shop online or use our mobile devices.
“Yet we hand over much of this information willingly, whether to Facebook and Instagram, Google and Amazon or to dozens of mobile apps.
“With few laws or regulations protecting consumers, the only way to take back our online privacy is to do something that doesn’t come naturally in our share-all world: Withhold as much personal information as possible and, when we can’t, use an alias and fake credentials.”
