While most of us at some stage may have had our suspicions about the big companies such as Facebook and Google collecting out data and using our information, what we didn't realize was that it goes so much deeper than just using it for advertising purposes.
Irish IT expert Dylan Curran recently began a Twitter thread, which has now gone viral, with many users now extremely worried about the extent to which Facebook and Google really are spying on us. The data collected is stored into archives, and it ranges from sent and received messages, login and usage locations, and even non-Facebook-related text and phone conversations. Google goes even further - they keep track of nearly any single thing you can think of, and continues to store it even AFTER you have deleted it.
So while these things are provided 'free of charge', are they really worth the potential price that we are paying?
