Can this inadvertent profiling then be turned against the corporate brand in the future?

Big corporate behemoths tend to be late adopters in innovative technology. For decades, the website became the main Internet presence for any conservative large corporation interested in reaching customers. In the last…

Third party surveillance on the public is a topic that has been hotly discussed in recent years, particularly after the Edward Snowden incident. The NSA states that they ONLY monitor the portion of your information called metadata. Thus, they imply that metadata is only a small chunk of your information. Let’s study this play on words when the POTUS says “we don’t listen to your phone conversations”.
