Unit 3, Question 1.


  1. We have shared a few examples of how information can be extracted from data (such as in your images). What are other ways humans can leave traces of information with the use of technologies? Share an example or examples with the community.

There are many ways information can be extracted from data particularly peoples location (leaving traces). many stem from social media apps. Here are some examples of ways people can leave traces of information when using technology:

  1. Location on social media: Snapchat has a maps where you have a choice of leaving it on or not, however, people can constantly see when you are active and where you are located. Facebook, Instagram, and other apps also provide a time and a location of posts. They also provides a note of when people opened their messages.
  2. Maps: Maps on your phone provide you a time and distance of how far away ‘home’ or ‘work’ is, without manually stating.
