Unit 3: Task 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.

Location settings are commonly switched on a persons device including mobile phones, tablets and laptops, which could be easily traced. This includes on applications such as Maps, Weather, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter. For example, Maps provides users with information about the time and distance they are from places such as their home or workplace. Snapchat also has a setting where you can allow your ‘friends’ to view your exact location when you are active on the app.

Wifi and bluetooth are other ways that personal information, including a persons location, can be extracted through technology.
