Unit 3: Q1

  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 humans can leave their ‘digital footprint’ while using technology. One of those ways is with allowing certain apps or internet sites use ‘cookies’ while using them. Cookies allow sites and apps to track the information you are looking at and that information can be used to target you with certain ads and products that marketing companies believe you would be interested in based on the previous things you have done and looked at.
