Unit 3 – Task 1


There are so many ways that technology extracts information from the data we provide.  Many websites ask you to accept “Cookies”, which track your web activity and gathers information on your likes and interests.  The information we provide freely to social media (e.g.: relationship status) can also be used to determine what content we may be more interested in and target us with advertising.  For example, when I changed my relationship status to “engaged”, my newsfeed was flooded with wedding-related advertisements and content.
