Google, Facebook, Apple, and other big tech companies are all really fascinated by you. So much so they are collecting your information. This new data-sharing is a bit discomforting to me, seeing as they own all our info.
I couldn’t help but relate this problem to everyone’s sassy Mean Girl, Regina George.
If you’ve never seen Mean Girls, she is essentially the meanest mean girl in your high school you can imagine. You know, the really pretty one that knows how to manipulate.

And here’s why this agreement is just like Regina George...

They use tools like web search history (gossip) and social-media profiles (digging for information) to learn more about you.

They didn’t just hear it through the grapevine though. They have things locked down an confirmed.

And they are sharing it with their inner circle. You know, their groupies.

They share that information with the U.S. Government. How fun!

They keep it hidden so you can never seen it or know what they know about you.

They keep this data far away from real people, in safe and secure servers. So they can target you better with advertisements.

Even when people get angry about it, they refuse to admit they did anything wrong.

The EU is pretty upset about the fact they are sharing their citizens information, as it breaks their privacy laws. And although the EU denied this sharing, the tech companies are just like: well, it is an American platform.

It’s not until we set up privacy standard in our own country that we are able to keep our privacy.

Just like how we need to keep things safe from Regina George. Because she’s really kinda scary...

Nothing is safe, sacred, hidden, or out of the government's reach. nothing.
@nicolejb isn't that way more scarier?!?
Each one of us has a Cady Heron in us lol @nicolejb
Regina will have her but if you privacy was taken from a bitch like Regina then they don't know who they think they are cause every one has a secret
Ah Regina George haha that's good. I started noticing the ads a couple years ago being related to exactly what I've been searching or even just talking (typing) about. At first I thought maybe it was just a coincidence but eventually I realized hmmm something isnt right here. Though, It's not that surprising especially since the government uses/munipulates social situations/environments with the logic "this is for you/America" yeaaaa okay sure it is. I feel so safe and secure with these ads while you stalk my shit. Thanks so much.
