Who knows you better?

Have you ever thought who you are?…I mean: who are you online. What kind of reputation you have online? Have you tried to google yourself? How many times? what did you find?

Recent research highlighted that social media, nowadays, considered the first place your future employer is looking to find out who you are. In that sense, are you a party animal? opps that nasty picture from Jason’s Birthday Party does not look great…Do you volunteer? How do you spend your free time? Believe it or not, Google might know stuff about you more than your mother knows.. Google knows your habits, food preferences, your usual routes, your favorites sport, and so forth.
The other day, our friends, older couple who belongs to the tech immigration generation, told me in a proud that they leave their mobile phone in the living room when they go to sleep. Believing that this is how they have a control over the apps’ monitorings of their lifestyle. I did not want to further discuss: what the apps would be interested in the monitor while they are sleeping? meanwhile, the mobile phone is monitoring your online research habits all day (which that is the most important things for marketing researches purposes. ie. They want to figure a way to sell you more stuff and how to sell you these stuff in the first place). I just asked quietly: No need, because the credit cards company already know everything about you: what to eat, where you eat, where you travel, what do you buy? are you a careful spender? are you married? Are you cheating on your wife?
I just remembered this ad: what is in your wallet? Nowadays there is no need to ask you. They know more than your spouse do…. mmmm, Maybe I should ask them about my husband’s spending habits ..
