How The Internet Can Read Your Mind
Even if you're a social media recluse, advanced software algorithms can glean a surprising amount of detail about your life.
Think you can hide your personal data by choosing not to reveal information online?
Even though most people on Facebook choose not to reveal their physical addresses, it's possible to infer the general location of the majority of users based on the few who do.
In a similar way, software can figure out who is likely to be your friend and what kind of personality you might have.
