Marketers are watching you. Cool?

 I had to write today about Acxiom’s new website www.aboutthedata.com.  For those who aren’t aware or just haven’t thought about it much lately, all that data you put on your social networks, made available to your mortgage company, all your purchase behavior on credit cards or data available through government is used by a Marketer somewhere at some time to sell you some thing.     489 more words

fathymit reblogged this on Fathym It and commented:

We were discussing ello as a team a bit, passing around invites and musing on how the ad-free, users-as-product-free manifesto could possibly translate into real-world dollar$, a business-model conundrum we ourselves have tangled with in the past. One of the Fathym crew observed that people just don't seem interested in paying for their privacy. Yet. We think a lot about privacy. It's uniquely important to all of us as individuals and of course, as a company. A move like this that appears to go against current start-up and business trends raises questions, such as, have we reached a point of being willing to pay for an ad-free garden of social Eden? What will it take for more people to appreciate the value placed on the data about their personal lives enough to want to take it back? What are the real-world social implications of connectivity that has to be bought in currency other than data? Could there possibly be enough people willing to pay for ad-free social media that would ease the fears that ello won't or won't be able to remain true to the values laid out in it's manifesto? We're inspired by ello's manifesto. It has a strong vision that addresses similar themes to Fathym's core philosophy: engagement and empowerment, connection and collaboration. We'll be watching their space closely.
