How Much is Too Much? - when it comes to : Data Overload...

It is often forgotten in this argument that the current messages will remain and the takers for personalised data filters will receive messages more personalised to their to their lifestyles in addition to the messages already around them.

It is also not often said that the privacy of the individual will be put at risk as privacy laws become more lenient to accommodate what will eventually be common practice among advertises in the race to know their customers better. Finally the other unfortunate thing will be that others will know all about you based on the advertisements they see you receive when looking over your shoulder.

...Just a thought, and something well worth thinking about while waving goodbye to your privacy.
