Are we becoming a nation or a society that is devaluing certain aspects of online privacy? As more and more of our lives become intertwined with online networks we become desensitized as to what is private and what is not. Take for example the liberties or assumptions that Live-Hive would like with your personal information.
- Manage your contacts
- Manage your calendars
- View basic information about your account
- View and manage any of your documents and files in Google Drive
- View your email address
- Perform these operations when I’m not using the application
What is private? What is personal? What is sharable? Depending on what your beliefs are, the bar for leveraging the usage of a service against what is indeed your personal IP and private data has either been lowered or raised.
Some of you won’t care, others might walk away and still others will click yes like they do a EULA and be done with it. None of us care until it directly affects and impacts us. That’s sad.
