You should notice the abstraction from raw details and “metadata” gatherable info.
This is on purpose. You dont realize it, but skynet is operational right now(in a different aspect) in china.
M$FT, and several other IT firms have deeply invested(now possibly divesting as "the splinterNET") into this "overwatch" of citizens.
Everything you post or associate with your identity, online or off, is now tracked.
LARGE CORPORATIONS are contributing to this. Its called "Operation Golden Shield".
"Shield" from what I wonder...
Use COVID19 to your advantage- camera face tracker software is thrown off by wearing a mask. update posts- to include images of you wearing one. Demand (thru attorneys generals) that ALL bureaus- including "ID verify companies" such as REALPAGE (AND lexus nexis) PURGE ALL DATA collected about you. This may cause temporary setbacks- refusal to release credit numbers refusal to lend to you based on the "lack of data", which was never really deleted You can opt for "anything beyond the past two years" -but this data was always collected unlawfully, and without your consent. Some companies refuse outright to STOP SHARING your data.
Facebooks algorithm is extremely scary.
It scans screenshots that you upload for text, and any text in the image(or video) automatically tags the content as belonging to "whatever the text was about".
If you screenshotted an image of an open amazon tab in your browser-
it associates the image with amazon, even if its entirely unrelated--
just because you had an open tab of amazon website.
I have worked alongside federal agencies' agents during my time in service,
but if Facebook and Twitter can do this, you CAN BET other FEDERAL AGENCIES ALSO DO THIS.
The AIs are dumb now...but they could be smart soon enough if we are not careful.
The ASICs and FPGAs and GP CPUs combined are starting to combine into something extremely powerful -and very fast.
Keep in mind, public records from buying a house, filing for bankruptcy-
and- **this** data collection- are what others can also use against you.
Anyone can pay someone else $50 to investigate your "files"..look at your online identity... and know more about you- -than you realize.
