These apps are stealing your most private data and it should be a crime

Just how angry are people really? My guess is not very.

Outside of the outrage articles...people don't care. Should they? Sure. But we haven't really been introduced to a reason to care about whether Facebook knows that I'm trying to lose weight. Furthermore, I'd be interested in knowing how valuable this information is to the companies. In other words, I'd be interested in knowing if users find these targeted advertisements valuable and utilize them to a large enough extent that continues to make this an appealing strategy for these large tech companies. I'm sure the answer is, "This stuff is VERY valuable". But do users see the value in this?

I really don't believe the majority of users care about their data being used to offer a more customized web experience. And outside of these anger articles from tech blogs...I don't hear anything about it.
