Mike Ellsworth's curator insight, March 12, 2013 7:42 AM

Not only can third parties tell a lot about your personality, sexuality, and politics by examinging Facebook Likes (see Researchers predict IQ, age, and more using only Facebook Likes http://sco.lt/522wPh), mapping your Twitter interactions can tell a lot about your social interactions as well.

 

When localized to the employees of a corporation, as a researcher did with Twitter, you can learn a tremendous amount of information about how the company works and what it's working on.

 

As former Sun CEO Scott McNealy once said, "You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it."

Charlie Dare's comment, August 28, 2013 8:56 AM
Neither done it "spill the beans" for personal gain.They blew the whistle on what they felt was wrong to media and people should know about in my opinion .The guy that broke the Watergate scandal (Ellisworth ?? Sp ) was a whistle blower too but he vetted what material he released, he is now sticking up for them..These guys just released a massive amount..with out knowing all the content as I understand.
Ken Morrison's comment, August 28, 2013 3:26 PM
Hi Charlie. I like that you bring up the potential argument that it does not have to be a binary argument. There are many stages between 'keep your mouth shut' and use a megaphone/Tumblr account. I agree that some vetting and restraint may have given a bit more credibility to the concept of wanting to inform the people while loving the country.
