"The Commission further charged that Spokeo had failed to ensure the accuracy of its profiles ... "

That sh*t scares the hell out of me. Companies were using this background check based on false reporting about the stuff you say online? I wouldn't be surprise if a lot of people were denied good careers over a few jokes not meant literally.

So f*cked up.

They can tie you to your IP and cross check it with your email (or any other online profile like facebook) to identify who you are.

It's one of the reasons, I don't use my first name in my user name.

Also I would hire longhornfan over Rambo any day of the week.

at this clown thinking that the type of music he likes would disqualify him from a job as opposed to his basic personality and him being a complete jackass in every other way.

except that website doesn't post IP or email addy's so there would be no tie in.

For somebody who spends half his time trying to convince ISH about what a critical thinker he is you sure seem to be lacking any common sense.

The ability for online ad and data collection companies to track users online can come as a shock to the average Internet user, he told the E-Commerce Times. However, by and large, these companies are rarely able to connect a specific individual with the online surfing habits they so eagerly collect.

That changes when someone visits their social media site, Wills explained. "Ad companies can connect the dots once you go to your site. Now they know not only what sites someone in my demographic category visits -- but, specifically, who is visiting them."


Until recently, in other words, they were able to collect only data that was anonymous and aggregated. The social networking sites provided the missing link -- establishing who is reading what news at CNN, for example, or who's buying what at Amazon.

Advertisers could conceivably track who's surfing which medical sites or who's looking for bankruptcy attorneys. This sort of information could wind up being very valuable to the online advertising industry, which is banking on a growth spurt in local and hyper-local online advertising.

The next step will be to start using friends' data, Wills said, noting that the one-off examples of companies leveraging friends' data for, say, credit scoring, may well be outliers for a wider trend in a few years.

"Certainly, Facebook's recent changes in privacy point to that -- now all of your friends are visible to anyone in the world," he noted.
Legal Issues

Social media data is increasingly finding its way into the courtroom, much to people's surprise and dismay, Misha Kerr, an intellectual property attorney with the law firm of Arnstein & Lehr, told the E-Commerce Times.

She told of a client who attended a house party in Florida during Spring break, only to discover that it was actually a filming party for an adult Web site. She hadn't signed any releases for her images to be used, but they wound up on a porn Web site, nonetheless.

Kerr's client sued for violation of privacy and damage to her reputation. The defendant countered with photos the client had posted to her social network that were risque, with the argument her reputation couldn't have been damaged too severely, given what she voluntarily posted.

"The moral of that story is what you think is a private page is not private, and you never know who has access to it," Kerr said.

The tracking works like this, sites you visit will have a cookie, say if you post on ISH, and then go to facebook, a "persistent" cookie can track you to your facebook page. Voila! You are identified. Emails can also easily link them to you, and of course your IPs, which ISH makes money off of based on the traffic this site gets, so if the company is paying ISH for the data, there is no reason why ISH wouldn't give them the IPs also.

You don't take this sh*t seriously? If my pristine credit score is being affected based on who I friend on facebook, that's some sh*t I would like to know rather than having to dig through the internet and find the fact hidden in some unpopular article.

If that is the case, then I'm going to have to start unfriending some people: my deadbeat uncle, my old friend who got injured and is on disability, which means he's probably jobless .... and oh yea, definitely all the mexican friends because I'm sure they aint got no money.

Sifting through data is very expensive. I remember my friends at TWC rejected Movie company requests based on the fact it was too expensive to search every person for certain things. I doubt a normal job has the ability to see what you posted on facebook to make sure you are not nuts.

Yea if you are applying for a job at Mcdonalds or some low paying job. there are multi-billion dollar companies willing to fork over the cash for this kind of data. I don't have a problem with that; what I do have a problem is the data is not entirely accurate and does not measure the "personality" of a person in real life. I might joke a sh*t ton on this site. It's my free time; I'm in my private home; so I'll joke around and say sh*t I normally would not say in a professional setting.

This is some Truman Show meets I, Robot shit. How long before Skynet becomes self aware? Only one man (cybernetic organism: living tissue over metal endoskeleton) can save us. Too bad he looks like this now:
