Today on the podcast I want to talk to you about data – specifically your data – well, specifically MY data…. but it just as well might be your data. We all know that tech giant and social networks collect TONS of our personal formation and that they have become intregral into so many parts of our lives. And they collect a LOT of data about you. But have you ever tried to take a look at just how much of your data you’re sharing? Have you ever tried to take any of it back?
Today I’ll tell you about some of the tools I’ve used (and that you can use) to view, download, digest and if you so choose – DELETE some of the data that is stored via social media and other tech giants. Specifically we’ll look at Google, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I’ll tell you what I’ve found and how easy (or impossible) it is to remove your data.
