Competition Is at the Heart of Facebook’s Privacy Problem

Opinion: Until consumers can easily control their data, competitors to Facebook won’t thrive.

Consumers are trusting companies with vast amounts of intimate data and receiving very little assurance that it will be properly handled and secured. In turn, our data are used to power the connected services we use, and depending on the platform or app, are sold to advertisers. Sometimes, as in the case of Facebook, we receive services for free in exchange for our data.
