If you think online services like Facebook and Google are free, think again. They come with a price in the form of users’ personal data, which these companies transform into massive advertising revenues.
Personal data is the “new oil” in the words of The Economist, and the mining of online data is just the start. My company, Planet of finance, has re-considered the role of users in today’s data economy. Instead of considering them as passive data providers, we started thinking of them as the creators of the new data wealth. We believe in building a society that recognises this exchange and gives credit to the people who are actually producing the new systems. Creating a real, transparent data market can help everyone, and the gains should be shared with the creators.
