What are the possible consequences?

Could it be invasive or a simple marketing strategy?

When we browse the internet, we unknowingly give data to businesses. Have you ever wondered what happens to your posts or photos when you share them on social media? Even downloading free music or videos, or other digital products has its “price.”

The bottom line is, are you comfortable with this?
