Once the private sector collects personal data, three main things can happen to it. Whether you’re concerned with 1, 2, or 3, the results are the same and the solution for consumers is the same: use tools and best practices to avoid private companies from ever getting your data in the first place.You might not care about all three, but you’ll probably care about one: 1. Look at the Living Social breach as an example: 50 million people’s names, emails, birthdates, and encrypted passwords gone in one hack. The company misuses it in a way you didn’t expect or intend, that violates your privacy, or that makes you uncomfortable. Privacy laws certainly need an overhaul, but regulation isn’t an immediate solution for the everyday Internet user.
And realize that powerful web services like Facebook offer zero protection.
Most of the recent stories about big data collection and breaches have a central theme: the little guy matters and can do something.

I wanted to go back to sleep and wake up again because it was so unbelieveable. Man, Computer looked like he was about to have a stroke. So Infamous was laughing so hard about it that he ended up telling the truth. It was so funny because we went through his suitcase and everything. I was never in the group and really was a solo artist.
Whether that individual is a Facebook user who refuses to give the site her real name, an NSA whistleblower who tells the world when it’s being watched, or a person using a tool to block companies from tracking him online, each person has the power to move privacy forward or diminish it.
