Digital Gold

Digital Gold

By fiifi DZANSI

Data is the digital gold for tech companies.

With our data, they can track all our activities.

These tech companies know us so much that they’ve become like a god above watching down on his creation.

Tech companies flourish on selling data to a third party and accumulate millions of dollars at the end of the year.

The bait is to throw in a free app and encourage people to use it at no charge.

And because the majority of us like free stuff, we are quick to hop on. 

We hand over our privacy to them on a platter.

Eventually, we pay for ‘free’ apps with our valuable data, digital gold.
