In so many ways in the Information Age, Americans are powerless to thwart violations of privacy. Be it consumer companies, retail firms, or the federal government, it seems like our personal data is now an open book.

But in many ways Americans invite invasions of privacy too, such as when we join social media networks like Facebook, Google+ and others that routinely harvest our data. It is almost laughable today to hear many of these social platforms deny that they are collecting every ounce of data on us they possibly can, given the overwhelming evidence that they do.

As I have written before, I do utilize some social media – I have a blog site and Google+ site I use to share my views and market NaturalNews stories (we are, after all, a web-based news site).

But when offered new products that are essentially Internet-connected spying machines, I pass – and so should you.

Take Amazon’s “amazing” new Echo device. It is always “listening” for a command; and since it’s connected to the “Internet of things,” it is susceptible to third-party monitoring and hacking.

“I guess there is a difference between deciding to share something and having something captured”
