Feeling like a pawn?

Feeling like a pawn?

Yes, we are all pawns with every keystroke and every website we visit it opens up “Pandoras Box” of commercialism.

I was reading a BBC News article: “YouTube stars' fury over algorithm tests” and it was another confirmation that we are pawns.

Not just YouTube, algorithm is math, it is not a test, it is a way of life today.  We are constantly being asked which way we prefer to view commercials on telephone apps etc. Facebook and Browsers do it all the time but quietly, they know who you are by what you select or don’t select.

Here is a simple example, free streaming such as Roku, you know that little box you purchased or it may be built into the programming of you new TV, either way you are hooked.  Roku channel participants are using the sneaky algorithm calculations on you. Why?  Obviously, nothing is free, they are in it to make money. They want to know who you are and not just inocente information. 

Think❓ Algorithm calculations can even tells them your ethnic taste which means they REALLY know who you are with every keystroke.  Scary but we don’t think so because little by little since the first commercials appeared on TV we have been conditioned. Today, we let ourselves free fall into the rabbit hole, a real twilight zone.

Algorithm calculations have been around since 1890 but now with the open media it controls your thinking, even in elections those calculations building your profile. They determine who you are by the options you select or discard, it can even tells them your ethnic taste which means you are predictable and they will suck you dry, if you let them. 

So what can we do?  Beats the shit out of me because we are all plugged into this addictive virtual society, and lets not kid ourselves, it is the blood that runs in our veins.
