Who is working for whom?

There are many types of 'trust' that we grant and within this, several levels of trust to be considered. The issue of trust is covered by information we place on-line. Where we make information public - can we trust that it will be used properly and treated fairly? Can we trust that 'private' is private and will remain so. Further more - can we trust the competencies of honest companies to protect us from malicious threats? There are many cases where they have failed to do so. This depiction focuses on more general data we may provide i.e. social media and where the user is arguably the commodity at stake. Here, we see a depiction of our devices 'using' us. In a world of 'free' services - who is working for whom and what impact does that have on the way data is targeted?

This is more of a cultural reference to our interfacing with the cyber world en masse - it is a cultural shift so large that it is arguably not feasible to 'opt' out of it. Even if you do not place any information online yourself - your service providers (any one from SM to utility companies) will. As big data is worth more as it accumulates this visual shows how we are all hearded in one direction and thus - we must be able to trust the system as a whole.
