If Facebook Can Profit From Your Data, Why Can’t You?

Data

It has become the Internet’s defining business model: free online services make their money by feeding on all the personal data generated by their users. Think Facebook, Google and LinkedIn, and how they serve targeted ads based on your preferences and interests, or make deals to share collected data with other companies.

Before the end of this year, Web users should be able to take a more active role in monetizing their personal data. Michael Fertik, cofounder and CEO of startup Reputation.com, says his company will launch a feature that lets users share certain personal information with other companies in return for discounts or other perks. Allowing airlines access to information about your income, for example, might lead to offers of loyalty points or an upgrade on your next flight. Read more…

This week, we asked you to humanize your animals for our photo challenge. We wanted your pets to pose in creative ways, or for you to simply capture the candid moments when your dog smiles and bares his teeth or your cat sits her bum down on the couch. All 150 submissions were original and absolutely adorable.

“We’re amazed at the level of creativity,” said our guest curator, Menswear Dog. “Animals can be really expressive and it’s awesome to see that captured in these photos. I would have loved to pick more than 15 — there are a lot of solid photos to choose from.”

On second dates and third dates, you begin to figure things out. That is, until digital communication complicates it even further. Suddenly you’re not just waiting on a call, you’re also half-expecting a Facebook message or a Snapchat. And oh, good grief, what if you sent that naughty photo to the wrong person?

Along with the help of Survata, Mashable surveyed 3,000 participants on what they found acceptable and polite in regard to dating in the digital age Read more…

Hate-speech

Death threats, rape threats and misogynist hate mail. If you’re a woman who likes to express her opinion on the Internet, these might seem like inevitable responses. Just ask Anita Sarkeesian.

But this week may have been the final straw when it comes to Twitter‘s sexist hate mail problem. After feminist campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez received 50 rape threats in an hour, people began to sit up and take notice: The threats were plain to see, and Twitter didn’t seem to be doing anything about it.

So, what did Criado-Perez do to inspire this level of vitriol? Not even anything particularly controversial: She’d led a campaign for a woman to be put on British banknotes. Read more…
