''Industry experts say:

data about

facebook

users is gathered and shared all the time. The gathering  over how millions of

facebook

profiles were apparently exploited for political purposes raises all sorts of questions about how our data is being used.''

''Over 90% of the world's data was created in the last three years and by 2020 it is estimated that there will be 30 billion connected devices all collecting data.

 

Our search history, contacts lists, website visits, are all being collected and often sold on.''

 

But the question is:

Who owns

this data?

Many of us agree to give away our data to companies when we accept their terms of use. This may seem like a small price to pay for a 'free' service. But should we be giving our personal information so easily?
