Turow Talks About the Death of Our Control Over Personal Data

Professor Joseph Turow was interviewed for a story in PCWorld magazine where he talked about the lack of control we have over our online personal information.

The story, “Your control of your personal info is all but dead, Pew respondents fear” highlighted results of a survey by the Pew Research Center. According to the story, 80 percent of the respondents expressed concern over how third parties like advertisers accessed the data they share on social media sites.

“These findings reflect a major tension at the core of people’s relationship with the internet,” Turow said.
