Kashmir Hill on Amazon and Facebook’s Secret Data-Sharing Agreement

Kashmir Hill, writing for Gizmodo:

Facebook doesn’t want to tell us how its systems work. Amazon doesn’t want to tell us how its systems work. These companies are data mining us, sometimes in concert, to make uncomfortably accurate connections but also erroneous assumptions. They don’t want to tell us how they do it, suggesting they know it’s become too invasive to reveal. Thank god for leakers and lawsuits.
