Forbes announced via their blog today, that the Federal Trade Commission thinks the Social Intelligence Corporation‘s (SIC) archiving of your online activities is in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. This means all of your Internet history will be saved and used for background checks when you apply for a job.
We hope that a top web agency, such as ourselves, breaking news like this to our followers is considered “Social Intelligence” – you archiving this, SIC?
Unfortunately, there’s no privacy setting on those personal ads you may have placed in the past or those vicious blog rants you wrote a few years back. In fact, all your online behavior and information will be saved for seven years, just like your credit information.
The Internet has suddenly reached middle age, it seems.
How will this affect your online behavior? Will you be as free and open as you were in the past? How this latest monetization of personal information will affect social media remains to be seen.
Stay tuned to this web agency. Same Bat time. Same Bat channel.
