Chances are you have have heard the above saying but (may be!) don’t understand it properly! Well, you use Facebook, Google, Instagram, WhatsApp, Gmail, YouTube, countless free apps & websites & now you are reading Minute Crunch for free! Do you ever think why such services are free? Well, all of us use your browsing history & cookies to show ads targeted to you based on your interests & we earn out cut but not all of us sell your personal information! Healthy system, right? Unfortunately, some companies like Facebook collect date like your email, mobile number, location, your interests et cetera & sell your personal information¬†to other companies for billions breaching your privacy & trust! We think Facebook justifies the above saying aptly!
