I saw The Social Delimma on Netflix. From all of the doom and gloom, I took away that the monetization model for the big tech companies is the foundational problem which cannot be fixed unless the whole business model is overhauled.
I primarily use OzB. I don't have an Instagram or TikTok account. I do have Facebook but I am cautious with it. The key differentiator (in the documentary) was the fact that content displayed by the big tech companies is unique and targetted to the user, thereby prioritising the advertisers interests. I understand that OzB neither uniquely curates content nor shows ads to its registered users but I do feel addicted to it. So instead of assuming I decided to raise the question:
Does OzB creates any user profiles for third party interests?
