Senators Introduce A Bill That Blocks Data Sharing

Senators John McCain and John Kerry are seriously considering to introduce a bill a week from Wednesday that will limit what companies can do with online user activity and profile data. The bill will require that the sharing of user data between companies be an “opt-in” feature that users can choose if they want to share personal information about them. While this bill sounds good on paper, it will definitely limit the amount of “pool data” available which may have unforeseeable consequences on many features we rely on. I do however, like the option of opting in and hope that if the bill does get passed, people will not be too paranoid about sharing certain kinds of information.
