Bruce Schneier, one of the guru's of InfoSec stated that...

Data collection is one of three emerging Cyber Threats. It is the one threat, with the most dangerous potential, more dangerous than Crime or Cyber Warfare.

Know that your social media tweets and comments will be resold to insurance companies.

Face book are using datalogix and Acxioum to harvest your offline data and purchases to merge with your online profile.

Insurance companies are buying your profile and tweets - for risk assessments.

The EU found that a quarter of candidates CV's were thrown in the bin, after their Facebook profile was checked. These are candidates who would have made it through to an interview.

If you're unemployed, can't get a job, or get on in your career - maybe you should check your Facebook profile.

Data mining was initially developed by the US military - to hunt for the Chinese. The project was called "Able Danger". It was stopped multiple times as it breach US privacy laws. Then came DARPA funding, then it got shut down, then came 911 and CIA funding to hunt AlQuaeda and terror cells.
Data mining was a military tool - that is being used on civilians, without adequate checks. This unregulated Marketing data, is used by governments, divorce lawyers, employers, criminal prosecutions, insurance companies.

This unregulated data is used for social sorting and social profiling. It leads to automated discrimination, and code is law.

Many agree with Schneier. "Data collection" and the data collectors, are offering free surveillance, and profiling to any third party who'll pay for access to it.
