But we are not yet in the world of surveillance and security? Of Foucault’s ideas of discipline and punishment, the idea of ’big brother’ is known and not implemented for many years. Moreover, Bentham’s panopticon style Jail just looks, designed to keep inmates watch without knowing, completely changed the face tracking in today’s day and age. Of course, Bentham saw Jail to have a positive effect on criminal behavior, but doing the same thing for the general public? Mainly focused on the digital age and we have entered the information, one of the main advantages for companies to become elite distribute advertising and promotion of the people monitoring the internet shopping and surfing habits.
Subsequently the government body has ensured that people are always good internet surveillance made possible by frequent media coverage and legislative action. This not only makes the shopping experience more personalized and tailored to our tastes, but it enables a higher level of security to protect the public from the unauthorized and potentially dangerous online behavior. However, the level of monitoring raises the question, how far they have to go? This is one example of the effect on tracking people online presence can have. If you see this as a positive or negative, there is always a concern that personal data might be leaked, hacked or altered without permission. There are great sites like Google and Facebook will be able to see what you do online, your likes, dislikes, spending habits, social groups, hobbies and even your location, all while using their services. Do not they have information, they use it as a way to ‘make your online experience better’ but in reality they could use all the data to manipulate what you buy, choose what they want you to look at and potentially change the course of the use of the internet. If power is supplied to large companies, which allows easy access for government agencies could mean even your private conversations, calls, messages and the sensitive data without knowing.
Granted you learned, if the police ask to see the information, we are usually happy to allow this, but legislation is being considered can be compared to someone looking for property in your home while you are away. Do you like the idea? Safety vs. privacy, slim line and is difficult to tell which path you see fit for everyone. But it seems very similar to the idea of panopticon prison stretch in the daily life of everyone in some shape or form sooner or later.
