Google Glass was an interesting case because it showed us people do care about privacy, but only when they feel it's violated.

They will give endless data on themselves and others including photos, video and location but they will outrage the moment they feel privacy is actually at risk - because someone has a camera on their face instead of their hands.

Facebook is actually very clever to obtain all this data without triggering this sensation for the average person.

People know.. but they do not *feel*.


@polychrome I guess that’s the genius of the typical front-facing phone/tablet camera. It’s in there *somewhere* but since it’s hidden behind the glass, it’s easy to forget about it, or act as if it isn’t there, in our own hands...
