Privacy breaches now so common, they’re not news anymore

“Here’s a news cycle to get used to: a story breaks about a big technology company doing something that sounds like an invasion of privacy; then there’s outrage, and either an apology or a denial. Sometimes a class-action suit follows. Then everything gets forgotten until another week or two passes, and the cycle renews. Privacy snafus are to social networks as violence is to football.”

Nicholas Thompson, The New Yorker
