In the podcast, it was mentioned that if there is enough people who do not care about giving up their data, it could be possibly be harmful to other people who want their privacy protected. For example how this indirectly affected that Target Customer. Another example was how a friend can expose your location without really thinking about the potential harm it may cause by posting a Facebook status update. How then can we know what to post and what not to post? Should we even post anything at all since any slight release of information can potentially harm someone?How can we draw a line that this is the ideal amount of information to release?

FYI - I've also seen it suggested that the Target story may have been more of an "illustrative story", and not necessary an actual incident. See: https://www.kdnuggets.com/2014/05/target-predict-teen-pregnancy-inside-story.html
