Can You Recognize Techy Vampires?

By Debesh Choudhury | TechFuture | 6 Sep 2021


Common citizens' private data are like food for the big tech companies and social media giants. Vampires of fiction live on human blood, and big techs and social media companies live on humans' private data.

“Citizens’ private data are like ‘blood’ to the techy vampires!” — May I compare ‘data’ with ‘blood?’

The techy vampires now rule the entire cyberspace. Nothing can happen in the Internet space without the ‘kind permission’ of the big techs and social media companies.

If you dare to do anything, your cyber presence will be ‘silenced’ for good.

What is anything? Anything means everything. You can’t post a single image or stream of texts without abiding by the rules laid out by them.

Vampires live on human blood because they are created for sucking blood and nothing else

The scriptwriters of movies create vampires to suck human blood. A male or female vampire might show to bite at certain body organs of the opposite sex because the movies need sleazy scenes to sell. But the main food of filmi vampires is a little bit of blood only. They bite, and the canine teeth are stained in blood. The stains of blood helped them to sell the horror movies.

Vampires are not real entities. They are part of the film business for a long time. Popular film producers invested a good amount of money in producing vampire movies. Then, there were too many horror movies based on vampires. It lost its glory within a couple of decades.

The reality is these vampires exist only inside books and horror movies.

Now, the big tech companies and social media giants are behaving like ‘data vampires.’ The primary food of the techy vampires is the precious private data of the users.

I am not surprised to see that our private data are hacked/stolen by internet-based tech companies. I am surprised to hear/read news media reporting the data privacy efforts of the big tech companies. If they are to protect the privacy of the citizens’ personal data, why are they collecting all private data of the users for selling?

----------------------------------------

 

Could you notice any vampirish look on the face of the techy vampires?

One of the so-called viral bloggers mentioned one of them as the best CEO. I don’t understand his reasons to mention him as a good administrator.

If they are the ones whom you think of as protectors of your personal and private data, I am afraid that some notorious data hackers could be worse data stealers than these two administrators of respective social media companies.

Surely, they are no saints or sanyasis.

They are the owners of big data broking companies.

They have the expertise to steal and sell citizens’ personal data worldwide.

They have other expertises to harm human society.

----------------------------------------

Techy vampires complete the evil cycle by collaborating with the ruling political parties

The real-world problems are for the real evils which dominate tech businesses to earn money and stop business roads to the competitor companies. The threat multiplies when the real-world evils partner with the big political parties.

Techy vampires are real-world evils.

They steal the privacy of global citizens.

They collect the private data of the people and sell it in the digital market.

They become allies of the ruling political parties to control the national governments.

Soon, techy vampires may contest elections and rule national governments!
