"Growth hacker" is just a term to hide the fact that a person has a fulltime job running privacy-invading ads at Facebook, Google and Twitter. #unpopularopnion

John Oliver shares a powerful example of what is wrong with the attitude towards #privacy and security in Silicon Valley. Don't give #GAFAM your data. It isn't safe.
