“It’s really about who is accountable for assuring the continuity of the digital content you care about. In the past, users would be held accountable for backing up their own data, but lately it has shifted to providers,” said Steve Grobman, an Intel security architecture engineer.

He points out that many services are allowing people to download their activity and content posted to social media and networking sites, but the oneness is on the individual to have a smart approach to selecting cloud-based services http://www.intelfreepress.com/news/digit al-amnesia-a-threat-to-personal-data/611 0

Already, I have concerns about the many sites that disallow deletion of user comments or content. You can literally drive your own reputation into the ground, or reveal your political affiliations, and that be a matter of public record. Of course, as we age, we change, and our opinions may change, but sadly anything written on the Internet remains in ‘Ink’ on far too many sites. So, archiving content is a good and worthy goal, but privacy is also important. Just like the Internet Archive allows individual site owners to opt-out, it would be nice if individual users could censor their names from archives by submitting a request to do just that (with appropriate authentication of the person). It is scary, to me, to think of poor teenagers who throw everything on the web — a few years from now, they’ll have so much biting them in the butt that some may have a hole too deep to ever dig out of. In politically unstable countries, some may become targets. It’s simply a scary Internet ;p

Although I am unaware of how old their salable data is, the value of user behavior is high that I venture to guess they have it all.

This article from InformationWeek “Superhighway To Hell” by Stephen Saunders written June 2010 is very accurate about user information.

Why do we need an archive for everything? Tweets approximate speech: brief remarks tossed off during the course of the day. They’re not meant to be immortalized, any more than they would be if they were spoken. We should have some privacy for our offhand remarks, don’t you think?
