I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, one of the benefits of being neighbours to the United States is that we kind of get to celebrate two Thanksgivings. I hope you’re enjoying the Black Friday sales going on everywhere. Me? I’m going to shop for Christmas online and avoid the malls.
And, while I’m doing that online shopping, I’m going to be mindful in the ways in which I’m leaving a digital trail that makes it much easier to learn things about me. This wouldn’t necessarily be the case if I braved the mall.
Since I know about the tracking, I’m also likely going to take steps to protect myself and only give up the information I want. This fact, however, is in stark contrast with most Canadians. Did you see the latest CBC poll on the mindset of Canadians when it comes to leaving yourself vulnerable in the online world? You’ll find more details in the article below.
Of course, there’s plenty more news to catch up on, so take a break from all that shopping and read up.
Oh, and go Redblacks on Sunday’s Grey Cup game, of course!
