I will pay you 65 cents for your privacy

The online privacy debate is complex but it’s interesting that the average user will make a choice for something less expensive even if it means giving up privacy. In this case that number nets out at a mere 65 cents.

While it should be encouraging that consumers will opt for “privacy-friendly” providers when there is no price difference, that much should be obvious; no more than telling a driver to choose a lane of traffic that is gridlocked or a lane where no other cars are present. Further, it’s discouraging to find that people will forgo concerns of their privacy at even the slightest hint of a discount. 65¢? Really? That officially makes you the cheapest date ever, people. ”
