Headline, June 10 2021/ STUDENTS : ''' '' USERS PRIVACY UMPHS '' '''



ON THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY : - the exclusive ownership of every student in the world, the final, supreme and total power lies with the students of the entire world.

All genius, present and future policies framed on data will only be according to the supreme will of the students. This objective, abstraction and component stands absolute, by the Global Founder Framers of The World Students Society, who honour and hold the VETO, in a master system of checks and balances.

The World Students Society in its master founding principle, has given the world it's total freedom, as a ''Crowning Human Right''.

In The World Students Society we all stand equal. Feel free to protest, debate, agree, disagree, scream, shout, holler, wince, argue, persuade, stand tall, stand mean, stand human, stand great, stand petty, stand narrow but stand leading.

But once a decision is made on any subject or issue, according to great democratic norms, culture and traditions, you are bound to support and see it through to execution in both letter and spirit. In every event, stay in the circle of greatness. Welcome to The World Students Society.

Sam Daily Times, the master global publication of The World Students Society, The Ecosystem 2011,  is totally ''free of charge''. And all the revenues that the students so approve, allow and support, belong to the students.

MANY OF THE BIGGEST TECH FIRMS have long insisted that consumers care more about free services than the privacy they surrender to use them.

Companies like Facebook pointed to their own exponential growth and insisted that consumers were voting with their feet.

Turns out that was utter nonsense.

When offered an actual choice in the new operating system that runs iPhones, the students are all in on privacy.

Just 6 percent of U.S. daily users of Apple's latest mobile software are opting to allow companies like Facebook and its many affiliates to hoover up data about them and sell it to advertisers, according to Flurry Analytics, [The figure is much higher globally, at about 15 percent].

OF COURSE - THE SOCIAL NETWORK'S OBJECTIVES are really about Facebook's ad sales business, which generated $25.4 billion in the first three months of 2021 alone.

Anything, Facebook professes, that threatens its ability to trail users as they browse retail, travel, news and other sites could threaten the company's ability to offer its social media sites ''free of charge.''

Early data shows consumers overwhelmingly want more privacy. Apple's new operating system for phones forces each app to ask permission to track users across the Internet - a choice that was previously available but difficult to find.


Other app companies including Etsy and Pandora try a different approach by reminding users in mobile app pop-ups that their free services are supported by targeted advertising.

The Weather Network implies that tracking users helps it save lives. Twitter and Nextdoor simply want customers to have the most ''relevant'' ads.

But customers shouldn't be guilted into helping people sell them stuff. Without knowing that a user spent 20 minutes browsing cooking gadgets on Sur La Table, advertisers can do a pretty good job of guessing who is most likely to want to see meal kit ads, through a type of marketing known as contextual advertising.

That relies on clues they can more easily glean, such as general age, gender, location and income level.

Advertisers are willing to pay much more for ads targeted based on users' behavior. But there's evidence that websites don't see much of a revenue bump from that upcharge.

According to a 2019 study, sites may reap only a 4 percent reward for targeted ads after middlemen take their cut, belying app developers arguments that their business is reliant on tracking.

There's the very real likelihood that marketers could use the savings from lower advertising price on Apple devices to reach customers in more creative ways than just sticking ads on Facebook and Twitter. That might include traditional media and other apps - a potential benefit to smaller developers.

In U.S. Consumers have federal rights to privacy, leaving tech companies to put in place policies as they see fit. And critics allege Apple may be coming out with the changes to get ahead of the regulatory pressure and an  ongoing U.S. antitrust lawsuit over its app store.

Advertising is only a small part of Apple's business, meaning it can afford to take a cut in revenue while sticking it to competitors.

Ironically, Apple will have to act even more like a regulator itself to ensure that app developers are following the rules of its new software. Snapchat's parent, for instance, reportedly studied ways to circumvent Apple's rules about tracking users, as did an industry group for Chinese app developers.

Users should have more control over their data, and Apple's solution is a step forward. Between phishing, robocalls and texts, malware and nagging popups, there's enough manipulation online already without eerily specific ads that follow you around the web.

Google, which like Facebook has a huge part of its business in advertising, took baby steps some weeks ago towards adding privacy features to its Android mobile software, including options to obscure precise location data and show more detail about the information that apps are collecting. But it needs to get serious about consumers' rights or risk losing customers to Apple.

Companies did just fine for decades marketing to consumers without access to their every movement or keyboard and mouse clicks. And with 94 percent of the students and Americans saying they liked it that way, it's time for advertisers to listen.

Apple and Facebook feud reveals a desire for true and real privacy.
