Privacy could be 'a priced luxury' in 10 years, says Pew report
A report by Pew Research Center suggests that privacy in the next ten years will be more of a luxury.
Washington: A report by Pew Research Center suggests that privacy in the next ten years will be more of a luxury.
According to the Washington Times, Lee Rainie, director of the Pew Research Center's Internet and American Life Project, there is broad agreement that the world will become much more "transparent" or "public"-but there's little or no consensus about what will happen to privacy policies.
The issue of privacy crops up from numerous incidences where photos and personal data of celebrities and other prominent people have been leaked online.
Several experts believe that the idea presented in the report says that privacy will be a priced luxury.
Filmmaker Tiffany Shalin said that if society stops seeing privacy as a right then that would amount to a different problem altogether, mainly focused on class and economic division.
Shalin said in the report that in 2025, everything will be transparent, adding that people will not have the illusion of privacy and this would have consequences.
