Updated: Jan 26, 2019
Does GDPR sound familiar to you? Remember Cambridge Analytica, facebook??
Yes GDPR means General Data Protection Regulation, It is a regulation passed in European Union that effects all European Citizens, In a nutshell it says any Company
holding personal/identifiable data should need Owner's consent before sharing/collaboration or processing. This regulation comes into effect today 25/5.More info on this can be found on the wiki page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation
My take on this- Its a good step forward, meaning company's now should respect data and be careful with it rather than use the common phrase "Play with the data". It also brings a social responsibility in the sense that users are also careful with what data they would want to expose. yes, minors are protected under this regulation requiring parent's consent.
Love to hear your take on this..Happy blogging!!
