As time has evolved, the evasion of the issue surrounding internet privacy has become condoning. It can be prominently seen that peoples’ online information can be sold, distributed, and abused by big corporations. Therefore, big media corporations can sell or use this information to profit. In George Orwell's book 1984, private citizens live lives that are controlled by the government, their largest corporation, through the use of knowledge gained by technology. In the novel 1984, most people besides the main character Winston are clueless and do not have any knowledge of what the government is doing.As these corporations continue to take advantage of what people put on social media, they can learn everything they need to, to control the economy, with every search. Privacy issues are at risk in current times, hence why people are more knowledgeable nowadays.
