So, what is your online activity worth? You know: social media posts, web history, GPS location—the works. Right now, data brokers trade with advertisers in a multi-billion dollar market. There are also a bunch of new ways you can sell your own data. But it may not add up to as much as you would hope.
Big data brokers like Acxiom want to create a precise file on you. They want to know things like how much money you make and where you shop – online and in person.
Matt Hogan says amassing an accurate, personal file filled with info is no easy task. “If you’re Acxiom, you’re the largest data broker, you’re cobbling together all these different piece-meal, publicly available, stale, maybe leaked data sources and what you get is a profile that is not correct.”
Hogan is the founder of Datacoup, a start-up where consumers can sell their data directly to advertisers. He says his platform gives marketers a clearer picture of consumers, and it will give consumers some return for their data. “Why not sell your information?” he asks. “Companies already do it.”"

In job searches, people frequently look at the listed requirements, see a gap, and move on, fearing rejection and not wanting to waste the employer’s time and their own. They’re making a big mistake, and potentially holding their careers back. A job posting doesn’t describe a real person. It describes a fictional (and often unrealistic) ideal that companies don’t really expect to find.
So that’s what I’ve been doing wrong all these years…
