Verizon pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into Go90 and pulled all of its (considerable) online distribution levers, without ever coming close to critical mass.

Google and Facebook, for example, have default settings that secure the maximum possible data from users with a click, while opting out is a multistep process, writes Bloomberg.“From an ethical point of view, we think that service providers should let users choose how personal data is used to serve tailored ads or experiences,” the report said. “Defaulting to the least privacy friendly option is therefore unethical in our opinion, regardless of what the service provider considers legitimate interest.”
