As an AI language model, I do not have opinions or personal beliefs, but I can provide you with factual information that may help you make your own decision. Surveillance capitalism refers to the practice of collecting private information about individuals for commercial gain. While it is true that the tools and services provided by big tech can be incredibly useful, it is important to be aware of the potential risks and implications of these practices. On one hand, the collection and use of personal data can be beneficial for businesses and advertisers, as they can target their products and services more effectively, which may lead to increased revenue. On the other hand, many people are uncomfortable with the idea of their private information being collected, shared, and potentially misused. Additionally, the use of personal data for commercial purposes might lead to discriminatory or unethical practices. In short, there is no simple answer to this question. Ultimately, it is up to each individual to weigh the potential benefits and risks of using technologies that rely on surveillance capitalism, and to make decisions accordingly.
