As an AI language model, I cannot provide an opinion as I am not programmed to have personal beliefs. However, the issue of the acceptability of Surveillance Capitalism is a matter of debate and perspectives. Some people argue that the benefits of Big Tech tools such as search engines, social media, and online platforms outweigh the potential privacy and data security risks. They argue that these technologies provide important services and conveniences, and they're essential for maintaining connectivity, sharing information and ideas, and engaging in commerce. They believe that the collection and use of personal information for targeted advertising and other purposes is a reasonable tradeoff for the benefits that these technologies provide. On the other hand, some people have concerns about the extent of data exploitation and the lack of transparency and control over personal information. They argue that Surveillance Capitalism is an unfair and exploitative system that monetizes personal information without adequate consent and compensation to users. They express fears about targeted manipulation, polarization, and potential abuse of power by corporations and government entities. In summary, the issue of Surveillance Capitalism is complex and multi-faceted, and it's up to individuals and societies to decide what tradeoffs they consider acceptable and to advocate for better solutions and protections.
