Health insurance may aquire DNA data from their patients and skyrocket the price only to the vulnerable people of certain diseases. Facebook helped advertisers target teens who feel "worthless", and FB even perform social experiments to "manlipulate" users' mood, they even use face recognition to get the results. Google analyze its users and show "biased" results. Smart appliances "internet of things" track their users and send personalized data to ad companys. Corporate media can tamper people's thoughts via biased news.

And there will be no free thought because of overwhelmed analysis(such as face recognitions that analyse mood) and systematic brainwashing. This may even happen at the end of this very century.
and the usage of predictive data through mass surveillance to create a Minority Report type of police state
