The overuse and abuse of big-data analysis may destoy human society. Airlines use big data to get your places of interest and commit first degree price discrimination. 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.
In the near future, smart city will be a form of panopticon controlled by tecnology monopoly, where people's activities are watched(and controlled). 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.

You can live mostly under the radar, if you wish, but you will be unable to use mobile phones (unless you trust your provider), and you may be unable to drive a car (to avoid automated tolls and traffic cameras), and anonymous public transport may be limited.  You can still relatively safely use the internet through services like the Tor network.  The irony, though, if very few people live under the radar, authorities might consider that itself suspect.

I find it pretty annoying that, for instance, if I need a hotel somewhere and search for options on the internet, I get bombed by ads for hotels in the area for months.  It's better that way, though, than seeing those ads stop once my stay is over.  That would be more creepy.  But we might soon be there.

Google has tracked me since April 2016.  This overview map is fairly harmless, but the information I find if I zoom in, while sometimes useful for me, is perhaps more than I'd like to share.

Thats probably why the EU has been fining Google billions of dollars.  They should do that here too.
