There are two opinions in regards to being tracked in the web though cookies, Google and Facebook: Some do mind having their data (ab)used and the majority, for the sake of convenience, succumbs to its dominance by declaring that “they have nothing to hide”.

Some internet-users sense that something is bothering them, but because they can’t pinpoint it, they create conspiracy theories to have a construct against which to push back.
