Agreed. I suspect that many of those who believe they have control over their personal information are fooling themselves.

re: Microsoft Finds People Want More Privacy Control
I'm surprised this stat on perceived lack of control isn't more like 85% rather than 45%. How many times do you find yourself unsubscribing from email sources that you never solicited. How many times do you see banners and other ads for the types of products you've recently searched?

Ten years ago your purchase habits would steer direct mail offers a few weeks or months after you made a significant purchase. Today even casual browsing can mold your Web experience within hours. That doesn't really scare me, but I certainly don't feel as if I have any control over the use of data about my online behavior.
