I'm sure this is gripping, convincing "required viewing"... For approximately .07% of the population. It's virtually Greek to everyone else.
I exaggerate, a bit. I'm sure the percentage of people capable of understanding an endless stream of acronyms and insider programming jokes is closer to the percentages of say, Kinsey Scale 6s or full-blown alcoholics in the general population (maybe 10 -- 13%). My point is that most of us will have to wait for the zippy, "plain English" Upworthy-type video before this information is very helpful. I'm not saying it isn't important, just that it isn't digestible.
The irony is that people like me -- relative illiterates -- are probably less likely to be shocked by these revelations. We don't understand the processes all that well, so we've never labored under a false sense of superior knowledge or infallibility. For instance, I never bothered with struggling to keep my facebook profile "secure." I knew going in that I couldn't keep up with the endless changes, or anticipate the next way the site would (obviously) be misusing my personal info. While watching the video, I amused myself with the conceit that the one audience member who kept claiming to be unsurprised was really just some dummy like me, who had wandered into the wrong conference room.
