What is Cambridge Analytica
Cambridge Analytica is a British political consulting firm which combines data mining, data brokerage, and data analysis with strategic communication for the electoral process.
Note: This Information is Only for the Awareness of Peoples who are using the Internet.
We are Indians and we always love to use Free Services or Products on the internet as well as in Real World. Before Taking any Free Services or Products We have the Same Dialog Among all Indians; “Free me Mil Raha hai to le lo” and we Always Love To Fight with Shopkeepers To Get “BuyOne Get one Free.
But Let Me Remind You one Thing Guys ” Nothing is Free in the World” Buy one Get one” is also not a free Because the Product’s Production Cost is always added in the First Product.
The Internet is not a free Platform as just we Mostly think. Internet Will Provides you Mostly three Types of Services:
- Full Free Services: You May or May not to Share Your Email Id or Personal Data e.g. Wikipedia
- Partial Free Services: Some Information is Free But Some information Will open After Entering Your Email Id and Name Like Dc Classes, Mock Test Result will be shown after entering your Email Id.
- Paid Services: It has Two Types
(a) Enter your All Personal Data Like Name, Email, City, Set Password And Access All Services that is Provided By Particular Company Like Facebook
(b) Enter your All Personal Data Like Name, Email, City, Set Password and pay a Decent amount of money to get the Service that is Provided By Particular Company Like Apple Itunes (Monthly 300 Rupees to get Songs).
I Hope You have Cleared About the Types of Services on the Internet. When You want to Access the Third Type of Services then You Need To PayFirst that is Information Your Personal Information or We Can Say that Internet has a “Barter System” (Share Your Info And Acces Our Information) to Pay and Access And Facebook Also Doing this from Begining.
