In paper number 2 I will be writing about episode number 5 of “Ways of Hearing”, titled “Power” by Damon Krukowski. In episode 5, Krukowski talks about the power companies have over music and our interests altogether. Companies use algorithms to try and give suggestions based on our personal interests. These algorithms are made by collecting the user’s personal data. As helpful as this might seem, it’s concerning to think about the amount of information these companies have and what they can do with it. Many of these companies sell your information to others, who may start to target you with ads and other suggestions you may not want to get.
