As if you didn’t already share enough (maybe too much?) on Facebook and Twitter, a lot of personal data that you didn’t even know existed is being shared online—records such as insurance claims, digital health records, housing records and all the things your friends and acquaintances have to say about you. And lest you think otherwise, the market for this data is huge.
