How Much Will You Pay For My Shoe Size?

from the nice-try dept

A woman who last year tried (and failed) to auction off all of her important marketing demographic info on eBay is now trying to get people to give her their valuable marketing demographic info which she’ll sell to marketers and give you a cut. The idea is that marketing organizations are willing to pay a lot for the information about you – and you don’t get any of that money. She’s trying to change that, but it still seems a bit questionable. First of all, why should we trust her with our info? I think most people would just rather not give out their demographic info in the first place.
