Startup Lets People Control And Monetize Their Personal Data
Earn up to $8 per month by selling your information on social media.
Though it may be hard for some people to place a price tag on personal data, Datacoup has made a bold statement by offering customers a monthly incentive for anonymized access to their financial data and social media accounts.
Datacoup requests customers to sign over access to their Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media accounts, as well as information on debit and credit card transactions. No identifying details are tied to collected consumer profiles, unless customers indicate otherwise.
