    I’m struggling to wrap my head around the Steam Spy thing when seen in conjunction with Facebook and Cambridge Analytica.

    When Facebook leaks user data to third parties, it’s terrible. When Valve does it, it’s great!

    When Cambridge Analytica collects stats and makes analysis using leaked Facebook Data it’s awful. When Steam Spy wholesale harvests millions of gamer profiles, it’s awesome!

      Steam Spy didn’t help Trump win.

          Coming soon: Foreign Election Intervention Simulator!

          A bunch of kids play it electing a certain candidate just for the lulz, but afterwards they realize it was like Ender’s Game and everything was real…

      I understand your confusion. When I heard about Steam Spy shutting down I was shocked that my info was publically available and that someone could do that. Instead of feeling sorry for them I was glad they were dead. So, maybe the gaming industry just needs to think stuff through a bit better.

      Playing devil’s advocate, it’s different information. I’m more comfortable with my gamer profile (which is quite disconnected from my IRL one) being data mined than my connections to friends and family. Facebook also has tons of location data on people since their apps love to run in the background on phones.

      Plus, my gamer profile is mostly used to sell me more games. Ads derived from my FB profile are more… creepy, more personal.

        That’s ok if all you play are the usual AAA titles. But what if your profile shows stuff like [url=https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=955560093<]school shooting simulator[/url<] or a [url=http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/rapelay-is-now-available-on-steam.452999255/<]rape simulator[/url<]?
