The Terms of Service, an agreement whose name you’re probably familiar with, but what about the contents of the infamous agreement? Chances are you’ve never even read one line, yet you have probably agreed to the terms multiple times in your Internet tenure.
On Twitter and Facebook in the past eight months, there were over 1,700 individuals who came out and admitted their secret: they don’t read any website or web services terms of service prior to signing up.
Why is this you ask?
Well, complaints included the agreement being too long for starters, while others just flat out didn’t care — they just wanted access to a site or service.
But really, should you care about what you’re potentially agreeing to?
In an ideal world, yes. However, the fact of the matter is that if you want to be on Facebook with your friends, you’ll agree to their terms, as there’s no way for you to negotiate your own terms of service.
