It has come to light that many social networking, mapping and gaming apps are being used to collect data from users, due to the fact that many people are willing to share their data with them. Many people sign up to accounts within these apps using their email addresses and phone numbers and even their credit card details, making it a good place to start for a government organization that collects these things. It is also said that GCHQ, the UK intelligence agency, has been working with the NSA on this data mining project.
