Facebook may currently be the black sheep when it comes to privacy and data violations, but it isn’t the only company capable of watching every step you take. Bloomberg Businessweek writers Lizette Chapman, Jordan Robertson and Peter Waldman profile the big-data firm Palantir Technologies, which has evolved from helping the US government catch terrorists to assisting companies monitor their employees and helping law enforcement detect possible offenders. A common thread that runs through both companies is their desperate need to make money and please investors – which, as it turns out, is at odds with protecting people’s privacy.
