There’s a new craze in the town that’s spreading like wildfire called ToonMe.
ToonMe is a website that does what it says by turning you into an animated character based on looks. All you have to do is upload a picture of yourself or anyone else, and watch it transform before your eyes into an animated character.
While this is all fun and enjoyable that’s drawing Singaporeans, we tend to forget what it usually entails.
As for how the information is processed, it’s the standard sharing protocol that everyone has been whining about recently at Facebook. I mean it can’t get any more obvious than the statement that says ‘..and for other purposes related to our business’ aka to sell your data for profit.
We preach about protecting our privacies, but we choose not to pay attention to all the applications like ToonMe affecting it. Ironic isn’t it?
Bottom line is READ THE FINE PRINT ON EVERYTHING.
