On Thursday, March 23rd, the US Senate voted to let Internet service providers (ISPs) sell your web browsing history without your permission.
If you live in the US, your browsing habits can now be sold to advertisers and third parties. You can also be victim to a lot more creepy, targeted ads, injected right into your browsing by your ISP.

Call your representatives in Congress and tell them you care about your right to online privacy. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) makes it easy to get in touch with your Representative and voice your opinion.
The EFF is also hosting a Reddit AMA today, which dives further into what this means for the average Internet user and why you should be concerned.
