Data Centre Server rack with hard drive modules removed, made by Delta Electronics, Inc, China, for Facebook, Inc., Menlo Park, California, USA, 2014. Used in Facebook's Data Centre in Lulea, Sweden, located above the Arctic Circle.

Vast quantities of our online data travel through undersea cables and are stored in racks like these. The data stored within them can be used to build detailed pictures of each of us. This information about our lifestyles, our friends, our hopes, opinions and fears can be used to target advertising and sell us products. But it can also be used to influence public opinion in other ways. The secrets revealed by big data can change society.
