Whether you like it or not, everywhere you go, other people will be able to instantly access information about your reputation with or without your knowledge or consent.

How to curate your on and offline activity in way that will reduce the risk profile (And therefore your premiums) calculated by insurers
How to lure venture capital for your business idea or startup, court low interest rates from investors and garner the attention of tech giants like Google and Microsoft
