Long way from savvy and careful users we are now.
It's all about value systems.
Different people have different tolerances. A recent survey found that most people would rather have nude photos of them hacked and posted online than have personal financial data exposed. But a lot are the reverse.

As I said above, I don't mind Amazon knowing what books I read (or Microsoft know what printer I have--an HP5L, btw) but I would definitely object to them selling it to a third party or the government.

YMMV.

The only real common ground is informational: everybody should know what is being collected and what happens to it. But expecting everybody to react similarly is a hopeless task.
