WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT You are a statistic.
A better way to say this would be you are nothing but data in this digital age.

Who you are, where you live, what you do, what you like or dislike, what you read, speak, write or think is a data point of value to someone. Not necessarily in a malicious way.
