Zoopla your neighbours….
A new website gives the value of every home in the UK - whether it's for sale or not. Judith Woods fears it will bring out the worst in us. Depending on who you ask, we either live in an empowering age of information, or a paradise for nosy parkers. Never before has so much of our personal information been freely available - for good or ill. If the Inland Revenue isn't magnanimously sharing our bank account details with identity fraudsters, then we're Googling old flames or poring competitively over our friends' Facebook profiles. We're a veritable army of internet curtain-twitchers.
