Have you been diagnosed and are you currently being treated for diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or hypertension? The Financial Times would like to know. This is a recent example of the type of data collection on behalf of market research companies in which the 127-year-old newspaper is now engaged as it attempts the transition to digital journalism.
Those online consumers of financial news who will not pay the £380-per-year subscription must instead pay to read FT reporting with their opinions and medical histories.
