It is an invasion of privacy if you do not consent to have your data used as such.  In most cases, people willingly signed over those rights.  Check the ToS on Facebook for example.

Secondly, opting in is not the issue, opting out is.

There is also the concept of context and traverse ability.  I may have your weight recorded but in a manner where it is not directly attributable to you without further correlation.  Cookies are a good example of this.

Privacy is self-calibration of one's vulnerability on or offline.

"You" not "Them" decide to lock your front-door at night, for instance.

Any situation in which "You" aren't the calibrator of "Your" vulnerability is an invasion of privacy.
