Google, Gmail, and Youtube Sharing Your Data

Google’s new privacy policy means that they will be collecting all of your personal preference data across youtube, google, and gmail. They claim it is to cater to you and provide you with specific ads. That actually sounds reasonable to me, but it’s definitely a turn towards big brother. Google and Facebook already know way too much about each person who uses their websites.

    Did you read the whole Privacy Policy? It’s creepy as fv–…. Not “one more step towards Big Brother” it’s full personal disclosure.

    • It sure is:
      “calendar appointments, location data, search preferences, contacts, personal habits based on Gmail chatter, device information and search queries, to name a few. “
