Want to freak yourself out? I'm gonna show just how much of your information the likes of Facebook and Google store about you without you even realising it
Oh come on!
Online calendar in keeping your appointment schedule shocker!
Online document editor in keeping your documents shocker!
YOU uploaded the videos. YOU clicked “Like” on the things you liked. YOU turned Google location tracking on.
If that was the case Nige it would be less of an intrusion but most of these are defaulted “ON”, in other words you have to opt out and if you don’t even know it’s doing it how do you opt out? I’ve never “allowed” Google to track me but it has. The way Google and Facebook (and others) are set up is a big invasion of privacy. I think if any Government attempted such a level of surveillance there would be uproar, it’d make the STASI look good. The original article gives links that one can use to check out how much of one’s own personal data is stored by these companies. Try the links, I think you’ll be surprised. I was and I barely ever use d Facebook and only use Google for search.
I thought this was interesting…
