Google+ the new Facebook? Is your privacy at risk?
Google+ is the new answer from Google to Facebook but this I am sure you already know it. It allow you to create “circles” of relations and put friends, family, co-workers together and to share specific content with each of those groups.
But to answer my own question the answer is YES but…
- If you have a GMail account, Google probably already know who are your friends, family members, co-workers…
- You use probably Google everyday for your search and they already collect all this information about your life, the sites you visit, your favorite sports team
- If you own and Android phone, they also know where you are and when (more than my wife), they have access to your calendar and your contacts
Now, what more do you have to fear? Honestly I don’t know but one thing is sure: Every time Google did something wrong about private life (like the WiFi episode) they communicated and rectified the shot. Can you say the same about Facebook??
By the way if you need an invite to Google+ and try it for yourself, leave me a comment letting me know what you would like to find on this site and your mail of course
- None found
