Okay. Sit back. Take a few deep breaths. That’s right, relax. If some of you are beginning to worry that this is an intrusion of your privacy, you’re not at a dead-end. There are other options out there. If you don’t want one giant company overseeing everything you do, then just go back to the ancient 2008 way of handling all your internet business. You can use a hotmail or yahoo account for your email, you can use Facebook for social networking, you can Bing your searches instead of googling them. Don’t get all paranoid, though, we figure it won’t turn out to be a big deal…(gulp) Google is even clarifying the new policy in a statement.
It’s all business competition, people. It’s a reaction to social networking giant, Facebook, who is battling for the Google gargantuan throne with all its bells and whistles.
It’s monster eat monster out there, so be careful. It’s safe to say that whatever you put on the internet now is no longer personal, everything is public. That means even the things you think are well-hidden will be accessible to big companies. Our motto is if you can avoid the waves, then grab a Margarita and watch them from the shoreline. It’s easier to swim after the high tide has settled…if you catch our drift.
