And if you haven’t read it already, too bad, it’s already in effect. (If only we could turn back time and clear our browsing history)
But before being too negative, shouldn’t we at least think about why they did it in the first place?
The company says that this new policy is to better target search results and to also better customize ads to each user.
But in reality:
The new policy essentially says that Google will use information from any one of its services to influence the performance of any of the others — so someone’s search results may be influenced by the content of their Gmail messages or the videos they watched on YouTube, or by their contacts, friends and followers across Google services.
A lot of people are saying that they don’t want to be forced into that. And it even breaches European law. But think of it this way, if you don’t like it, you don’t have to use it (problem is that most of us can’t live without it anymore)
Considering that Google is probably the most used search engine I think everyone should go over the policy, get acquainted with what’s going on and then take it from there.
And if you don’t like it their way, well there’s always the highway.
