Google Dashboard: Knowing What Google Collects About Individuals
For practically the beginning, Google has collected information about individuals to analyze, store, and occasionally provide to third party vendors. Although asked countless time from various people and organization about what kind of data Google collects about individuals, the corporation has kept tight-lipped. Or it has until yesterday at Spain.
Google’s unveiled a new product called Google Dashboard yesterday (Thursday) in Spain. Supposedly, it will give users “more transparency and control.”
I haven’t had the time to explore Google Dashboard yet, so I’ll post more when I do. Until then, I just took a screen shot to show what info is being disclosed about individuals. It is clear that not everything is disclosed through this new service, although it appears that Dashboard will continue to evolve and incorporate more Google services/products in time.
