Google is getting too big for it's britches. It's gotten worse since they took over Youtube. It seems like every week the idiots are coming up with features or background designs that (*)(*)(*)(*) users off. And THAT has gotten worse over the last few months. You should see the Youtube feedback boards. Posters are posting everything except death threats against the site designers.

Unlike your browser, where you can clear your history, or disallow tracking cookies... Google is now going to save all our surfing history, and apparently there is not a thing we can do to prevent it (other than completely stop using it).
**It's interesting that this came about on the heels of all the SOPA uproar.** Haha
...I guess folks can't have things both ways.
hope they don't publish my searches with my facebook profile , i will never get a job again.

If you log in are you traceable via all these different sites under one umbrella? If for example, people log onto Facebook, will it display their youtube account or other sites?
Also Facebook is downloading a Timeline showing activity dating back years. I checked someone out today and it shows when they moved house to a new location and other things I think they would faint if they knew were public.
Honestly I'm thinking of closing my FB account. But I have done that before after having a problem with some loons on a political forum (no offence) and it still sits there. The security arrangements on FB are so deliberately convoluted half the people don't know how to even use the privacy settings. I think it's potentially really dangerous.
Maybe we should all go back to America OnLine now, they keep search histories for only 3 months, they say. (Which is probably why they are the most hacked ones too.)
I thought the new privacy infringement policy was/is slated to roll out March 1st., but I think they are already implementing it.
Have any of you other Gmail users noticed an increase in the amount of spam you are receiving?
I have, and can correlate them to specific searches I have typed into Google.
Was just curious, any feedback welcome.
Search for xyz...guess what's in your mail box soon after?
Yep, and offer for xyz.
Now, if they bank my search history, are they also capable to do so with my passwords, any private numbers...?
Let me ask again, what can we do about it?
What are the alternatives?
