GOOGLE-EVIL AT IT AGAIN: BEWARE THE IDES OF 11/11/13!

As far as I can tell, this only applies if you use Google+, which I don’t & never have. But if you do, time to read up:

10/11/13: “Google to Sell Users’ Endorsements” – NYTimes.com:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/12/technology/google-sets-plan-to-sell-users-endorsements.html

Creepy info re Facebook in that NYTimes article as well. I don’t use FB either. Yuk! Here’s another link re the same story:

10/11/13: “Google Plans to Use Our Pictures to ‘Endorse’ Ads, Here’s How to Opt-Out” – The Mac Observer:

I wish I didn’t even use Gmail, but at least I don’t do searches while logged in to Gmail webmail (their webmail I rarely use anyway, only via Mail app); nor have I given Goog any ID Photos nor real names at sign up (email addy acts as Name). I never fill out “profiles” for anything, nor street addresses, nor participate in surveys, petitions, etc. Commenting at youtube I have done plenty of &, of course & unfortunately, you have to log in to Goog to do that, but not under Google+, AFAIK.

The only way to survive the privacy invasions & stay online & not be sold out by Big Brother Corporations like Goog & FB is just to lay low & be “wise as a serpent, yet innocent as a dove.”

I’m always shocked how many people use their real names all across the internet. SMH. Pick & use an ID like LawnMowerMan or FlowerGirl or whatever, but never your real name. If you’re a business, though, that’s a different story. Transparency is a must if you’re running a business.
