QFT

I don't see how cutting out the middle man and letting google find out what to advertise to me with more ease is a good thing...

What's so wrong about seeing adverts for stuff I'm likely to want (but still usually not buy) as opposed to random junk I have absolutely no interest in whatsoever ?

Then again, I don't have a Facebook account either.

The funny thing about all this is people joked about this over the last few years. Some of it in this very forum when Wave, Chrome, ChromeOS happened.

And now that it's happened, people are signing up for it without a second thought.

Not I!

It's funny I was in a Mass media class the other day and we were discussing companies tracking your stats and info. A lot of people a few years younger than me dont have a problem with it or think it's a good thing. Rather they dont care or they like say coupons you get out of it.

I frankly dont understand that point of view. As a customer i'm here to buy something from you not pay you to track me. Kinda like the self check outs... I was unaware that I was paid to be your bagger, and cashier now.

Also I wonder if this is one of those anti argumentum ad populum. Facebook is popular so we must hate it. Google is not popular so must be better.

A.K.A hipster logic.

Privacy and having the scruples to know that postage stamp pictures do not friends make will always trump parasitic social media. But please, feel free to keep sharing. Someones got to make the rounds of failbook or whatever iteration that is to come.

I finally figured out the monocle thing. You need a plug that large to fill the hole left from CCP ****ing your eyes out.

I can see it now, Google doing us favors in the future by outing our every search on the profile, politics, ****... I guess that's about it you might not want to flaunt...

All I can say is it's about time Facebook has some serious competition. I just hope Google learned its lesson from its past failed attempts.

Google is Skynet combined with 1984 and we're all buying into it. When it inevitably goes wrong we'll go "wir haben is nicht gewusst" and the idiocy of the masses, yet again, plunges us into trouble.

Say no to Google!

I have more trust in Google than Facebook aswell. Atleast with my infos I know that only google will control it, unlike facebook where any third party can have access to it.

I hardly ever use facebook anymore, why would I want to use another identical service? Especially now that all my contacts already is using facebook. Only real reason I use it is becuase of some of my family that is not great with computers but after a few years finally managed to use facebook and stay in touch :P

Facebook stoped being useful years ago when it abandoned its goal (and my reason to use it) as a way to share images with your friends.
