Google worse than NSA

Why is it that everyone has a problem with the NSA, but they don't seem to have a problem with Google? Google violates your privacy by scanning your calendar, posts, files, email, etc., and by tracking your browsing history. Plus they keep track of all of your search results and build profiles about you. This is just as extensive (if not more) than what the NSA does. Everyone who cares about privacy should check out some of the new privacy-based services that have started to pop up: Ravetree, HushMail, DuckDuckGo, etc.

What about Google?

I find it curious that more people aren't pointing this out: Everyone is outraged by all of this government spying, but we don't seem to have a problem with Google. I would argue that Google is much worse for our privacy than the NSA or other government spying agencies. For this reason, I advocate using privacy-based sites such as Ravetree, DuckDuckGo, HushMail, etc. We probably can't hide from the NSA, but we can hide from Google.

Google worse than NSA

Okay, so what about Google? Shouldn't Google's violations of our privacy be illegal? If you have a problem with how the NSA has violated our privacy, then you should also have a problem with how Google is destroying our privacy. Personally, I think everyone should start using privacy-based sites such as DuckDuckGo, Ravetree, HushMail, etc. The NSA is different because we don't really have a choice there, but we do have the freedom to choose whether or not we use Google, Facebook, etc.

Google is freakin terrible

Google is getting worse and worse with each passing day. If you're still using google products, then I recommend you do some serious soul searching. People who use google are supporting a culture that says its okay to violate our privacy. Please don't support them or Facebook, or any other company that makes money from collecting our personal information. Instead we should be using sites that don't violate our privacy such as Ravetree, HushMail, DuckDuckGo, etc.

Worry more about google

I'm sure they'll fix the problem, but what about when Google or Facebook gets hacked? Just think about all of the personal information they collect about you. This isn't limited to information you give them. They track your browsing history and have information about every website you visit. When that information gets hacked and distributed to your friends, family, and colleagues, then you will be ruined. This is why I'm a strong advocate for using privacy-based sites such as DuckDuckGo, Ravetree, HushMail, SnapChat, etc.

We keep learning more and more about how our privacy is being violated by facebook and google. We shouldn't tolerate this anymore. If you haven't already done so, you should consider using privacy-based sites like DuckDuckGo, Ravetree, and HushMail. Don't believe the propaganda that "privacy is dead." That's just what they want us to think. We're smarter than that.

Privacy is more important now than ever before. We may not be able to hide from the NSA, but we can stop using sites like Facebook and Google. Just think about it. If you care so much about your privacy, if you are outraged by all of the NSA spying, then WHY are you using facebook and google. Those companies are just as bad, if not worse, than the NSA. This is why I advocate using privacy-based sites such as DuckDuckGo, Ravetree, HushMail, etc.

I find it interesting how so many of the same people who are against the NSA spying are also using facebook and google. There's an argument to be made that those companies are much worse than the NSA. If you don't want to be a hypocrite, then quit google and facebook and switch to privacy-based sites, such as Ravetree, DuckDuckGo, HushMail, etc. You may not be able to get away from the NSA, but at least you can prevent google and facebook from exploiting the crap out of you.

Zuck you! Facebook introduces 'Dislike' button... in Messenger

Facebook = AOL

Really, nobody cares. Other sites have had this feature for a long time. Facebook in rapidly on the decline, with users moving to more privacy oriented products such as SnapChat, Ravetree, and WhatsApp.

This isn't going to help fb one bit. Teens aren't using fb anymore. Only old people are using it, which is interesting because they should know better. For some reason it is younger people who have a greater appreciation for privacy. Just look at the rise of SnapChat, Ravetree, WhatsApp, DuckDuckGo, etc. We are smart enough to know that facebook is just trying to collect as much personal information about us as they can.

We Don't Want Google+!

Nobody wants google+. We don't want google trying to shove this service down our throats. People are starting to wake up to googles terrible privacy. We should start telling our friends and family about privacy-based alternatives such as DuckDuckGo, Ravetree, HushMail, etc.

Check out The Register's Google+ page

No

I don't want to use google+. I left facebook because of privacy, and I definitely won't make the same mistake by joining google+. But, if you create a page on Ravetree, then I'll check it out.

The only people who use google+ are programmers who think google is god. You know who I'm talking about - the cool hipsters with tight jeans, the feminine guys with thick-rimmed glasses. They are the most ignorant people on the planet. Intelligent people don't use google services at all. Instead, we use sites/products that protect our privacy such as Dolphin browser, HushMail, Ravetree, and DuckDuckGo.

Wake up people!

I think everyone should stop being an idiot and quit using sites like facebook and google - sites that totally rip off your personal information. There are lot's of great alternatives to choose from that offer great privacy and respect your personal information. Here are just a few: DuckDuckGo, Ravetree, HushMail, etc. Really, stop being a complete moron. Be wise and take control of your personal information. Many of the privacy-based alternatives I have found are better anyway.

Freedom to choose

You have the freedom to choose what sites you use. It turns out that there are some really goods sites that have been addressing the issue of privacy: Ravetree, DuckDuckGo, HushMail, and many others. I don't use facebook, and I'm definitely not going to use google+, because they are such bad violators of our privacy.

Stop using facebook!

If you care about privacy, then you will stop using facebook. If you really care about privacy, then you won't use google either. Where to go? Try Ravetree, DuckDuckGo, HushMail, etc. They offer great services and they don't violate our privacy.

Instead of "CREEPILY SPECIFIC AD-GLOOP" you could use Ravetree - a social network that doesn't have ads.
