Everybody who uses the Facebook-app agrees that his/her entire phone book is uploaded to Facebook. This means that even if you're not using Google, not using WhatsApp and don't have a Facebook-account, your name, phone number, birthday and likely your address is already in Facebook's databases as soon as one of your colleagues uses that app - and this WITHOUT even asking you if you agree with Facebook having your data - thank your friends for uploading your data without asking you first. If there are more than two or three of your friends who use the Facebook-app, Facebook is already able to profile you pretty good according to your friends, their friends and all their preferences - without asking you for any agreement for this profiling. Comparing to that, I prefer Google's style of data-collecting since they show you very transparent that and what data they are collecting - and you still can opt out (or even have to opt in in first place) from everything. The true "privacy-enemy" are Facebook and similar, not Google...
The announcement comes as both Facebook and LinkedIn have begun pressing to get more colleges to use their services for student recruiting, albeit not primarily in the undergraduate market that has been Google’s stronghold. Facebook, for example, is working to get colleges to do more with video advertising on mobile devices, focusing especially on colleges that serve adult undergraduate populations or offer master’s and professional degrees.
Hi BKJ84 and others! I M U S T thank you IMMENSELY for this solution. I worket my butt for a whole night fighting EXACTLY the same crap which invaded both IE9 and FF17. Any possible malware remover I could try did not help., although I did manage prior to it to successfully remove ANY program starting with "SWEETXXX" from my hard disk disk via both W7 remover (control panel) anf the free CCleaner "uninstall". in a long prior rush, I had also searched the registry (CAREFULLY!!!!) via W7's genuine Register Editor (Regedit) and found a pile of "SweetIm" occurences. I decided to take one of the FAQ's advices, downloaded Regsweep, and executed it with the keyword "SweetIm". That resulted in killing a few Registry entries, but did NOT remove the stubborn Tab. I also used a very good Freeware, on top of CCleaner, called Wise Registry Cleaner, to clean the regitsty after each consecutive correction act. But I had missed the key step!! You helped me realizing that I HAD NEGLECTED to also remove the DEFAULT DT SEARCH install from the installed W7 program list. I missed it stupidely enough, andi should have sorted the list of installs by date: it would have popped obvious that this WAS the latest install of this malicious suite, which installed against my will during a legitimate freeware download. To make a very long story... a bit shorter, this last removal nixed immediately the "encrusted" TAB from both Firefox and IE9 after a simple re-boot. There is NO NEED whatsoever to reset FF or anything else!! THANKS, Happy New Year, good luck and boo...oes to Sweet-and-sour products!!
Adding an extra layer of two-facedness to life is a step backwards, not forwards, IMHO. Speaking from experience of what it is like to be watched constantly (in a given context, community etc, pre-internet) and the damage done to one's humanity is SEVERE. Or some derivation of 'severe'. This is the thing: depending on how conformist one is [born to be]. Hence why scared, overly-conformist people who think this makes them safe, think that no harm can be done by being watched all the time. They value conformity and don't realise that taking that too far makes humans into robots and creates fascism etc.
The thing is not using Google search doesn't mean your privacy is take back, it just means now you have given it to some other search engine. Really, even if you don't use a search engine you still don't have any privacy. Cameras are everywhere and you buy things in stores, online etc your info is in apps, the government owns you... Everyone owns you to some degree. So you and everyone trying to make Google out as the sore evil above everyone else isn't factual.
I gave Bing a chance because of the rewards. That was a year ago. I learned 2 important lessons over those 12 months: Bing's rewards are terrible, but Bing search results are worse. I am glad to be back to Google search. But I agree with the premise of this article: with so much data running through Google tools, individual privacy is at risk. Time to find a new browser and/or a new search engine.
There are six of those across the entire Fortnite map in season 5, and none of them are especially close together. They are one of the only historical “artifacts” that made their way through rifts for the time travel theme of season 5, along with the Viking Village, and they’ve done relatively little so far other than be a nice source of chests if you come across them.
Lots of terms are thrown around by different car dealerships try to be like AutoMax. In short, “we finance”, “on-the-lot financing”, and “buy here pay here” advertisements all mean the same thing. Auto dealers of all shapes and sizes use these sayings interchangeably to describe the in-house auto financing available to car buying customers at their dealerships. The problem is very few actually offer this type of financing. AutoMax is 100% Buy Here Pay Here 100% of the time. All our cars are Buy Here Pay Here cars. All our customers are Buy Here Pay Here customers. If you come to AutoMax and you are not a good fit for our program will gladly refer to another dealership.
Most people are too usual, too boring as to be of any interest. No one at Google cares what TV-Show average-Joe watches or what mails you write. If you'd stop considering your life or existence "important", you can enjoy everything Google provides for free. The world will be exactly the same 50 years after you have died, nobody's is really important , so stop complaining about someone watching you - nobody gives a sh... about your "secrets"
I totally agree. This page is full of ads. and the reason we were all sucked in to this page was its title. T he whole time I was on this page, ad were loading and trackers were loading in the background. And while my Internet connection may not be gigabit, it's right around 70 mbps. The title may not be click-bait, but it's damn close. Seems like I've read other puerile anti-Google rants VERY similar to this on other sites - sure seems familiar. I had to laugh at the author's suggestion that Wolfram|Alpha is a good substitute for Google. Makes me wonder what the hell he's smoking!
Google is everywhere. It gathers information to power its massive advertising arm. Google is tracking you around the internet, building an individual advertising profile to better serve you ads. Some users don’t mind, reasoning that if they’re going to see ads (advertising essentially powers the internet), they might as well see ones relevant to their interests.
It is also amazing how this article was surfaced via my Google Now because Google knew I was interested in this kind of stuff. If Google was evil, they would never surface this type of article that has a opposite position to Google. Also that Ad shown at the bottom of this article was probably targeted based on Google data which ultimately helps you as the author monetize the traffic you are getting.
“Search Here” is a tab or button which will be added on your web browser if your web browser gets infected some hijack viruses such as Trojan malware. Just the same as other redirect viruses, this “Search Here” redirect virus will hijack the normal function of your browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Bing. Your homepage will be replaced by “Search Here” page with a different interface, search box and operating buttons. Don’t think it can really replace your original search engine. It can only bring you much trouble. It will add more shortcut icons on the search page as if these icons can save your time. In fact, when you click these icons, you will open some odd web sites with a lot of advertisements and illegal promoting links. What is worse, when you open your web browser next time, you will find that your original homepage is completely changed to other sites including “Search Here” page.
