Google updates privacy policies – worried much?

By | January 28th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , |

Google announced a few days ago that they are updating their privacy policies. They are now also sending out emails to everyone with a Google account, how much more upfront can they be and still people think they are hiding something. The changes come into effect as from the 1st of March but already people are voicing their concerns on Facebook and Twitter. One person said they will feel like they are being watched all the time, they said this publically on a twitter account with many followers :) Google amalgamated all policies into just one privacy policy, to make it easier for everyone. They say that they are creating one experience  - You log into Google Account and all of your accounts become one -  your Gmail - Search - You Tube and Calender.  In short, all of the information from these Google products will be shared with each other, to enable Google to understand us better and to help our searches be more accurate and target us with better ads. I love Google - Google+, Youtube, Gmail, and everything that goes with [...]

Facebook now have to sort out privacy say FTC

By | November 30th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , |

The Federal Trade Commission said Facebook's claims about its privacy policies were unfair and deceptive and violated federal law. The Federal Trade Commission works for consumers to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices and to provide information to help spot, stop, and avoid them. The FTC have ruled that Facebook will now be required to obtain approval from users before making any changes to privacy settings or how data is shared and also stop anyone accessing a deleted account within 30 days of its deletion. This is good news. Isn't it what we said all along, opt in, not opt out!   I am not against Mark Zuckerberg or Facebook but they really need to listen to the users.  From what I've seen they aren't good listeners. In Mark Zuckerberg's blog post today he actually said... Overall, I think we have a good history of providing transparency and control over who can see your information. REALLY?  He still doesn't see that people were confused about keeping certain data or information private, or what was being shared. Then it was changed and private information suddenly [...]

Did Google+ help with the Facebook improvements

By | August 24th, 2011|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: , , , , , |

Yesterday The Facebook Blog  announced on a very mixed up post that they are making a "bunch of improvements" so that it is easier to share our posts and photos.   These improvements are starting to roll out over the next few days - you'll know when you have them as you will see a prompt for a tour, which might not be a bad idea to do.  Hopefully I can make it clearer for you what the changes are. Photos and Posts Facebook are making the sharing options next to the posts and photos on a drop down menu instead of being on a settings page. These options were there already just not in the right place.  There are also more changes to help with privacy and sharing.  Which does make it look a little bit more like Google+ but I'll leave that for you to decide. Profile This will help with people understanding who they share with, right here on your profile it actually says who are you are sharing this information with - I like this! Photo [...]
