Google has recently announced that they have changed their privacy policies and terms of service. Starting March 1, Google users will be agreeing to share their personal information across all Google services as long as they are signed in. In the past, Google has had 60 separate privacy policies and now they have been consolidated to just one.
Some people are worried about whether this is an abuse of power and others believe that their privacy is being violated. Personally I like the fact that Google makes it easy to “hide personal results” (i.e. Google+ updates) from their search results. If it was forced upon me and I couldn’t get rid of it, then I think it would be an abuse of power.
