Google announces new privacy changes across products; users can’t opt out http://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...cant-opt-out/2012/01/24/gIQArgJHOQ_story.html Basically what this means is that if you have a Gmail account, whenever you do a search for something in regular google search or youtube, it will track and record everything you do if your still logged in. The finest example is YouTube. I've went from YouTube (while in my email) and noticed that Google had me logged in YouTube under my email account. Honestly, that really pisses me off because I did not log into YouTube by choice and do not want them logging me into YouTube without my permission. I basically have to log out of that google account just to log into the YouTube account I originally created before google bought YouTube. This is not good news no matter how you cut it because not only do they log you into the sites they bought and added to their network without your permission, they are building personal profiles with your information without your permission and you can't opt out. I am now going to search for another email provider and ads network. I'm not making much from adsense anyway so it's no sweat off my back.
