I have been going to the site of Dr Mercola for years. Reason I like the way he researches and finds alternative medicines, exercises, and like today important information that will affect our lives. I believe he is so right about this subject on Google. It is dangerous and manipulative, way more that we want our children and Grandchildren’s life to be affected. Please listen to what he has to say and think long and hard about making some changes in your life. Getting rid of Google and facebook for that matter and rid Gmail as it is a threat to our (not mine so much as I am closer to pushing up daisies) children’s freedom. Most will read this and think ho hum, but be warned.
“If you don’t do different nothing will change”
- More than half of American K-12 schools use Chromebooks and Google apps, allowing Google to build brand loyalty from an early age
- Google’s primary business is tracking, compiling, storing and selling personal data. By capturing children at an early age, it will be able to build the most comprehensive personality profiles of the population ever conceived
- By the time these children have grown into adulthood, every single preference, thought, belief and proclivity will be known about them, which will make them extremely vulnerable to manipulation
- Google allows hundreds of third-party software developers to access the emails of Gmail users, and they’re not just using software to scan for keywords. In some cases, employees are actually reading the emails
- By default, Google Chrome allows any and all tracker cookies to follow your every move online
