One of Many Reasons Why I am Gradually Weaning Myself From the Evil Google

“Google Exploits Safari Bug, Tracks Browsing Without Your Consent — AppAdvice http://bit.ly/zO1Rmi”

I “closed” my Google Plus account several months ago. Presently moving my email accounts away from GMail. And several days ago a Blogspot blog gave us pains trying to authenticate Suzy’s WordPress account. Gave up in disgust. She will try barking again later. I am now reluctant to comment on Blogspot blogs. I may find the same problem with ID confirmation.

Since “Don’t be evil” has disappeared from Google’s profile, Google has disappeared from our search engine menu. The disadvantages have begun to outweigh the once thought advantages of Google. Like fookbase, Google could care less about their customers’ privacy.

Over 2/3 of Google+ users are ready to say goodbye to Facebook – TNW Google

Good news from where I sit. Fookbace never really did much for me. Too many people playing games. I sold my farm and moved on. Still waiting to see what Diaspora comes up with. Perhaps G+ until Diaspora gets it together?

Seems like a better way to go to me.

Web users have better social lives, study finds. (Misplaced trust?)

Proud to be among the 8% that do not (no longer) use fookbace and the 13% that use Twitter. Can’t believe that so many trust fookbace with their privacy. Talk about misplaced trust. See that fb is losing members in Canada and the U.S. (http://www.insidefacebook.com/?p=52528) Those ex-members must know something.

Spring Cleaning

Finally deleted our fookbace accounts. Feels great. Now need to weed out tweeters I no longer read. There are only so many news, tech, etc. tweets I need to follow or need to follow me.
