Google+ guides you through its privacy changes, or rather aggregated privacy controls, w/a helpful video. Yet another reason for me to love this platform and point out Facebook’s notoriously shady privacy worst practices. I know people will have a lot of problems with these privacy controls because it will allow advertisers to retarget consumers across the different Google products. But that’s already old news because that’s been going on for awhile. Honestly, I’m not mad at it and my love for Google stays strong…as does my conviction that Facebook, as Major Harris would say, is “bad and sneaky.”
This week’s roundup: the week flew by, I fell in love with no-chip manis, Google debuted personalized search, I cracked open “The Wealth of Nations”, I gave The Atlantic an important Google+ tip (they thanked me on Twitter!) and I watched the first new episode of Ab Fab. Oh and I found Ruby lying on top of a pile of cash.
Google you are so sneaky smart! Google Search has just become more personalized with “Search plus Your World”. What does this mean for marketers? It’s even more important to cultivate brand loyalty and engagement so you don’t get left behind. It also recalls a TED talk from 2011 on popping the search bubble so that you’re results aren’t limited by filters. What side of the debate do you fall on?
