I know that I benefit from Google and make money through Google, but I'm not okay with Google tracking my history in order to sell it to an advertiser. Guess I'll be using Bing. Anyone else concerned?
I'm not really concerned because, as a web publisher and researcher, my web history is of no use to anyone. Advertisers will not be able to accurately target my interests, because they won't know them - they may mistake my work for my interests, and the two aren't necessarily the same thing.
I am more concerned about Twitter selling access to old Tweets, that the general public don't have access to - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17178022
Wow. That is no cool. No Google and no Twitter, at least not if you want any kind of privacy. That sucks!
Like google, bing is also after user data. So sites like ixquick, duckduckgo and scroogle are much better. As twitter selling tweets, that's harmless compared to google creating personal profile of people and tracking their likes and information. There are more people on google and android compared to twitter, so damage is more with google.
I wonder if we'll see a surge in Bing/Yahoo traffic over the next few days while people protest! I guess most won't care or don't realize what is happening though!
As for my personal traffic, I guess sellers of Adult products may be interested
