Google Dashboard: What Google Knows about You
Google announced a new service/feature today, Google Dashboard. Given all the services Google offers and all the ways you can interact with Google, it’s not surprising many people have privacy concerns and conspiracy theories (do enough people watch The Simpson’s for me to make an MLB joke here?). Google announced it in a blog post today (Transparency, choice and control — now complete with a Dashboard!) and included a handy video to walk users through the process of accessing Google Dashboard. Dashboard essentially offers a one-stop view of all the data in your Google account across 20 of its services, including Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Web History, Orkut, YouTube, Picasa, Talk, Reader, Alerts, and Latitude.
