GeekBoy, 29 Sep 2018So because Google gives you something what you like you are... more"So because Google gives you something what you like you are ok to share personal information with them?"

Basically, yes. It's the price that I'm paying so that Google can generate revenue and keep improving their products. If the Google and all its products suddenly disappeared, it would greatly affect my day-to-day life. I'd have to learn to use a new browser which I wouldn't like, I would have to start using different mail with less features, I would have to use some different mediocre translator, I would have to start using an inferior map search engine, I'd have to use Bing with less relevant results, I couldn't use the google docs/onedrive, I'd have to intricately search for the research works without google scholar etc. etc. Meanwhile if Facebook suddenly disappeared, I wouldn't give a rat's a**. I'd just download a new chat engine that people would hook on - oh wait, actually most people would just migrate to Google Plus, since it's basically the same thing and the only reason why people don't use it is because they already have Facebook.

GeekBoy, 29 Sep 2018So because Google gives you something what you like you are... moreGoogle even tracks you with your GPS off, even if you did not consent to turn on location history. And even if you turn off your device. Every Android is tracking machine and Google monitors whatever you do.
Ever since I have an iPhone I am not using a single Google app.
I know that Apple probably gathers information too, but it is known that they are generally less interested in what you do than Google. And yes, they definitley do gather at least something. To make Apple ID alone, they ask you to give them lots of your personal info.
If you do not want something to be known - do not put it on internet or in any app.

My cat is such a big Facebook fan. She is on it everyday sharing pics of her and her friends. Keeping them updated to the second about what she is doing, where she is going and who she is meeting. The whole world is captivated by her life. If not Facebook then how is she going to keep her friends updated?

Google actually have more info about you than Facebook. Facebook is different than Google and I'm not trying to compare who is giving what but in who is collecting info about people.
I just don't understand people who says - I'm deleting Facebook etc but still keep using other social media apps.

I already deactivated my Facebook account 2 years ago due to the fact that it would make me so unproductive in several ways.

Dominique, 29 Sep 2018And you don't have any email nor using smartphone?Every android phone user already has Gmail. At least Google is 1000x more proactive than Facebook and Yahoo in patching vulnerabilities.

GeekBoy, 29 Sep 2018Do you think Google is better? Nothing is safe in internet.... moreI hate the comparison between Google and Facebook. Look at what Facebook does and what Google does. It's hard to even count all the innovations that Google does that makes people's lives easier - look at Google maps, Google translator, Google scholar, Google image searching improving all the times, look at Android/Google Play/Waze, Google docs/drive, Gmail obviously, Chrome itself which is getting upgraded all the time and lets you easily customize it for your likings. What Facebook does? The only innovation I've noticed in past couple of years from them is that they've introduced this "suggested post" on your feed which is un-blockable by AdBlock - if you try to, it hides your entire feed. It's really just a communication tool which abuses its popularity. I don't feel like I'm getting any extra value from Facebook over using ICQ back before it. The only reason why I'm using Facebook is because most of people I know have it - if there was a way to communicate with people on Facebook without having profile myself, I'd have deleted it a long time ago

So yes, even though Google does obviously collects my data, I'm entirely ok with it because I'm getting back way more than I "pay" for. With Facebook, I feel more like a hostage.

The Pentagons choice app...

I got rid of Facebook long ago. I keep convincing new people to get rid of Facebook all the time, most of them listen too.

Facebook is dead, and for good!

P.S. I don't care that you don't care about me not caring about Facebook. So please don't care to reply to me telling me that you don't care. Thanks.
