Google exposed the private data of hundreds of thousands of users of the Google+ social network and then opted not to disclose the issue this past spring, in part because of fears that doing so would draw regulatory scrutiny and cause reputational damage, according to people briefed on the incident and documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

I read something about this this morning. Did they not say they are shutting down Google+ ??

Skhilled

Yes, must have been awhile back.

I had Google stop tracking me a long time ago..

Skhilled

I'm in the process of changing all of my accounts that have a google email to another one.

Bigguy

I might have to do the same. Google does do waaay to much tracking imho.

Skhilled

I didn't say which account I'm changing to in case they are reading this! LMAO

Bigguy
