Google Dashboard gives control over personal content

Fri, 06 Nov 2009 10:24a.m.
Google is offering a new privacy control that will make it easier for people to see some of the information being collected about them.

The "Dashboard" feature unveiled Thursday pulls together all the data that pour into Google’s computers whenever web surfers log in to one of the company’ services.

That includes summaries of an individual’s e-mail, search requests and viewing habits on Google’s video site, YouTube. Before, a user would have to check multiple places for all that.

The snapshot doesn’t include any activity that occurs when a person isn’t logged into a Google service.

Dashboard represents Google’s latest step to give its users more control over their personal information and appease privacy watchdogs.

So if you can see what is being collected…..can you stop it from collecting as well or not?
Beneficial for some people I guess.
