We’re getting rid of over 60 differentacross Google and replacing them with one that’s a lot shorter and easier to read. Our new policy covers multiple products and features, reflecting our desire to create one beautifully simple and intuitive experience across Google.
In this internet dependent world, we are giving up more and more of our privacy. Is this acceptable to you? How much do you want people to know about you? For instance, do you want yournumber made public? Do you want businesses to know what color underwear you just bought on a website?
One thing that really bothers me about using Google is the forced advertising. I don’t want to have to sift through a page’s multitude ofjust to get to what I wanted to see in the first place. is getting more and more invasive. It is now being placed inside the content of your search. You are forced to watch the ad before your desired subject comes up. Google claims that it collects information about you to send you ads that will be of interest. Well, I have never seen an ad that interested me. I don’t even want ads. Furthermore, when those annoying forced ads pop up, I close the entire window, opting not to watch either the ad or the content I originally searched. Google – are you listening? You are being counter-productive. People are not watching the ads OR the page they wanted to get to.
How about your photography? Is is becoming easier to steal your images from websites? As a photographer who has had to go after several people/businesses for stealing my images, I am concerned. You may notice the copyright watermarks on the images I post. I hate them. They ruin the feel of the photograph. But I have learned through experience that I must place them on every image I post. I suggest you do the same. I also credit every photographer for each image I use in this blog. This gives credit where credit is due, and it protects the image for that photographer. Please do likewise so we, as a community of photographers look out for each other.
