: It's not just about the ads. Yes, obviously, that's apart of it, but moreover this is Google moving forward with their vision of their company as one unified path instead of several dozen little projects going in separate directions. Facebook was slammed because it more or less ignored your privacy settings and decided that everything you did anywhere should be everyone's business. Google here is basically sharing your information with...itself. What Facebook did and what Google is
doing are totally different things, which is obvious when you read the policy for yourself.
