point is. is try stay away from things that sparkle..not everything that glitters is gold.
i see here people on G+ slating google and how they are evil and sneaky ..lol.. on google plus? what makes them think thier posts and +1's arnt subject to adverts and private data being sold to the highest bidder? or those defending it who could be, for all we know, oblivious to what happens behind the scenes?
I think all corporations have an agenda..to make money. God knows what tehy want to do wtih all that money, but there are things we the common people are unaware of but think we know it all.
my point is, id rather be paranoid and hopefully safe..than be trusting and a target to whatever it may be.
