The Privacy in Google

      Google will start using its users in its advertisements but without the consent of the users. This obviously raises a privacy concern. For instance, if I like a restaurant and express my like using Google’s “+1” button, my like for the restaurant may appear on an advertisement. Marc Rotenberg, the executive director of Electronic Privacy Information Center, said he believes this is a huge privacy concern that is not allowed in multiple states across the US. By default, users are agreeing to this but there is an option to opt of it.
