Apparently, Google users simply do not care about their own privacy. Microsoft has been running its own campaign to demonstrate what Google does to private data. The software giant believes that if people knew how their personal data is used they would turn to Bing instead. However, it turned out that most Google users are quite happy to let their personal details hit the streets.

In the meanwhile, Stefan Weitz, Microsoft senior director of online services, was trying to put a brave face on for the campaign, claiming that part of the public education program was over. However, Scroogled website is still alive, and this statement doesn’t necessarily mean that Microsoft has abandoned the tagline and the message of the campaign altogether.

The idea first came up from an opinion poll made by the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research. They discovered that 70% had no idea that this practice of scanning emails took place, and they didn’t like what they knew. Microsoft hoped that by increasing public awareness, they can make people hit that cognitive speed bump and reconsider their use of Google’s services.

Apparently, it became fairly clear that getting people to pack in Google was no easier than trying to get others to give up smoking. Microsoft explained that the Scroogled campaign has launched a dialogue which shows how much Internet users care about their privacy, as well as how strongly they feel about Google scanning through their personal emails to sell adverts.

Thus far, more than 3.5 million people visited Scroogled.com, and more than 114k signed a petition to ask the search giant to stop monitoring their Gmail accounts. Microsoft promised that the campaign will continue as long as Google keeps violating privacy.

No avatarWhat's wrong with people who won't respond to this? Is it laziness or fatigue from the amount of information we are bombarded with? If what this article says is true, I will not use google anymore.

madderdan avatarThats funny.
Outlook will also scan your mails.
Just last week I wrote an email talking about an attachment.
But before I could send it, a pop-up asked if I was sure to send, as there were no attachments.

magengar avatarIt's unfortunate that if I wanna continue using Youtube (for showcasing my hobbies and projects)I must go through Google. And then there's Chrome. Wish I knew a way around it all so that I can drop Google altogether.

eNdEmiOn avatarI hate gmail/google these days, but guess what android forces you to get an account. Now it got connected to my youtube account simply because I used the same email address as the backup address for gmail.

Logging into youtube and logging out, keeps you logged in with google.

The email scanning crap.

Luckily you can block a lot of google's privacy infringement but better to just stay away as much as possible. Bing isn't bad as a search engine but is still needs work.
