Want access to all of your Google products, stored info and privacy settings in one place? The new Google Dashboard announced today gives users two things lacking in most online interactions these days: visibility and control.
This video explains more:
As web users and consumers, we should be pushing all web services to provide this level of visibility and control. As web marketers, we should promote transparency, educate consumers and web users about their options, and promote privacy and security best practices. The Google Dashboard seems like a win/win for Google and its billions of users.
I’m sure I’m not the only person that saw the entire list of Google services that I subscribe to (plus the 23 products that are not yet available in the Dashboard) and thought, “Holy crap this company knows a lot about me.”
With this amount of detail about our personal lives, let’s hope G lives up to it’s official motto of “Don’t be evil“.
Bing and Yahoo, Your Turn
Where’s my dashboard? The ball is in your court.
