Google Google has updated its privacy policy - in fact, it has consolidated a mess of over 70 different privacy policies each covering an individual service into one, simpler policy. You'll now be treated as a single account, and data will be shared between Google services to make search results and ads more personalised (I assumed they already did that - makes sense).

Facebook and anybody else should have the right to not share data with Google


They have that right, they exorcised their data from Google.

without Google artificially demoting their search results

Which is exactly the problem, how does Google with its algorithm ‘fairly’ rank data that’s opaque to them.
These companies cannot have it both ways.
