Google Well, here we have another attempt. After the failure of the overly complicated Google Wave (remember that? It was supposed to change the world and all that), Google is undertaking another attempt at social networking. It's called Google+. Update: Forget the crap I wrote here, this article is seven pages on insider information on Google+. Surprised by the beautiful interface? It's been designed by Andy Hertzfeld. The Andy Hertzfeld.

It's all anonymized.


No, it's not. If it were, they would not be able to link your profile to you and targeted advertising would not work.

profile linking is one thing... I do not keep much personal data on Google or Facebook, but Facebook has the ability to hold a lot more personal data than Google... and Facebook leaks your data to third party vendors for cash where as Google does not leak it.

Well, there's a class action lawsuit just getting underway that claims Google did in fact sell Android customer data, including location tracking information, to third party vendors. So I guess it remains to be seen whether Google does leak it or not. At least when it comes to Android.
