Daily Talker: Are You Concerned That Google Is Looking At Your Personal Email?

We know the NSA is doing surveillance but some say what Google is doing is way worse. There are nearly 50 million Gmail users in the country. Many do not realize that when they open an account they give permission for Google to eavesdrop. That information is used to figure out what ads users might be interested in. Scott Cleland wrote a book about Google’s power. He says the company has more personal data on people than the NSA. In an interview with CBS News Cleland said “If an American knew, literally, that someone knew every place they went, everybody they were talking to, where, when and however, they would freak out.” We want to know what you think. Are you concerned that Google is looking at your personal email? Do you think the company should be allowed to monitor what you’re writing?
