Google web products have become essential to the ways I process and share information. Thanks to tweets from ALA_TechSource and B Ahrens today I learned about the Google Dashboard. It provides not only an overview of the different Google services utilized and connected to a particular Google Account, but also enables privacy and sharing options for these services to be changed.
This 2.5 minute video provides an overview of Google Dashboard.
Learn more about the Google Dashboard by reading Jacqui Cheng’s article for Ars Technica, “What Google knows about you and how to tweak it.” Google’s Privacy Center provides a wealth of information related to digital citizenship and Internet safety as well that’s worth checking out. The Google Privacy YouTube channel has 49 videos (as of this writing) focused specifically on privacy issues.
