Google. Who’s looking at you? (Times of London)

Some people say I go a little over the top in my speeches lately about the risks of Google love.
Maybe it’s true. I do however think this is a must read article by John Arlidge in the Times of London.
Google. Who’s looking at you? (Times of London)
“It wants to know everything about you. It wants to be your best friend — or your Big Brother. Are your secrets safe with Google?”
Be careful out there. This article should be must reading in all information literacy education. Our users (and ourselves) should be making conscious choices.
Of course, you don’t encounter these risks with licensed library databases, searches and OPACs.
