Google has released a new web campaign specifically to help businesses and consumers so they can have a better understanding of Privacy and the Internet. It is called the Good to Know series. This is the final post of the short blog series posted at Menlo Technical’s blog.
So much misinformation has been put on the Internet, confusing the public (both on purpose to manipulate public opinion and at times manipulate stock prices) that Google went out of their way to actually present helpful and accurate information. Many thanks and kudos to Google for putting this together.
