Google doesn’t respect privacy

Google doesn’t respect it. The online search giant was slapped with $22.5 million fine by the Federal Trade Commission on Wednesday for ignoring the security setting of millions of millions of online users. Google now has a long rap sheet of privacy violations, and this latest fine will likely do little to stop the web giant’s surveillance. The 22.5 million fine by the CFTC is equal to the amount of revenue Google collected in just five hours in 2011.
