Google is a mysterious search engine. When you search for something about someone, Google may show you results fast in some cases, but it may also fail to show you results when they should have been displayed in the first place. It emphasizes the fact that Google is quite responsive when it comes to breaking news.
Google can report on anything that has occurred within the last 10 hours or even sometimes quicker than that, but Google does not always show anything when this happens. You may be seeking something specific, but Google’s autocompleting does not provide any suggestions. Google decides what information it displays about a particular incident or person you want to get updates on. If Google can know about something happening so soon, it knows about us where we are and what we are doing, and in case something happens to someone somewhere, it gives the news very soon.
Google’s Speed At Knowing Something
Google takes a keen interest in our whereabouts for two purposes: ad targeting and service development, where location plays an important role.
When Google comes up with a nearly perfect auto-complete for your search query, what’s your reaction? It makes us wonder when Google News brings up relevant stories, but how does Google get to stories we are interested in, and how does it know what we want to know.
Most people find Google news quite impressive and remarkable. Is there anyone who doesn’t want to hear about traffic jams ahead of time? Isn’t it helpful to discover if your preferred dining establishment is now full?
Over 2 billion people use Google devices and its apps installed on their devices. People disable location monitoring to protect their privacy.
Isn’t it possible that turning off location information in Google settings may not work out the way you had anticipated? Assuming you’ve opted out of Google’s obvious Location Record option in your device or account, what happens next?
A Princeton University study found that some Google services continue to store location data without the person’s consent. Google continued to gather data even after the subscriber had blocked location settings.
To shut down “Location History,” you must disable Location History.
Even when a user turned off Google location to protect their privacy, the Princeton researchers found that Google apps kept saving scores of GPS locations about the subscriber’s travels.
Google reacted to AP’s article on the matter. Users’ experiences with their products will be improved if they use geolocation further than the simple settings (location history).
Google knows where we are, so it is not difficult to know what happens to us. It is Google’s choice whether it wants to show the news in Google news about someone or something or whether it does not wish to disclose information as news. It follows its own agenda. It is not sincere and not that good as you think it is. So next time, you better think twice before you are impressed by Google’s speed and knowledge about your whereabouts.
