Does Google Know Everything

By
Real Estate Agent with Sailwinds Realty

I went to do a Google search this morning, and this is what came up. Does this mean that Google knows it's my birthday? That's kind of scary. Think about it--does Google know everything about us?

I had Craig do a search on his computer and there weren't any cakes or cookies.

 

birthday cakes

I think it's a little scary to know that everything is out there. There are no more secrets.

Thank you, Google, for the birthday cakes.

Hi Toni,

When you filled out your Google Profile you added your birthday in it. This is why they know.You can remove your birthday from your profile or enter a bad actual birthday or year.

Happy Birthday in Trinity.

Best, Clint McKie

Joan - I intend to! Thank you.

Thank you, Lisa.

Clint - I realize that, but I did a Google search which I would think they wouldn't bother on an individual. Thank you.

Kristin - these days; there is nothing private anymore.

Toni,

Yes, but they still don't tknow our birthdays...we never put them on line anywhere on any social media...Google gleans all type of info.  We put the webinar announcement on Linked In, and every speaker, author, expert in the universe wanted to be our connection on Linked In, and then came all the web experts and web marketing experts...

Happy Birthday, from the two of us, and may I suggest that you celebrate the rest of the week, we strongly recommend celebrating birth month...A

That is crazy! If you are logged into gmail, youtube or any google owned company I guess they would know. Computers are so helpful but it's somewhat scary, if google knows, it's stored somewhere and can be hacked.

Howdy and evening Toni

Toni my AR friend, will it sure was mighty nice of Google to give you a Birthday wish of Cakes on your computer to enjoy looking at. All one has to do is give their Birth Date on one site and it goes out every where. Any site which makes folks put their Birth Date to register, I never give my real Month, Day or Year of it. 

Happiness sure is Homemade
Have a good one

Happy Birthday, Toni, and yes.  They do know everything about us.  A couple of  years ago near my own birthday date I went to use the ATM at my bank and on the screen popped up Happy Birthday greetings from Wells Fargo and images of balloons.  Freaked me out, too.
