Bing's Stefan Weitz, Senior Director, wrote a comprehensive piece on privacy, which is a useful reminder for those that may not put privacy at the top of their list.
It's also about monetization, which is another important aspect to consider.
Most of us here are pretty savvy about these things, and we know it's all about marketing. Most of us have to be our marketers, so we know about the value of users.
Anyhow, read the piece from Bing and let me know what you think?
Now you’ve probably read some of the tech coverage from the conference already, and I don’t need to amplify all their stuff because hey, I work for Bing. But what Google I/O really made clear to us was, under all the technophilia, Google’s main focus is on monetizing its users’ data. They will be paying more attention to your location, analyzing your photos and turning them into animated gifs and they’d like some credit for their innovations while rarely mentioning that all this personal data collection gives them more opportunities to show you ads.Bing On Search, Privacy and Monetization [bing.com]
