On Saturday, October 26, 2013 a privacy rally against mass surveillance will take place in Washington, DC.  See It is also a good weekend to check your online fine print privacy settings as both Google and Facebook have made it easier to unmask you this month.

Starting November 11, 2013, Google has decided that it will be able to use your name, profile and content in advertisements or reviews.  To understand how this works and to change your settings to stop it from happening, Google users must uncheck the box next to “Based upon my activity, Google may show my name and profile photo in shared endorsements that appear in ads.”  If you don’t, Google will be able to start using you for “shared endorsements.” 

Facebook in the meantime has made it easier for “tweens” those aged 13-17 to share with the world.  And Facebook has made it easier for people to find you through searches.  See here.
