Google says this is necessary to make the web surfing experience better. However, in my opinion, it's just one more place big brother steps in. Will it be enough to get me to stop using Google services? Probably not, but in the back of my head I will be cursing their annoying tracking.
What does it mean for you?
So, what does the changes to the Google policies mean for you? Not very much. To "improve" your experience, they will track the sites you use and visit. As a result, they will try to improve your search experience by providing you with websites that will "interest" you when you search for something. So, if you're browsing the Internet just because you're bored, chances are you won't be stumbling across interesting subjects you didn't know about.
And, chances are, your spam emails will increase also as your information is "shared."
But other than that, your experience should be just about the same. Or as Google puts it:
What are your thoughts on Google's new policy changes? Do you feel you will have a better experience with the new policy?
