PRIVACYOctober 24, 2011
The Hill reports on the selection of Anne Toth as head of privacy for the Google+ social network. Toth recently announced her departure as head of privacy at Yahoo, and Google confirmed on Friday that Toth would begin her new role with Google+ this week. "Google agreed to implement a comprehensive privacy program in March as part of a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission related to the rollout of Google Buzz," the report states, noting that while Toth will be head of privacy for Google+, Alma Whitten will remain director of privacy for product and engineering, leading companywide privacy efforts.
