Pay-for-Data Panel Already Full
ONLINE PRIVACYFebruary 10, 2012
In a Forbes feature, Kashmir Hill writes about the recent announcement that Google will begin paying Chrome users who sign up to participate in a panel allowing the company to track their web activities. Users will receive up to $25 in gift card codes per year, the report states. "So your online privacy over a yearlong period is worth a little bit less than a six-pack of Marshmallow Fluff--$26.75," Hill writes. The panel is already full, the report states, noting Google has announced, "We appreciate and are overwhelmed by your interest at the moment. Please come back later for more details."
