"Ok, so the point here is that users need to be specific with their searches. Got it. Apologies for the frankness, but if I want to find blowjob images, I now have to search “blowjob porn.” There is now no way that I can edit my own personal settings to make a search for just “blowjob” yield all results, both NSFW and otherwise. Go ahead and try a search for “blowjob” on Google Images right now. Those aren’t really very relevant results, are they? Users should see the most relevant results for their searches, no matter what. And they should have the option to simply turn off the SafeSearch filter, which they all had just a couple of days ago." #Google #butthurt #benevolent_pattern #authority #pub
"The Data Liberation Front is an engineering team at Google whose singular goal is to make it easier for users to move their data in and out of Google products. We do this because we believe that you should be able to export any data that you create in (or import into) a product." _No mention of all the tracked data they have of you, of course. This is mostly data not dealing with how Google actually makes their money. An excellent distraction to help keep many of the people who complain about Facebook et al. docile. #benevolent_pattern #disingenuous #Data #Google #butthurt #pub
