What does G-Mail know about you? Check the Google Dashboard

November 5th, 2009

Now Google allows you to figure out all of the pieces of information they know about you through your Google Dashboard.

I predicted about 2 years ago that Google would be a driving force in aggregating all information about a  person’s Internet persona. This is exhibit A.

While it is currently private, I’m sure some Web 2.0 Exhibitionists would not mind making some of their social prowess public.

I had also predicted that Google could search through its Street View application, and by using simple facial recognition technology ,locate a user in their maps database. Though Google ultimately blurred faces, I can imagine this technology could easily be used to accomplish this end.

Check out this YouTube video explaining it.
