Lesson 1.9

The World of Google


Most of us don’t ever question Google. We type in our search, hour after hour, day after day, week after week, and we trust the answers Google gives us. Absolutely every time we want to know something, we Google it. If we stop to think of a big and powerful business, we think of Google. And even if we want to know the history of Google, we just Google it. But what about all those other search engines? Why would someone ever want to use another search engine? Is it possible that Google really spies on me or my search history? Does Google really know everything about me?

The answers to some of these questions may surprise you.
