Google (Score: 2, Interesting) by Anonymous Coward on 2014-04-28 15:02 (#17V) It's interesting, I agree with the poll that Google makes the appearance to be way more capable and responsible to handle your data than all the other companies. Even though they're a datamining company, most people are not worried about them but have usually huge reservations about facebook, yahoo and microsoft.Why is it easier to trust Google?

Also, despite all the Google-hate, they do generally do a lot more stuff that is good for the 'net at large than the other companies on the list, so even if you don't trust them outright there is probably at least some feel-good factor at play.

Its really my own website is #1, and everything else is far, far behind. However, in order to rank them, I just considered how much data I currently store in each one. Figuring, that over time I already made the decision of which I trust. I'd prefer not to have to trust any of them, If I didn't have to.
