Google gives you Administrative power via GOOGLE DASHBOARD

Google has recently launched a new tool called Google Dashboard. Till date, what was limited only to Google Staffs, is now under everyone's reach. Google's gregarious tools are just irresistible and everyone who used it once in a while must have wondered about their data and information scattered all over the Google apps.

Guys, worry no more. Here is the Google Dashboard. According to Google's blog,
"Google Dashboard is a new service that shows a summary of the data stored with a Google account. The dashboard lists some of the information associated with the Google services you use: your name, your email address, the number of contacts, the number of conversations in your Gmail inbox, your Google profile, the most recent entries from the web history etc. It's a long answer to the question: "What does Google know about me?".




Well, that's simply what Google Dashboard is about. I just dug into it and it gave me full control over how I use my information on Google Apps. For some unknown reasons(at least to me), even after I logged into Gmail,and then hit the www.google.com just to check if I'm in Google's Personal Page(Yes I was) and later found myself being asked my password again when I tried to access the Google's Dashboard. I didn't get that part but anyways, after I signed in, I saw more comprehensive information about my web usage, email habits, things about other services that I used like YouTube,Google Calendar,docs etc etc. Dashboard also let me delete and manage all the information related, clear history, change personal information, cache etc etc. There are more functions on dashboard and you really need to be there to get the clue of what the heck I'm talking about.

I think Google addressed it's user's privacy concerns which were related to Google's collection of data about it's user's online habits via Google Dashboard.

You can access your dashboard from www.google.com/dashboard
or
simply from your Google's personal page-->Settings-->Google Account Setting-->Under Personal Account-->Click the link to Dashboard.
