• Too strong for too long

    Google doesn't just have a finger in every pie, they have a whole hand in every pie. They corner the market on information. If someone has a question about... Anything...Where do they go for answers first? Books? Newspapers? Friends and family? Neighbors? Nope, google. Information is power, and controlling the access to that information is wielding power of titan proportions. And that is only from their searches! Then there's Youtube, Gmail, and Google Drive. And Android. And Chromebooks. And all of it is funneling information in and doling information out. It doesn't matter if they are the best in the business--people need to diversify. Use different search engines. Limit the massive powerhouse.

  • Absolutely WAY TOO MUCH POWER.

    They know every search you've ever typed in. Their search engine is so dominant that to intentionally try to not use it is actually very difficult! For example: try to get rid of the google 'search bar' on any browser, or any new page you open up: there it is, front and center. They also own YouTube and know what you watch there. Then there is Google Maps/Calendar/Photos/Hangouts/Docs/Drive/Android/etc and it is astonishing how pervasive this company is in your life. Android phone tracks where you go through your day, knows the stores you go into, even how long you were in the store. No single private company should have this much information about you. Google needs to be broken up into smaller companies and there needs to be laws put in place to limit what kind of private data Google can have about each enduser of their services.

  • Because It does

    It does in deedleley do so all of you dummies on the other side need to wake up please, k it is just a prank I have to do this because I was ding dong double dared so just ignore me ok then see you on the other side toodles

  • Google decides what you see

    They will tailor your search results in ways that you can't know, so that certain things that you might have been interested in become less accessible. This means that we see more often the things that we already like to see. Opinions get reinforced. Our perspective is narrowed, and on two sided issued surely people will be more polarised.

  • Google has too much power

    Google is creating self-driving cars, internet drones, internet glasses, and has a whole thing like drive, docs, and slides. No search engine has that much stuff. Google seems harmless now, but I feel like they are getting out of control. Who knows how powerful they'll be in 20 years, but it will probably be too much power for one internet company....

  • Yes yes yes

    Google is telling internet shops that they are not allowed to sell CBD oil ( medical cannabis oil) Google is forcing these shops to remove the articles from their site, if not the shops will be removed from google search results. (Medical CBD Cannabis oil is more or less legal in The Netherlands). There are a lot of people that are treating their life threatening diseases with these CBD oils. I could use a lot of different words to describe my feelings but I think you probably know what I mean. So… again…also at Google it is all about the money and NOT about loving people and we probably all know what happens with companies that get detached from their customers….Don’t we ?

  • True Democracy Requires Information. East Timor 1975.

    What gets sent to the top is mass media stories, which are just propaganda framing what the individual is supposed to be discussing. True common sense evolution requires free idea exchange. The internet is making that more and more possible on global scale. We shouldn't fear this change and stay complacent. More important information comes from individuals, not mass corporate sources. Anyone with common sense can ascertain for themselves the weight of the story or facts. Google weighs that for the individual in an archaic way.

  • It's too good!

    When you compare google to other search engines, you see that they really aren't alternatives. I don't get as good and accurate results if I use bing or ask, as with google. The problem is that the way google finds pages for you, stops a lot of pages with the "wrong" links from being indexed at the top. They also collect a lot of information about you, and who knows where that goes...

  • As much power as any other large tech company.

    No, I don't think that Google has too much power because the type of power they have is simply a large scale businesses power. The type of company they are is relatively unique, so competition for Google is relatively slim. The difference being, Google has such a wide breadth of industry influence, they seem to own a large portion of everything we use, but really they just seem that way because of their breadth.

  • No, not yet

    No, Google doesn't have too much power. People tend to get worried when a single company begins to invade their lives to the extent that Google is now. But then again, Google is the only one making the quality products that we want to invite into our lives. As soon as another company makes something better, that company will be invited in and Google will be out. It's the circle of internet life.

  • Knowledge is power, but WHO'S knowledge?

    The only conceivable way for Google to have too much power is for it to have monopoly over all of the information on the web. Even though Google does indeed have a lot of information, without this capability, the government and ISPs also collect the same information, and would continue to do so even if Google didn't have this capacity. Because of this, I think Google doesn't have too much power.

  • Google doesn't have too much power.

    Google has been a successful company that provides aid to people who desire to search the Internet for their personal interests. I believe this is very beneficial to everyone. Of course, they deserve the compensation of their services but also because they reside in a competitive country with a competitive market giving, rightfully giving them the power.

  • NO! Just because Google has too many users does not mean it is too powerful.

    Like another person said, saying Google has too much power is like saying McDonalds has too much power. I'm probably biased by the fact that I use too many Google products in my daily life, like my Nexus 4, but I still believe Google does not have too much power. You could say that Google knows too much about you, but you can decide if you want to tell Google that stuff in the privacy settings in any Google product.

  • No google is not over powered

    Google, as mentioned earlier, is a powerful tool but it not dominating controlling any website. Google dose not steal info, they just provide the link of website, who them self submit their address.
    Google has a lot of employees, but they all work for the betterment of the company, and not for overpowering anyone.

  • No, Google does not have to much power.

    No, I don't believe Google has to much power. I believe there is other company that provide the same things that Google does. If Google was to shut down today. I don't think to many people would mind. Like human nature we would just move on to the next. Google power is controlled by the customers who use it.

  • I think that Google is a powerful tool, but I don't see how it has too much power.

    We all enjoy Google and use it quite frequently. I don't feel like it's some sort of frightening, controlling power that could take over the world. Saying that would be silly. Google is a great tool for all internet users. That would be like saying McDonalds has too much power.
