Microsoft Takes A Shot At Google Privacy Concerns In Its New Ad Campaign

Microsoft is running a series of ads in major newspapers this week that take advantage of Google's new privacy policy. The boys and girls in Redmond suggest you ditch Google and use their online products instead.

According to The Verge, the ads will run in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and USA Today. They highlight Google's updated privacy policy, explaining:

"[Google] is making it harder for you to maintain control of your personal information. Why are they so interested in doing this that they would risk this kind of backlash? One logical reason: Every data point they collect and connect to you increases how valuable you are to an advertiser."
