There is a lot of talk regarding privacy and more people are concerned about their searchable online data. Aware of this change in the behavior of its users, Google has recently released a new tool to help control online privacy, called “About me”.

Users can adjust their personal and work contact information, education and employment history as well as the places they have lived. It is also possible to control who sees gender, birthday, occupation, personal websites and social network URLs.

Google explains that all the content on the About Me page is “information that people explicitly provided to Google.” Also noting that “people have control over what information is here and on the About Me page, they can control what others see about them across Google Services.”
