On Friday Paul at the studio called me into his office and showed me this picture he saw on Google Maps. Yes, it was a picture of my grain truck and John Deere 820 sitting in downtown Faribault. It was taken in 2014 when Central Avenue was under construction. How is it possible for my truck and tractor to be on the internet when I did not put it there? What else does Google know about me and would be on the internet?

I have been hearing on the news about Google being able to manipulate what shows up when you do a search about something or topic. Plus, I have heard how Google remembers if I do a search about maybe a car. Then when I am on a web site I use for market information ads start popping up with cars for sale. This data is valuable information. It make you wonder what Google knows about you that you don't even know?
