Google has more information on you than Facebook, but users and investors don’t seem to mind | CNBC

Google has more information on users than Facebook, notes one venture capitalist.

“If you think Facebook knows a lot about you, try Google,” Kevin Landis, CEO and chief investment officer of Firsthand Capital Management, told CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Monday. “They know every search you’ve ever made and everywhere your Android phone has ever been.”

Despite people’s fear of privacy disclosures after the Facebook data scandal, users and investors alike don’t seem to mind Google harvesting their data. Google’s parent company Alphabet on Monday reported first-quarter earnings that beat expectations on earnings per share, revenue and operating income.

 “People trust Google more than Facebook,” Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, a former data scientist at Google, told CNBC’s Kelly Evans at the Sohn Conference on Monday.
