What does G-Mail know about you? Check the Google Dashboard

Now Google allows you to figure out all of the pieces of information they know about you through your Google Dashboard.

I predicted about 2 years ago that Google would be a driving force in aggregating all information about a  person’s Internet persona. This is exhibit A.

While it is currently private, I’m sure some Web 2.0 Exhibitionists would not mind making some of their social prowess public.

I had also predicted that Google could search through its Street View application, and by using simple facial recognition technology ,locate a user in their maps database. Though Google ultimately blurred faces, I can imagine this technology could easily be used to accomplish this end.

Check out this YouTube video explaining it.
