I have the same thing. This data is collected via ad views as reported to Google via googleadservices.com's tracking bots. (Yes I know I didn't explain that 100% accurately, don't bother correcting it)

If you're using adblock software in FF, that's why you have no collected data. Or not enough to build a profile.

Speaking of Google, can anybody tell me why I should choose Google + over Facebook? All of my friends and family are on Facebook and it took a long time for a good chunk to take that plunge. Also, it's not like Google is known for their efforts to protect privacy... so what's the point?

I just want viable competition in the market. If one provider dominates the market there's no reason to protect the consumer. If Facebook has a real threat to its customers, my hope (maybe foolishly, I know) is that they'll start being more customer-friendly. Same for Google.

Bottom line is, competition cannot hurt the consumer. I'm the consumer.

And I'm on Google+. ;-)
