89% of British internet users are worried about online privacy: report

Online privacy and security has always been a concern for internet users and the issue has gained further prominence in the past year due to revelations about governments spying on their citizens.

privacySo email's becoming obsolete, huh?

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said as much last June. And of course, everyone knows younger users don't even use email anymore. (Let's just ignore the fact that you can't open a Facebook account without an email address).

Now, Facebook's set to announce Project Titan on Monday, which is almost universally expected to be an unveiling of Facebook's "Gmail killer" email service.

Privacy advocates arrive in Congress with requests for regulation

In the online battle for privacy rights versus advertising, privacy advocates today drew a line in the sand with requests that Congress draft legislation limiting the practice of behavioral targeting.
