Google Drive? Er, thanks, but no thanks (things to consider)

Use Google Drive… ? Oh sure, use it:

If you want Google to be able to use, re-use, and plagiarize your work.

If you are ok with Google claiming rights to use your work and content in its ads or potentially make it public to the world (if you forget to flick a certain setting).

If you are ok with Google scanning and analyzing the information you store with them for anything from ad targeting to building a profile on you for selling/sharing with advertisers and marketeers.

In short, use Google Drive if you really don’t give a damn about your privacy, your intellectual property rights, or pretty much anything else you might naturally and reasonably assume a company ought not be able to do with YOUR stuff.

As for me? Er… thanks, but no thanks.
