Yes. I enable most of the tracking features on my Android/Google powered devices. I find that they really do improve my experience, especially on my phone and tablets. I pretty much only use Google's features though. I do not participate in goetagging photos on Facebook, using Foursquare, or other social networking services that are available to the general public. But I do use services likie Google Latitude with location history enabled, and I use that to keep track of things like how often I spend out vs at home or at work, etc.

At the same time, I am very careful about which online services I use, who I allow to track me, using encryption and other technologies to keep my info private, etc. So while I have absolutely no qualms about being tracked by certain services I have opted into, I am also very careful about which information is accessible to other people, and I do everything in my power to make it difficult for anybody to obtain information about me without my knowledge or consent.

I'm fine with being tracked. It enriches my social experiences. If a company wants to know where I am, then they're welcome to. :p


Same here.

Where it's possible to disable tracking, I do so
