I think personally Google gets a bad rap by a media industry jealous of their success, and that the majority of customers are sending their data to Google's servers for good services.

But, saying that breaking them up would only make them invade privacy more in your view, that's the view of someone in an abusive relationship. Whether or not Facebook and Google are violating your privacy rights should be a separate question that calls for other regulatory action, regardless of the entity's size. We need to have both conversations.

Disclaimer: I work as a lowly grunt for Google, but my opinions are my own and do not represent them.
