in which we discuss that site

May 10, 2010

Okay – let’s discuss Facebook.

There’s been so much said recently about privacy and social networking.

Personally – I’m don’t spend that much time on Facebook because I try to focus the ideas I want to push out into the world here on my blog.  But I know a LOT of people who are on all the time for both work and personal reasons.

More power to you.  But before you get too upset about the continued erosion of your privacy please pay attention to what Tim Spalding of Library Thing said…

Why do free social networks tilt inevitably toward user exploitation? Because you’re not their customer, you’re their product.

Remember that.

just saying

Night.
