And Now, For No Particular Reason, a Rant About Facebook

The vast majority of people with Facebook accounts, grandmas and otherwise, are not Facebook’s customers. Advertisers are Facebook’s customers. Facebook app developers are Facebook’s customers. Everyone else on Facebook is a product whose personal information can be milked for those customers’ benefit.

An excellent blog post – with some truly acerbic comments; of which I loved this one particularly. Polite hat tip to Chris (@ninthspace) for allrting me to this.
