Re: facebook antritrust
That stuff always scares me!

You never really know what you're agreeing to unless you sit there and read the whole thing..but who really does that? We have to start being more careful, however what we agree to especially online.

Re: facebook antritrust
I agree, Mike. I do those things, too (delete cookies, clean my cache) but I know I'm being tracked...and it's just like anywhere else, most of us aren't reading the fine print anyway (look at all that tiny text on your iTunes agreements! They could slip anything in there...) about how our information is being used.

Yes, facebook uses info to advertise, but so does Google...and I think most people would say that the pleasure is much greater than the pain of seeing ads when it comes to using things like facebook or gmail...

Hopefully Zuckerberg can smooth things over...

Re: facebook antritrust
@Mike I think a lot of us who work and play online walk that fine line between protecting our privacy and accepting the inevitable.

How would a competitor make the situation better in this case?
Facebook's monopoly of the social media landscape doesn't necessarily mean it would be doing anything differently with its privacy settings if there were a similar competitor in the market. If LinkedIn or Twitter or Tumblr were bigger, would Facebook magically make its policies better? It might even make them worse so that you couldn't switch platforms.

Re: facebook antritrust
I agree that it's up to individuals to stay on top of their info and privacy, but I think most people don't bother. I clean cache and delete cookies, but when I'm signed into my gmail account it's a given that my Internet activities are being tracked.

Re: facebook antritrust
I would disagree that Facebook is a flat out distructive entity, but I would have to agree with you that it is ultimately up to the individual to protect and monitor their own privacy if they are going to be sharing information online.

I don't think it is a big deal because to me you can't trust no one with your data information so to me no one can be trusted and another thing is facebook is destructive and the only thing positive about it is that is great for adverting and promoting businesses.
