I can remember when the sole purpose of Facebook was to see which girls were in the same classes with you for each new semester. I think I may have even chosen a few courses based on that.

This is nothing new. RM has been mining and selling personal data for years. How do you think we run this place without advertising or sign up costs?

There was another tweet storm about how the real story here is how Facebook is controlling content producers, especially news outlets. Why should we care about the bottom line of these content producers more than the privacy implications for individuals? Seems like a weird conventional media take.

Since we're talking about it:

Bing [Bot], Google [Bot]

Who the hell are these guys? ("Hur, they're bots" gee, thanks.)
