Facebook, what evil lurks?

Well, having read through a lot of stuff about Facebook and their tracking system Beacon – which basically follows what you do on the Internet (not only what you do on Facebook!) and reports it back to Facebook, the disenchantment with Facebook is gathering pace rapidly over in this corner. I like the idea behind Facebook, and I think it has its uses – notably for finding friends you haven’t talked to in ages… but at the same time, as a magazine here in Finland stated – “we’ve already trivialized love – now with Facebook, we’re trivializing friendship.”

Fortunately it’s pretty easy to block Beacon – just follow this easy guide and you’ll be safe. For now.
