Facebook for nothin' and your 'net for free...
The tizzy some folks are getting into over finding that their "likes" on Facebook are being turned into what is, in effect, on-the-fly ad copy is amusing.
What did you think was going to pay for this futuristic new way to stay in touch with your friends and family, to keep everyone you know updated on your every meal and movie and micturition? Did you think some kind philanthropist had donated the code and the server space and the bandwidth out of the kindness of his heart?
Here's an important tip: If you want to keep something private, don't write about it on somebody else's hard drive!
How quickly it all becomes an entitlement!
