Re: Anonymity
@jgherbert exactly! I do wonder if the apps cease to get information of that sort from users, will they stop offering their services for free? Generally, the free ones are the ones that collect the most data, so you are paying for your app with your information, and that cost may be much higher than the couple of dollars that apps tend to sell for.

Re: Anonymity
Agreed. I feel kind of dirty allowing the app to access my friend's information as well, like I'm selling them out. It's so unnecessary.

At least, selfishly it is. Of course, this is normally free apps that want the data, and as the saying has it, if you're not the customer, you're the product, so I guess that's the pay off. That makes it all the more interesting that an anonymous login is a possibility.

Re: Anonymity
@jgherbert I've given up on countless apps b/c they required a FB log-in that they said they could mine not just for my info but the info of all my friends.

Anonymity
Anonymous login? At last! I like the idea of being able to access apps without having to give it access to everything about me... Bring it on, Facebook!

Good to see FB growing up a bit.

Mobile and other related devices.
Very informative. I think they have succeeded for some extent on these developments for mobile and other related devices.


The Business of Going Digital
The Business of Going Digital
Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
