LinkedIn used to be along the lines of Huey Lewis Working for a Living, but it feels like it has gone more the direction of that 80s song Somebody's Watching Me by Rockwell.

Re: I'm a spy but I'm on your side
@Thomas- Fantastic set of lyrics. Great song. But again, i think we give Facebool too much credit. We open all the cupboards and drawers for them. 

Maybe it should be a song about exhibitionism. But I'm blanking right now.

Re: I'm a spy but I'm on your side
Facebook deserves something edgier, like Peter Gabriel's Intruder.

I know something about opening windows and doors
I know how to move quietly to creep across creaky wooden floors
I know where to find precious things in all your cupboards and drawers

@Shane- the best part of that song is the clapping. there's a great SNL sketch about Oates saying the clapping part was his idea. 

To be fair, that's every social network. And we let them do it.

I'm a spy but I'm on your side
Strong choices all around, Dave. A good back-up song for Facebook:

Private Eyes -- Hall & Oates

"They're watching you. They see your every move."
