re: Facebook Says User Data Is Price Of Admission
I've been backing away from FB for two years now. Just feeling more and more like I'm a pawn in their game. Using my personal content to sell ads and facial recognition to help people find and tag me, which in turn will create data to sell against more ads? The shark has been jumped. The people I want to find pictures of me have no problem doing it because they're MY FRIENDS. It doesn't need to be suggested to them. I'll put up with these tactics from Google because Google provides very useful services. Facebook does not.

Friends, in the meaningful sense of the word, don't advertise to each other.

Seems like stating the obvious, but perhaps it puts them in a better legally defensible position against complaints.
