Ένα αρκετά καλό άρθρο στην Guardian.uk

"With friends like these..."

Κάποια quotes:

"I despise Facebook. This enormously successful American business describes itself as "a social utility that connects you with the people around you". But hang on. Why on God's earth would I need a computer to connect with the people around me? Why should my relationships be mediated through the imagination of a bunch of supergeeks in California? What was wrong with the pub?"

"Clearly, Facebook is another uber-capitalist experiment: can you make money out of friendship? Can you create communities free of national boundaries - and then sell Coca-Cola to them? Facebook is profoundly uncreative. It makes nothing at all. It simply mediates in relationships that were happening anyway."

"With Facebook Ads, our brands can become a part of the way users communicate and interact on Facebook," said Carol Kruse, vice president, global interactive marketing, the Coca-Cola Company."

"...have you Facebook users ever actually read the privacy policy? It tells you that you don't have much privacy. Facebook pretends to be about freedom, but isn't it really more like an ideologically motivated virtual totalitarian regime with a population that will very soon exceed the UK's? Thiel and the rest have created their own country, a country of consumers."

Και κάτι ενδιαφέρον από το privacy policy του facebook:

2 You can't delete anything

"When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information."

ακόμα, "μια μάχη στο νετ.. πόσο μας νοιάζει;"

"Google makes friends with network sites to battle Facebook"

και κάτι ακόμα από ΤΑ ΝΕΑ

αλλά και την καθημερινή

αν θέλετε μπορούμε εδώ να κάνουμε μια συλλογή άρθρων για μελλοντικές αναφορές σχετικά με το facebook
