From the beginning, Facebook has been expanding their control over the information and privacy of its users and only stepping back when the anger was too great to ignore. They may have started out the darling child of the web, but to many they seem more like a drunk frat boy (oversharing and lots of bad decisions). I’m as upset as the next guy, but I’ve never considered Facebook the bastion of online privacy.
Do I think the user should be in total control of where and how their information is used? Yes. Do I think Facebook has crossed the line? Yes. Of course, if we don’t want something seen by everyone, maybe we shouldn’t post it on a site that’s known for overstepping its bounds.
How much is too much?
What do you think - is Facebook going too far?
