Facebook's Zuckerberg Says The Age of Privacy is Over 

Ahhh Facebook.  Poison of humanity.  So it seems that the founder of Facebook thinks that privacy isn’t important to people anymore.  He also argues that today, people in genral are more ofrthcoming with information about themselves, evidenced by their use of Twitter, Myspace (a rival), and their love of reality TV.  Hmmmm….   And furthermore, he goes on to state that its Facebook’s responsibility as an innovator to help people make this change. (its for their own good)

Wow.  Well read it for yourself and think for a minute who this new public information policy really benefits: the millions of users or Zuckerman and his board?  With all your stuff searchable and available to anyone (or any company) online, you become instant marketing targets = $$$ for Zuckerman and his crew,  Now I am not knocking his attempt to make a buck, but to try and make people think that their privacy is unnecessary is obnoxious and condescending.  The issue of privacy is not that people are trying to hide their assorted skeletons, but rather that we all have the right to keep things to ourselves or manage who you share that trust with.  And if you can’t use Facebook and keep things to yourself than I see stop using Facebook altogether.  You can always pick up the phone and call someone to update them on your life. : )

as peeped on MASHABLE! here—-> Facebook Marketing: IKEA’s Genius Use of Photo Tagging

Our 2 Cents:
FaceBook has never really impressed me but we recognize its role in today’s social landscape. And of course we typically laugh at how mjor brands and companies try to jump on FB to promote themselves as “forward thinking” or “hip and cool”. But IKEA, who we’ve managed to quietly appreciate despite some shoddy furniture (broken couch legs happen way too often) has blown all other brands outta the proverbial social waters with their latest Facebook campaign. IKEA launched a new store. Decided to advertise it on FB instead of “the old fashioned way” and for extra spice posted images of the “living areas” they have set up all over the store in their FB Photo album. Why is that so cool? Well for one thing it really underlines how a company can embrace new ways of reaching audiences arther than just doing the same old thing. But more importnantly they drew an “audience”. Everyone that visited the profile could tag and item with their name and IKEA would give it to them. Genius. Social Interaction + Free Stuff = Shitloads of traffic, advertising, tweets, and word of mouth promo which is like “GOLD Jerry, pure Gold!”

The Day Facebook Changed - Messages to Become Public by Default - NYTimes.com 

Well we finally did it people!  Next stop Terminator/1984/Planet of the Apes!

“Facebook messages are about to be publicly visible. A whole lot of people are going to hate it. When ex-lovers, bosses, moms, stalkers, cops, creeps and others find out what people have been posting on Facebook - the reprimand that “well, you could have changed your default setting” is not going to sit well with people.
Robots FTW
The soft fleshed creatures that we Facebook users are will likely hate the new setting, at least at first. But robots are going to love it. As the largest social network on the web, with an incredible amount of time spent on the site by its users, Facebook holds a giant reservoir of demographic and sentiment data. It is the mother lode - and it’s been inaccessible so far because everything has been private so far.”

I’ve been saying this for years about Facebook (since it’s sky high market value was decided) but I always hoped I was wrong. Possibly the greatest bait-and-switch of our generation - give people a platform to extend their real world relationships online and earn their trust through privacy and deception that this online communication is as intimate as offline interaction with actual friends / family / colleagues / et al. Amass immeasurable amounts of REAL - not simulated or surveyed - data about individuals, demographics, and their precise habits of interest and consumption, sell it to the highest bidder.

Who needs Nielsen ratings when Facebook API can give you realtime information about who’s discussing Transformers or Drake by zip code, neighborhood, time of day, where they work, where they went to school, similar interests, political affiliation, religion, relationship status, events attended, social reach… even when you knew all of this was possible and probable, it’s like wandering around on the Planet of The Apes for five years only to arrive at the decayed rubble of the lady liberty… and thousands of drunk frat boys trying to get her to show some nip and make out with another chick so they can post it from their iphones.

Facebook: the Department store?

as ssen at grownupthinking.com

So as if Facebook wasn’t bad enough, now they’re selling clothes. As the web continues to evolve, the geniuses at FB have created a new way for companies with fan pages to market more shit to the rest of us.  The thinking behind this new feature seems to be that if I see a “cool” top i’ll comment and recommend it to all my friends on facebook and they’ll do the same and so and so on until we all buy up the inventory and all look the same: cool. hahaha  Hate to sound jaded but I guess we just are sometimes.

I haven’t rushed over to my FB page just yet to see this in action but isn’t this kind of counterproductive to what social media is supposed to be about.  Sure FB helps people keep in touch with each others social lives but to assume that just because one person likes a top by the GAP or Dolce on their page can’t possibly mean it will turn in to a sale.  Can it?
