Just because it is tied to the government doesn't mean it is always bad.

Of course we can be paranoid. But we shouldn't be paranoid simply at facebook.com . We should be paranoid about everything...every site.
Ironically, the site listed that reveals this "conspiracy" against our privacy;
albumoftheday.com... has an Urchin Tracking Module installed on it (which is used specifically to track your progress as you move around their website). In it's own way, the site that is telling us about facebook's surveillance is also "watching" our activities.

Be paranoid. They "are" watching.

Facebook and similar social networking sites are a real popular starting tool for data mining. You guys are volunteering data that takes them a lot of effort to collect and collate.

The data mining ops that I know anything about (that would be 3) use that sort of information to help determine your contact networks. For some types of data mining, that is ALL they're trying to figure out. Who do you know? Who do you communicate with? What is your social space? What places do you go? What are your political affiliations? Then you see how many people appear to have matching ties to YOU. Later on, once you've established this big relationship tree, a piece of intel like Joe Blowsky is apparently trying to buy slappers from Alcoa, can be mated to your tree...who is this guy Joe? Ok, Joe has a strong contact Ned Nevsky who was a Russian immigrant. Ned was in the military, and some of Ned's ties have known association with Iran's nuclear development. Therefore, Joe asking for slappers makes sense if Ned is getting him to be a sock puppet.

(looks around)

Ok, here is a fairly accurate article you might enjoy. No, I don't have a facebook entry, myself.

I didn't use to know what facebook was, but I have been getting spam e-mails from people I don't even know informing me that I have been added to their facebook. With all of the phishing e-mails I get from ebay, paypal, yahoo, and other sites, I just figured it was some sort of scam.

Plus, I had someone physically use my e-mail address, and maybe even my computer, to set up a myspace account. I was able to access the account and hopefully get it deleted. Then I changed all of my passwords. I had been out of town during the time the account was set up and it was several months before I even found out about it. That was pretty freaky. And I was like why didn't she just set up her own email addy and sign up that way. Totally bizarre. I had never even heard of this person when I went and looked at her info.

Here's some timely news. ADVISE is about to be looked at. I am pretty sure that it is one of a class that seeds from myspace, facebook and the like.
