Windows Live has partnered with facebook
and feeds them not only your contact list, but also a history of every email address you've ever sent mail to. This is how facebook is able to send
me emails telling me that people I corresponded with briefly five years ago have facebook accounts...even though I don't have a facebook account.
Facebook has a similar arrangement with yahoo mail
, auto-connecting everyone on your
contact list with their facebook accounts.
Facebook is also integrated with battlenet
as everyone who plays World of Warcraft or Starcraft can attest to.
Facebook is now using geolocation
to show the world where you are and
where you've been.
Facebook's Privacy statement
is a vague statement that they'll "try their best" to keep your
information secure, and that they don't give information to their advertisers as part of their personalized advertising placements. They do not
say they won't blatantly sell or give away your information to corporate or government entities
And now ATS is inviting
everyone to create an association with their facebook accounts. What intelligence
organization wouldn't want the real name, personal data and pictures of everyone on the biggest conspiracy site in the world?
Intelligence op? Yeah, probably.
So who wants to associate themselves and every post they've ever written here on ATS with their personal profile on facebook, pictures of yourself
and your family, and geolocation data showing where you physically reside? Have you ever spoken on an unpopular topic? Expressed an interest in
? Talked about what
you own? Now's your chance to associate those discussions with who you are
personally and where you and your family can be found.
I'll pass, thanks.
