Because of this, I’m tempted.
“What asshole bizdev person at Facebook thought it’d be a good idea to let third party sites implant your purchase history on Facebook? Tracking user behaviour across third party sites is wrong. Ignoring an opt-out popup for 20 seconds is not evidence of informed consent. We used to brainstorm ideas like that at Google but the basic ‘Don’t be evil’ ethos always squished the discussions I was in. Facebook apparently lacks a moral compass.”
Weird thing is that through Facbook, I’ve actually caught up with people who I’d like to stay in touch with, and piping this blog into everyone’s news feeds helps me do it. Maybe it’s not worth it, though.
How about you?
