Oh, and by the way, a minor point, really... Facebook will tell everyone that you are doing all of the above, even if you don't want anyone to know.
The other day, there was a spate of problems where people with Facebook accounts tried logging into sites where the site had a FACEBOOK like button and all of them were re-directed every time to Facebook and then told it was an error.
Error, my butt!
Given Facebook's arrogance and obvious desire to be everything to everyone on the internet, this was likely an experiment by Facebook engineers of a new program that would redirect any user with a Facebook account back to Facebook from wherever they want to be, regardless of what they want. In support of this idea, those same sites that were supposedly being affected by the FACEBOOK like button was NOT affecting anyone who did not have a Facebook account. Interesting, huh?
It would not surprise me in the least to see, within 5 years or sooner, Facebook have a 'browser app' on their page that will enable you to go to any other site on the web from there. Heck, Yahoo Messenger and Live Messenger have already integrated Facebook and other lesser social medias into their systems.
Of course, anything that happens through any of the nice and convenient collections will be recorded and analyzed, sorted and categorized and eventually sold to the highest bidder!
Facebook is becoming the biggest threat to privacy on the net today. Their overbearing arrogance has made them a problem of a degree that Microsoft never even dreamed of!
