Facebook and me

After much resistance to Facebook in particular and social networking sites in general I joined yesterday – sounds like it’s not just Obama who’s a hypocrite😀 . I found quite a few friends (who are so already in flesh space) plus potential ones, like an old school mate … interesting. Interesting that Facebook is seen as more conservative than MySpace (see also image below); both of them of course exploit user data for commercial purposes, and in this context Facebook has been very obnoxious with Beacon (at least in the past). Anyway, it’ll hopefully be a critical-thinking experience as well as social engagement😉 .
