Facebook’s ReadWriteWeb Rings Alarm Bells
So Facebook is changing. Wait. They are not changing. They are just doing what they do normally. They just, well overhauling the way the site works.
There are a lot of good things and there are some really bad things. Now I have always treated Facebook with kid gloves and I have never been one to spend too much time crying about privacy on there because I don’t put private stuff on Facebook. But for those who do, it disturbs me a bit.
Now with the new features there comes one called ReadWriteWeb. What it does is that it pretty much tells people what you were doing on the Net. if you visted www.girlsfromasiawholiketoshowtheirvaginastolonelymeninfarawaycountries.com then it will be picked up by Facebook.
It now just feels as if they are turning proper evil and keeping watch on what you are doing on the Internet too closely.
The crap thing is that a lot of what Facebook is doing now is shameless. Tons of stuff has no opt-out so you can’t go ‘dark’ unless you are off it. As far as sharing as concerned, you are not given an option, not to share.
So what I would say is that when you are not actively on Facebook, log out. Big Brother is now stalking you!
If you can help it, get off Facebook!
