Facebook – the wrong social compact

[tweetmeme source=”franscomputerservices” only_single=false]The wrong social compact (that sub title is on page 2) … what an excellent article — THE WHOLE ARTICLE on this Facebook mess: Chris Saad: “Facebook’s Claims About Data Portability Are False”.

ReadWriteWeb is doing a great job on covering this whole privacy, security, breaking of faith by facebook with its users and the twisting of words by it’s founder.

Marshall Kirkpatrick’s The Half Truths of Mark Zuckerberg is another excellent example of calling out the BS.

Thank you Chris Saad and Marshall Kirkpatrick!

And thanks to Leo Laporte for his continued understanding of this mess and talking about it on his shows (twit.tv/twig42 (for one), and backing up his understanding with action.

Funny how Google hasn’t caught up with it all as yet, because when you click on Leo’s link on Facebook — every 10 seconds you receive a popup telling you to sign in to continue – over and over — while you try to view the page that is actually still there apparently, or maybe Leo just kept his professional page only. Leo had several personnas on Facebook from what he said on the show. He had apparently already deleted his personal Facebook page before they did TWig 42.

There are many alternatives for a business presence in things like LinkedIn, Twitter, your professional website and blogs and of course search engines.
