still won’t do stupid shit for no reason: i keep getting tempted to join facebook, but then something like this happens.
note to self: i will not sign up for stupid shit for no reason. maybe later, but not for now.
in short: i am not going to give away ownership of private information in the hands of a company who happily does what it pleases with it. microsoft may well be filthy rich, but they don’t value facebook at $15 billion for nothing. and facebook is some software, servers and bandwidth + millions of users who give away information about themselves for the ability of keeping in touch with people that (hopefully) matters to them. so no, i’m not going to let information about myself, my relations, interests, pictures and possible opinions about stuff become the intellectual property of a company that makes billions of dollars out of it.
and as the saying goes – just because i’m paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get me. i’m easily seduced.
