Facebook Changes

I’ve had a Facebook account for a few months now. I don’t use it as much as my MySpace, but I do use it (especially more lately). I noticed that there is a petition going around there that warns users about some “Beacon” software that literally tells everyone on your friends list what purchases you’ve made online! To me that’s insane!! Well, a ton of others felt the same way – in fact, over 50,000 users on Facebook felt that way also!

I was scanning my “Latest Headlines” on my Firefox that reports from BBC News “Protests force Facebook to change” – the users of Facebook actually accomplished something with their petition!!

I’d never signed up for the Beacon software on my account. But I’d surely be PISSED if what I was buying was being popped up all over Facebook! Don’t people think of these things before they make software?

  1. People are greedy, if you bought a computer than they will show you mice and keyboards. It is pretty genius but also an invasion of privacy at the same time.
