Facebook and privacy

This is obviously a hot topic lately, especially with FB’s latest round of changes. This time there’s less of an uproar from users (at least, in my news feed, anyway) perhaps because these changes don’t affect the interface in a major way as have past changes. On the other hand, the new changes are at a much deeper level, and leave users with a difficult decision regarding their privacy, leading toward a share all or nothing scenario.

Gizmodo posted a compelling article, Top 10 Reasons to Quit Facebook. The article also points to EFF‘s timeline of changes to FB’s privacy policy, which shows a clear tendency toward a default of share everything, all or nothing.
