Here is some of what I’ve been reading this past week. Enjoy your Sunday!

Facebook and privacy

I’ve pretty much had it with Facebook as a way to stay in touch with friends. I even took off the “Like” button from the site as I think you can share with Facebook, but not with the world. Has Facebook jumped the shark?

Confusing *a* public with *the* public is what Facebook’s problem is with the privacy question. Spot on, in my book.

This time line of how Facebook has changed its privacy policy from the Electronic Frontier Foundation gives you the text version of the changes.

Or, if you are more of a visual person, try this brilliantly simple view of how Facebook has changed the default privacy settings for their users.

And make sure you read through the comments because in this post, the comments are just as good as the article itself.
