    There is a reason that I don't have a Facebook account, or any account except apug for that matter.
    I read all the pages of the TOC. Would anyone in their right mind "accept and agree to be bound by the terms and provisions of the TOS // which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you"?

    Erosion of one's illusion of privacy while communicating in public.????? Illusion of maintaining property rights when displaying in a pubic forum.???? Central Banks and quality easing of the value of the currency you use..... Upsetting that the Merchant class has so much money they don't really care about your business. Solution.. Vote with your money. Buy from he/she whom supports your value system. And when given the opportunity.. provide a bit of sand for the lubricant of the big machine.

    I do not have a problem with these new service terms since I do not use Facebook nor any other time wasting social media. If I want to interact with someone I know, I get off my butt and go see them.

    That's easy when you don't live halfway around the world from most family and a big portion of your friends.

    Perhaps globalization has to do with the popularity of social networks?

    Well, APUG is hardly the place for bleeding edge technology discussions, so I suppose social media isn't a hot topic here in general.
