Ayup. Can't remember who wrote the essay on this (a lot of people have made the point), but if you are not paying a service fee to the company, then you are the product...

FB is simply selling its social graph to advertisers as an alternative to Google's approach to indexing the internet. Rather than a top-down approach, they provide a context-sensitive, filtered indexing of the web. I'm sure I'm not telling anyone anything that they don't already know.
