Default Facebook..

Frankly this is messed up. Anyone reading this who doesn't have facebook, it now has a thing that puts everything you've done in a "news feed". Basically it says who i've added as friends, or befriended, where i've posted anything (on another persons' page, or in a group) what groups i've joined, if i've put up photos.

If I go out to the home page, i can see who my friends have added, the pictures they've put up, where they wrote, what their status was, what they removed or added to their profile.
The largest group that'* sorta our "official" group against it is already over 500,000 people after 48 hours..

It'* REALLY creepy. and it'* all over the news. e.g. Time article online

Thoughts?

EDIT: Link fixed, sorry our internet has been crap since the new ppl moved in, so we ordred DSL tonight...

I just logged on to facebook tonight. I hate it, and I deleted all the stuff associated with my profile, or I think I did anyway. It'* annoying more than anything. I could give a *--t about 97% of that stuff too.

Yeah they've crossed the line, and everyone knows it, hence the uproar.
I joined that petition group last night, and watched it grow from 400,000 to 500,000 members in two hours.

I hate it. It'* sad the developers spent months on this feature, only to have it thrown back in their faces. They really should have gone about doing this a different way, or at least let us turn it off in our privacy settings.

It seems like there is something similar that is trying to be pushed onto myspace. I have never heard of facebook, though

Facebook is for college students to network with people, and stuff. What they're doing with this news feed was first an annoyance, and now it'* starting to be a real privacy problem
