Well, I'm considering Facebook again. At the moment, I've just spent a sizable amount of time searching for 'the other side of the story', so my perceptions are not objective.
But, gee...I don't know...
so as usual, I've gone surfing. Here's just a bit of what I found. (To be fair, I went searching in order to find the negatives - the reasons not...)
Article called "With Friends Like These"
Article on Facebook and academia
Article on possible military security breach
Article of Facebook 'using' users to translate site - for free - rather than professionals.
I repeat: I trust Laura, and she's really smart, and she's pretty much out there on the web anyway since much of her business grows there - and she's promised me a catch-up phone call that will include conversation about Facebook. I'll wait for that.
But at the moment, I'll skip it. And partly because it's so hard to read any information about it until AFTER you sign up. What's up with that?
