Big. Zucker

 We've known for some time that Kid Zuckerman's Excellent Enterprise, Facebook it's called, is up to no good, but it remains to be seen just how much of it they've bit off.

And now we know that all those partial posts we've written, but then thought better of and self-censored, that all of that stuff goes in the data-mining hopper along with the stuff we actually sent.

This article at Crooks 'n' Liars details this new revelation. It's been clear all along that the purpose of Facebook is to mine our data, which is then sold to advertisers and
who knows who. That's reason enough right there to avoid the place.

Yeah, I've got notifications pending. Who cares?
