from the joy of tech

yeah, i'm pretty sure facebook is pretty much the opposite of safebook, even if they do both have the same sounds in them.

privacy isn't just about controlling who gets access to your personal information, it's also about controlling how that information gets used. facebook violates that latter principle every time they release a new feature. you have no control over how they'll use your information. right now your cell phone number may be used to strengthen authentication, but who knows what new ways they'll use it tomorrow or next week, all without asking your permission first.
