Mo' Data Mo' Problems

Nobody wants to have the kinds of problems Facebook has - not even Facebook. I don't exactly know how how to meaningfully minimize data when you've got over 2 billion users, but oddly companies like Facebook run as fast as they can in the opposite direction, collecting not only vast amounts of data users enter into their profiles but also data about everything they do and everywhere they go. It's almost as though they can't see how their greed is hurting them.
