Facebook should be no surprise to anyone…

Seriously, if you hadn’t figured out long ago that you were the product Facebook was selling, you were not paying very much attention.

Another reason to not spend time on Facebook

Leo Leporte reports that Facebook has added a new “Feature”.  Automatically uploading your mobile device photos to Facebook.
