Paul Robert Lloyd on Facebook:
>Over time, I found it became less valuable; a utility for procrastination. As the company sought rapid growth, the design moved away from encouraging users to create close personal networks, towards openly sharing every aspect of their lives, with everybody and often unknowingly.
True, but this bit is pretty scathing:
>Much like producing advertising campaigns for cigarette companies, **working for Facebook has become an ethically questionable career move**.
Ouch. Even given how much I hate Facebook — I can’t agree with that last quote. I do however think that Lloyd is right in saying that Facebook has become rather arrogant — so too has Google, Apple, Microsoft, and RIM.
