Share A few days ago friend invited me to join facebook, I joined it but the problem is that now that friend only communicates via facebook, we used to text and email, and phone each other. So my question is What is the purpose of Facebook and similar web sites? All of these websites called themselves Social Networking sites. And people join them to become more socials in their life. But it doesn’t seems to me like that.
Share Facebook has made significant changes to its recently launched Beacon advertising platform after 50,000 Facebook members signed a MoveOn.org petition over a 10-day period, asking the site to respect user privacy. Beacon sends messages to members friends about what they are purchasing online. If the member booked a trip to Japan on Travelocity.com, for example, friends on Facebook would know it. If the member purchased a ticket to “American Gangster,” that would also be known among friends.
