Facebook privacy roundup

Steven Mansour has written a nice roundup of various articles and blog entries about Facebook's stance on privacy. What is interesting to me is not so much the concentration on Facebook, it is that there seems to be a growing awareness of the importance and breadth of privacy issues amongst the general public, at least in the UK. Although I'm sure in the UK the cause of that interest is mainly because of our hapless government rather than Facebook, it is heartening to see people starting to think about the issues around online identity and data privacy.

Re: Facebook privacy roundup

Hi Alan
Your Facebook story is an interesting one, have you been following the Robert Scoble saga this week? The privacy issue that you mention with Facebook is a general one. I notice you commented on Garlik and the UK 26m person data breach.

(I've referenced your story in my latest blog posting on Facebook.)
