pretty amazing huh

here's a GNOME developer's take on it, insightful

but importantly, unlike all other attempts at this type of thing, these guys aren't doing it in their free time -- they've been PAID to spend ALL SUMMER working on it exclusively

and they've got a catchy name

it says "nsfw," but it is sfw


Subsequent wailing about privacy settings on Facebook or any other social network is at best a red herring, at worst disingenuous bullshit. “Oh, but my Facebook account is private…. but my Twitter stream is locked!” Oh please. If all it takes to break a privacy system is for one of your friends to copy and repost your “private” photos or tweets then they’re not private at all. The only true privacy is not to post anything on a social network that you wouldn’t want the world to see. It’s like that old advice for sending credit card numbers by email: think of it like a postcard; you wouldn’t send your credit card number that way, so don’t do it by email. Think of photos on Facebook as the colourful side of that postcard. We can blame Mark Zuckerberg all we like for killing privacy, but the truth is all he’s doing is giving us the rope with which to hang it ourselves.

I haven't even touched on the various reasons people might want to keep these conversations private. They range from the profound, like avoiding workplace discrimination, protecting political dissidents or avoiding an abusive husband, to the banal, like cheating on your wife. But it really doesn't matter. It is not for any of us to decide on behalf of someone else what information should be considered private.

From one of the comments:
Facebook also uses your IP address to share profile suggestions. This is not cool. I have my account completely locked down (you cannot search me by name or email address; only friends can see my content; everything that can be private is set that way). BUT when I generated an anonymous, "test" account and added one friend—NOT in my real account's friend list— my REAL account then became a friend suggestion on my "test" account. Hmmmm? Not cool.
I've suspected this to be true. This is problematic for people who want to try their luck at anonymity with a second account.

I wish I could choose to have facebook stop telling me who to be friends with and which of my friends to contact.

haha:
The Diaspora* group was inspired to begin their project after hearing a talk by Eben Moglen, a law professor at Columbia University, who described the centralized social networks as “spying for free,” Mr. Salzberg said.
