"to Google’s point, if people want to deactivate their Facebook accounts and/or try another service, they shouldn’t lose what they’ve created. When you join a new service, the best way it becomes useful and interesting is to quickly find and invite your existing friends (see: network effects)–and the best way to do that is to import a list of your email contacts.

The problem is you don’t own your friends’ email addresses; they do. Email is the only successful example of a decentralized social network."

"Ever heard of “Super-logoff” or “whitewalling”? They are ways to designate what some teens have been doing in order to have total control over who posts what (and when) on their Facebook page.

Imagine deactivating your account every time you log out of Facebook, and activating it again when you want to go on it. Or how about meticulously erasing each and every post, status update, link, or comment after you are “done” sharing it? If you take the Super-logoff route, then other people can’t post anything on your wall when you’re not there to filter it quickly. They won’t even be able to look you up. Whitewalling, on the other hand, keeps your Facebook content invariably current, of the moment."

" Places is different from the current location-based social services, like Foursquare and Gowalla, in that it's not about creating a "game" around locations or "rewarding" users for checking-in. These types of services reward users with discounts, freebies and symbolic badges for frequenting locations. Places is simply about sharing location-based experiences within the Facebook network.

"So why is the Facebook Places announcement such a big deal, especially with other products like Foursquare offering loyalty incentives and even discounts for users? Simple: Facebook's sheer size and influence. With Facebook joining the location-based game, you'll see a much more rapid adoption of location services among social users, which will benefit both the users and the businesses participating. Facebook can truly take location mainstream."

"we built everything on echoecho to optimise speed, elegance and utility to the USER – but never at the expense of the user’s privacy. The trouble is that many other social networks are optimised to give maximum value to the NETWORK (or in the case of Foursquare and Facebook Places to a venue/brand/advertiser). That’s a hell of a way to design a user experience – which is supposed to be about maximising value for the user."

"here's an easy way to use Facebook Places but restrict the information to only a select group of friends with whom you feel comfortable sharing your whereabouts.

"And while you're at it, it's probably a good idea to disable the "Friends can check me in to Places" option under the "Things others share" section of privacy controls."

"I study the ways new media shapes people's perceptions of the world. It's my fond hope that social networks such as Facebook will help users broaden their perspectives by listening to a different set of people than they encounter in their daily life. But I fear services such as Facebook may be turning us into imaginary cosmopolitans."

"Early users of the service are offering long, thoughtful answers. That will change in time, but answers that aren't helpful will not be voted up. Will obnoxious partisan answers be voted to the top in a tyranny of the majority? Even if such an answer were to be at the top, the next one below it would likely be more informative, empathetic and useful. Facebook engineer Beau Hartshorne has also said on the site that users will be demoted if they ask questions that are really assertions. There will be individual Questions that get nothing but terrible answers - but in aggregate, due to the scale of the humanity doing the voting, I think the Questions experience will be on balance strong."

"it may be best if marketers approached this question as if the answer is zero -- unless and until the brand does something to create value with Facebook Fans."

"One thing Facebook has made clear is that the privacy changes apply to all content retroactively as well as new products going forward. There's now one control (found by going to the Account menu and then Privacy Settings) that allows users to make all of their content—photos, contact info, wall postings, etc.—available to only friends, friends of friends, or everyone. If users want to customize those settings on a more granular basis, they can, but that's no longer required if users want to just make one click and be done with it."
