You’re not paying Facebook for their service, so they’ve got virtually no incentive to create the best experience for you to stay in touch with your ‘friends’. It’s just a means to an end for them, anything barely adequate will suffice. Their real incentives lie with providing advertisers with as much of your info as possible, so that they can drill down and target you with their god awful ads, in an attempt to maximise their click through rate. That goal takes priority over everything else, even that pesky privacy stuff. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. This should not be surprising.

Comments

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
