Facebook of the dead- Boing Boing


This special feature on BoingBoing, Facebook of the dead, takes a while to get out of Southern California in the 70s, but warms up about halfway through. Snip:

Then again, as the tech journalist Wagner James Au pointed out in a Boing Boing comment thread, “most people are willing to sacrifice some privacy in exchange for greater and deeper social connectivity. Or to put it another way, since Facebook makes it much easier for you to find and connect with a long lost friend or family member on the Internet, do you really care all that much that the ads on the sidebar were precisely targeted at you?”
