Facebook Information Privacy

“The dispute is also a reminder that free services such as Facebook and Google come with a price. Consumers need to keep a truism in mind: If you’re not paying for the product, then you’re not the customer—you’re the product being sold. Social media services such as Facebook take advantage of data that consumers disclose about themselves to enable advertisers to deliver ever more targeted marketing to them.” – WSJ

Thank you, Wall Street Journal for reminding consumers not to complain when Facebook changes the user interface because the service provided is FREE and an individual is not required to use the site. Users can and should provide feedback, but should not complain about information privacy which was willingly provided.
