I personally think it's a good idea. I'm a pretty private person and I've refused thus far to engage in social networking. I created a myspace page a while back just to see what it was all about. I removed it very shortly after creating it because I realized the privacy impacts.
I don't want people to be able to find out who I'm friends with and what they're into. I'd like to be able to control what people are able to see about me based on who they are. I can control what I put up, but I can't control what everyone else is putting up. Maybe once users have more control I'll participate.
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

I find these sites to be about as annoying as a ringing telephone.

Agreed ^. I don't see what the allure is in the first place. All it does is put you in touch with people that you lost touch with in the first place, for a reason.

I'll agree 50%. Myspace has done one thing I do like:

Facebook... I deleted my account and didn't look back. I hated it. The pages of a typical facbook account are covered in apps now that someone thought was a neat idea. It's the ****ing blinking text HTML code of the Social Networking World.

It's actually not surprising. In Canada, there are privacy laws to protect individuals from both gov't and corporate misuse. In the US, there is no privacy laws period. (save for HIPPA IIRC). Gov't and corporations can do with your information what they want.

The best part of myspace is the 15 year olds claiming they are 18, and the 18 year olds posting pictures 1/2 nude and drunk.

Doesn't have to be in the Constitution. HIPPA isn't and it protects your privacy in the health area. I'm amazed at the amount of information the gov't and private organizations can collect and FREELY distribute here without your consent.
