Is Facebook Growing Up Too Fast?
by possibly noteworthy at 7:42 am EDT, Mar 30, 2009

When does a scene become a cult?

"They wanted me to be wasting my time on it just like they were wasting their time on it."

Facebook’s new “engagement” ads ask users to become fans of products and companies -- sometimes with the promise of discounts. If a person gives in, that commercial allegiance is then broadcast to all of the person’s friends on the site.

Dwindling secrets, and prying eyes, are at the heart of the Facebook conundrum. While offering an efficient and far-reaching way for people to bond, the site has also eroded sometimes natural barriers.

Samantha Power:

There are great benefits to connectedness, but we haven't wrapped our minds around the costs.

Peter Schiff:

I think things are going to get very bad.

Jack Kerouac:

"You boys going to get somewhere, or just going?" We didn't understand his question, and it was a damned good question.
